Nope never a hornet/pelican

Never an allstar but versatile low FGA role player who played everywhere from 3-5 in his career.

Juwan Howard?


nope, said player never averaged more than 10 points per game, think maybe poor mans Anthony Mason.

No Manu and Crawford never played for the same team

It was Wroten.

18pts, 10 reb, 11 ast against the Rockets on 11/13/13

And one of his rebounds was chasing down a ball that deflected off the rim and was about to go out of bounds with nobody around it anyway and Tony ran up to it and like tip toed his feet on the court to claim the rebound

I just find it funny that Wroten is the one guy who ever achieved that though.

Malcolm Brogdon got one in his 2nd start iirc

I had a feeling that it was some random scrub who did that. Just couldn't recall the name Wroten. :banghead:

This player was drafted by a team that just won an NBA championship, but he never played for them.

He later won an NBA championship with a different team during his second stint with them.


Edit: it's possible there may be more than one. So I'll add more details to my question if no one figures this one out

Draymond Green


Do you remember why we called Jerome James "Karate?"




I was thinking Bruce Bowen for that one though...

My image search reveals that there have been a few unheralded karate masters in the NBA.

This player was drafted in 90s from a Northwest college. He was involved in two three-way trades in his career - pretty big ones. The players involved in his deals combined for over 15 all star appearances. He himself had two.

This player was an up and coming player who got signed & traded for draft picks + some random players after his rookie contract ended. The player himself averaged 19/7 in his best season which is not bad at all, but the draft picks that got traded for him had seven all-star appearances.
