"Basketball is my favorite sport. I like the way they dribble up and down the court!"
If you're checking out this quiz, that means you're ready to take the shot. While you might think you're a pro when it comes to the NBA, let's find out if you're more professional than these NBA legends!
The National Basketball Association (NBA) was formed over 70 years ago. Since then, the sport has seen some of the most iconic athletes in the world come out of their league. From scoring the most points in a game to the most triple-doubles in one season, this quiz is filled with current and future hall-of-famers.
You can't have a conversation of the NBA greats without mentioning their leading scorers like Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Karl Malone, Kobe Bryant, and Michael Jordan. As many times as the ball bounced off the backboard or rim, there was a good chance it was rebounded by Wilt Chamberlain or Bill Russell. No one's assisted their teams more than John Stockton and Jason Kidd, and if you're not careful, they'll steal the ball and the answers to this quiz from you.
Watching the NBA of today, you'll hear the names of LeBron James, Stephen Curry, Russell Westbrook, and Klay Thompson, young athletes who already hold many records. Although you've been talking about them hearing their names, can you recognize them from their picture? Can you step up to the foul line and sink the questions to this quiz? We'll see you at the final buzzer!
