If you are going to do a basketball quiz, you need to include players gov't names (ie the name your momma gave you) and the name we know them by.

Nope. I don't expect Quizmaster to require Samuel Clemons for literary quizzes in lieu of Mark Twain. This is no different.

So you would expect to answer "Charles Jerome" for Daly? Seriously?

Calling Magic Earvin is like calling Tiger Eldrick ~ nobody does it!

christian laettner was never good.... definitely not dream team if hes there
Mar 22, 2013
Its just because he hit one easy shot
Jun 6, 2013
Shaq shoulda been there instead.

The undeserved honor only makes his mediocrity that much more obvious. Although "mediocrity" at the NBA level is still a relative concept.

I know your post is 4 yrs old but I had to comment anyway because of the sheer ignorance of it. 1 easy shot?? The shot was anything but easy and at the time Laettner was one of the best players in NCAA history. And I hate Duke.

Correction...he put on an offensive performance that will probably never be matched. He missed 0 shots in that game...not even from the free throw line.

If Hakeem Olajuwon had been eligible (he was not a U.S. citizen and had played nationally for Nigeria earlier in his career), he of course should have gone. Since he couldn't, and since the team architects appeared set on taking one college player, yes, of course, it should have been Shaq. Everyone outside a little corner of North Carolina knew that.

Laettner dominated college basketball the four years he was at Duke. Duke made the Final Four all four year he was in college and won two national championships. Sure Christian Laettner did not have as successful professional career as O'Neal. However, Laettner played for very average teams in the pros while O'Neal always had great teammates. They wanted one college player on the Dream Team in 1992. Based on college careers Laettner was the most deserving at the time.

"Laettner played for very average teams in the pros while O'Neal always had great teammates." Wait a minute, what? Did you watch basketball in the '90s/early 2000s? Shaq was completely unguardable. Kobe did not make that happen. Nor did Laettner have any similar or comparable talents.

Chris Laettner was even selected for Team Usa in 1998 but couldn't participate due to the lockdown.

2:08 left. I had to think about some of them. I miss seeing some of them play... "STOCKTON!!!! TO MALONE!!!!" BOOMSHAKALAKA!
Jul 6, 2012
TenderHeart you are so right. STOCKTON TO MALONE!!!!!!!! The old Jazz were good.

I can't believe that 12% of the people who took this quiz didn't remember Magic was on the team.
Mar 12, 2017
It's kinda understandable if you didn't actually watch them play. Magic had retired from the NBA because of his HIV in 1991, so it's understandable that someone just wracking their brain for who the biggest names in basketball were at the time might have not have thought to try him.

I got 8. I probably can't name 8 players currently in the NBA...

The '92 Olympic team didn't take Shaq because he had signed a huge endorsement deal with Pepsi and Coke was the official sponsor of the Olympics. Remember, 1992 was the height of the so called "Cola Wars."
Apr 27, 2015
I CAN'T TAKE IT ANYMORE!!!
May 15, 2014
Just type last names, people! Quit complaining. lol

Better dream team is in present day. James, Parker, Duncan, Durant, Anthony, Ibaka, too many to name. This is better.
Nov 23, 2016
@thisisfun - That is just plain wrong. Magic, Bird, and Jordan on one team? Nobody is taking that down. Wasn't Carmelo on the team that couldn't even win the gold? I think Lebron and Duncan were on that team too. They got the Bronze in 2004.
Jun 24, 2014
Tony Parker is from France. He wouldn't be a part of a US Olympic team. Neither would Ibaka. And if you think that bunch you called off could have taken down the '92 bunch in their prime, I feel sorry for the basketball you've been watching.

It's two very different styles of ball. I think the modern guys would give these guys a run for their money only because nearly every player on the court these days can knock down long range shots. Dirk, Durant, Love, even Mirotic from the bulls are all 6-10 or taller and can drop 3 pointers. The days of a Patrick Ewing are dwindling. You would see the dream team drive to the bucket and play with their back to the basket. You would see the modern guys shooting long range shots, and as long as they are on, they could beat this team. BUT the dream team era defense was tighter, so their looks wouldn't be as good as they are now. It makes for an interesting discussion.

10/13. Not bad for someone whose only memories of basketball from the 90s came from playing NBA Jam.

100% with 2:07 to go.

I was about to call shenanigans, and then realized I was trying to put Peregrin Took on the team.
Jan 19, 2017
100% easily. I know this team lol

I feel bad for the one percent who miss MJ
May 4, 2017
How does anyone miss Jordan? That's like taking the 60 point game quiz and forgetting Chamberlain.
Apr 26, 2018
Every single time, I guess Isaiah Thomas and then I'm surprised when it doesn't work. Weird, since his exclusion was such a big deal at the time. The story apparently goes that others on the team, particularly Michael Jordan, didn't want him there, and Jordan may even have refused to play if Thomas was on the team.
