I love tall people! Wasn't Manute Bol closer to 7'6? I also read an article stating that some players get measured in shoes and others are measured bare feet.

I know almost nothing about sports. When Shaq wasn't on this list I knew I was in trouble. I only got 1.. and after the answers were revealed I saw that I've only even heard of 2.

Great quiz. I got most that I had heard of, forgot Sabonis even though I loved watching him!

Otherwise unremarkable for Tommy Burleson? Helped David Thompson dethrone the UCLA dynasty. Beat Lefty Driesell's best Maryland club almost singlehandedly in the best ACC tournament game ever. And he's from NC State, not North Carolina.

Can't believe I missed Breuer. He played for the Bucks when I was a kid in Milwaukee. Seemed like a nice enough guy but I could never understand why he'd miss a layup (or for that matter why he didn't dunk everything when he knew he missed layups at times).

First of all, who the hell is Primoz Brezec, and 2nd of all, Hibbert was traded to the Lakers, so he currently is no longer a "Current Pacers star", he is now a "Current Lakers star"

You can tell this quiz is old when the clue for Roy Hibbert is "Current Pacers star." Also, the clue for Shawn Bradley is just perfect.
