Geez, I don't remember Rodman playing for the Spurs. Great quiz!

He left the bench and sat on a baseline with his shoes off in the conference finals against the Rockets. He was uncontrollable for the Spurs. He was always a bad boy, but it was in San Antonio where he actually earned much of his "loose cannon" reputation.

100% with less than 10 seconds left! Fun quiz. You could update it with other historical, if lesser-known, trades.

This needs to be updated a little more. LeBron switched from Cavs to Heat and now back to Cavs.

I got all but one with about 3 minutes remaining... then I sat there picturing Carlos Boozer's face, but taking like 90 seconds to remember his name. LOL.

It's rarer for a multi-year player *not* to switch teams.

I think Dwayne Wade moving from the Heat to the Bulls should be added too

Jeremy Lin is nowhere near the profile of these other guys. Was racking my brain and couldn't think of who the quiz was possibly asking for.

Agreed, that one was really random especially at this point in time. It was a bigger deal at the time, as most things are. :-)

Every player on the list except one has been on multiple all star teams and everyone more than a year or two removed from the present is/will be a hall of famer except one who has started only 50% of his career games. To quote Sesame Street "One of these things is not like the other". In 10 years he'll be remembered like Ickey Woods or Mark Fidrych players with short careers with only one or two above average seasons but became media darlings during them except he was never as good as either one. As a resident of Houston, I hated watching him because he was abysmal on defense and when he wasn't driving to the basket was worthless on offense. One thing was always certain the opposing team's point guard was going to come close to his best game of the season when playing the Rockets.

Jeremy Lin is the most underrated and overrated player of all-time.
