Hard sports trivia quiz 11

By December 7, 2012 No Comments

mishAfter a week off “Hard Sports Trivia Questions” (such the unique name, I know) is back to test your sports knowledge. With all the “Who should win the Heisman, Johnny Football or Manti T’eo” talk I figured I’d throw in some Heisman questions on top of our usual NBA and NFL knowledge. I would rank this weeks questions as only a 3.5 out of 10 on the difficulty scale so you should feel good about yourself after this one (opposed to those of you who watched the Cardinals vs Jets game last weekend who most certainly had some sort of self hate thing going on).

Before I get to the questions if any of you have a sports trivia question (or questions) that you think is good/hard please send it over to me (rob@baconsports.com) and I’ll include it in a future post. I want to try and add variety to this and also increase the difficulty level. For doing so I’ll give you a plug to whatever you’d like.

Who am I – NBA and NFL edition? I’ll give you a series of hints to figure out who the player is.

  1. I am a 7 foot center that was the 17th pick in the 1998 NBA draft by the Minnesota Timberwolves. I won an NBA Championship as a member of the San Antonio Spurs. Stephen A. Smith loves saying my name because he thought I was terrible.
  2. I was a number one overall pick, played for five different NBA teams, and was a five time All Star. I won the rookie of the year award in 1993-94 and was once traded for Mitch Richmond and Otis Thorpe.
  3. In 1996 I was traded straight up for Kobe Bryant.
  4. I am the current coach of the Golden State Warriors.
  5. I was the starting quarterback for the Pittsburgh Steelers that got injured and was replaced by rookie Ben Roethlisberger.
  6. I’m 5th All-Time in career rushing yards in the NFL, was a five time Pro Bowler, and won the 2006 NFL MVP award. I only played for two teams in my career.
  7. I am second All-Time in career all purpose yards in the NFL right behind Jerry Rice.
  8. I am the current coach of the Oakland Raiders.

I’ll give you the answers after this sick video showing Tyreke Evans filthy handles.
