bacon sports triviaIt’s Friday so we are back with another edition of sports trivia questions for all you degenerates out there. This week we added some new wrinkles to try and keep it interesting. This is an evolving segment so hopefully it’ll only get better as the time goes on. This weeks trivia is a little NBA heavy and I give it a 6 out of 10 for difficulty.

Where’d they go to college – 2005 NBA Draft:

  1. Andrew Bogut
  2. Martell Webster
  3. Ike Diogu
  4. Rashad McCants
  5. Joey Graham
  6. Danny Granger
  7. Nate Robinson
  8. Ronny Turiaf
  9. Brandon Bass
  10. David Lee

*Side note: I never realized how many High School players went in the second round and area actually still in the league and/or doing decent: CJ Miles, Monta Ellis, Lou Williams, Andray Blatche, Amir Johnson.

Where’d they go to college – 2005 NFL Draft:

  1. Pacman Jones

  5. Heath Miller
  6. Justin Tuck
  7. Marion Barber III
  8. Derek Anderson

  10. Matt Cassel

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

  1. I was drafted straight out of High School, won both an NBA MVP and Defensive Player of the Year award, and I recently snubbed Ray Allen when he tried to say Hi before a game.
  2. I’m cousins with Vince Carter and I’ve never played in the second round of the NBA playoffs.
  3. Alongside Deron Williams and Luther Head I was the third guard that played basketball at the University of Illinois with them.
  4. I’m the fourth highest paid player on the Miami Heat this year. I played college ball with Teddy Dupay.
  5. I’m a four time NBA Defensive Player of the Year, I’ve won one NBA Championship, I went to Virginia Union University, and I’m a career 41% free throw shooter.
  6. This is the back of a 1990 Skybox Basketball card for which player? Rex Chapman skybox card
  7. Who’s jersey is this Hoopster rocking? This player went to the University of Arizona.

I’ll give you the answers to all these questions after this unreal video of Utah Jazz Redwood Tree Mark Eaton blocking a Kevin Johnson shot without even jumping. This might be more impressive than Mike Trout’s catch earlier this year.

 Where’d they go to college – 2005 NBA Draft:

  1. Andrew Bogut – Utah Utes
  2. Martell Webster – straight from High School
  3. Ike Diogu – Arizona State Sun Devils
  4. Rashad McCants – North Carolina Tar Heels
  5. Joey Graham – Oklahoma State Cowboys
  6. Danny Granger – New Mexico Lobos
  7. Nate Robinson – Washington Huskies
  8. Ronny Turiaf – Gonzaga Bulldogs
  9. Brandon Bass – LSU Tigers
  10. David Lee – Florida Gators

Where’d they go to college – 2005 NFL Draft:

  1. Pacman Jones – West Virginia Mountaineers
  2. DeMarcus Ware – Troy Trojans
  3. Shawne Merriman – Maryland Terapins
  4. Roddy White – UAB Blazers
  5. Heath Miller – Virginia Cavaliers
  6. Justin Tuck – Notre Dame Fighting Irish
  7. Marion Barber III – Minnesota Golden Gophers
  8. Derek Anderson – Oregon St Beavers
  9. Ryan Fitzpatrick – Harvard Crimson
  10. Matt Cassel – USC Trojans

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

  1. I am the Boston Celtics Kevin Garnett
  2. I am Tracy McGrady.
  3. I am Dee Brown. He was pretty sweet in college.
  4. I am the Miami Heat’s Mike Miller. He is one of the leaders in “laying on the floor next to the bench because your back hurts”.
  5. I am Ben Wallace. I truly believe that I am a better free throw shooter than him and would put $100 on the line to back it up. Yes he was a professional basketball player but 41% is beyond awful. Lets say the he just got nervous/tired because of being in the game and that’s what caused the horrible percentage. Even if we were to double his percentage in a non-game situation with no pressure I’d still have a fighters chance if he nailed 82 out of 100.
  6. This is the back of a 1990 Skybox Basketball card for which player? My man Rex Chapman.

  7. I am Mike Bibby.

So how’d you do? Are these questions too easy, too hard, or just about right? Put your feedback in the comments section or post them on our Facebook wall. I’d love to hear them so that I can tailor it to what you like and make this better.
