I got all but four. Not even an NBA fan these days - most of what I know comes from playing NBA Jam as a kid. It's newer ones like the Thunder and Pelicans that trip me up, though I also forgot the Cavs and 76ers.

"Sixers" is accepted for 76ers. "Knicks" is accepted for Knickerbockers. "Blazers" is accepted for Trailblazers. "Mavs" is accepted for Mavericks. "Cavs" is accepted for Cavaliers. and finally, "Wolves" is accepted for Timberwolves. so, HectorVortac, several nicknames are in fact accepted for several entries on this quiz. "TWolves" should probably also be accepted.
