Why do you have to go and put a picture of Phil Jackson up there, but then don't have him as an answer? I just typed his name or a variation of it like 24 times thinking myself crazy because I forgot his name.

I tried underarm as a guess and it didn't work. I don't know what the difference between underarm and underhand is, maybe it can be allowed?

Boy that is generous. Underarm is one's armpit. Underhand is a way to throw a ball in various sports.

In UK underhand isn't a throwing word (it means sneaky or cheating). Thank you for including underarm. Particularly as I only got three right. All guesses.

What's sad about Dwight Howard--actually, what is yet another of the many things that are sad about Dwight Howard--is that he may hold the record, but his career has gone steadily down to the point that every team since Orlando that has taken him has come to regret it. He looked like a lock for the Hall of Fame five years ago. Now? Not so much.

And the news just gets worse for DH. He tried his best last year in Atlanta, but still got shipped off to Charlotte. As much as I disliked him during his Lakers years, I'm hoping he can turn it around enough to end his career with at least a measure of dignity.

This quiz is great, but it's a bit rough around the edges. A) Kyrie Irving does not actually think the Earth is flat. You should add "allegedly." B) A question about the Big Baller Brand does not belong in this quiz. Lonzo has not even been drafted yet. That is all.

Dwight howard now plays for the nets, which makes his career even more sad. All the teams that he has played for were bad. The lakers were kinda good but when they signed Dwight, they became bad.
