Yeah... Yao's photo was on the quiz, so I assumed I already answered him in the first bit. Turns out I missed him. FAIL.

Never heard of Blackman, I thought it was Renaldo Balkman by mistake but he's from Puerto Rico and certainly doesn't have 8,500 points.

It's a Ukrainian last name originally, but in centuries there was a lot of movement around there, so it's not 100% reliable.

If Ro Blackman is on this list no reason not to include Thompson. Neither born as us citizens and both moved to the US around 10 years of age.

I believe that four of these players were on the Spurs at the same time. Amazing what that organization has done putting together some great teams.

Was surprised there weren't more Canadians on here only to find out there aren't really that many that have played at the professional level at all. Andrew Wiggins and Tristan Thompson will probably be on here at some point.

Did he not get enough points? Probably not. He was less of a scorer and more of a tree.

Yup he only had 1,599 points in his career. He had more blocks than points which makes sense
