A Little Quiz 

Post#1 » by Curmudgeon » Sun Oct 18, 2020 6:10 pm

It's just one month until the NBA draft and I'm getting bored. So here's a little quiz.

There are roughly 75 father-son duos in the NBA (80 if you count fathers who played in the ABA). But only one family has three generations of NBA players. Without looking it up, who was the grandfather, and can you name at least one of the three NBA teams he played for? Hint: all of those franchises are now defunct.

Does it count if the grandfather was a grandfather in law? If so, Google makes this easy, I won't spoil.

There are apparently five ex-NBA players who have had/seen their grandchildren also play in the NBA. Their grandchildren include Marvin Bagley, Shavlik Randolph, and Eric Montross.

Well sure. Google makes lots of things easy.

So (again without looking it up) name the former Celtics player whose father played in the ABA.

Kevin Love is Neil Johnston’s grandson?

No, but Kevin's father, Stan Love, played in the NBA.

OK, without looking it up, wild assed guess based on 10 seconds of thought: Scot Pollard ??

Never mind. I just looked it up. It's not Pollard.

Knew the Celtic players' father played ball, didn't know he played in the ABA.

Hint on the second question: the son's nickname begins with "Z".
