Layups: Name the Team Scoring Leaders of the 2000s

Posted by Neil Paine on November 10, 2009

From Sporcle, here's a great quiz about the decade that was the Oughts (1999-2000 thru 2008-09): Can you name each team's top 5 scorers during the 2000s?

    Time is definitely a factor in this one. I spent way too much of it trying to figure out the Hornet's #1.

  2. Neil Paine Says:

    Also, being a Celtics fan I stubbornly wasted time trying to get their #5 guy, but I never could come up with the name. I was like Antoine Walker in his prime, misfiring and misfiring when I should have given up a long time ago. Or maybe Antoine Walker at a casino. One of the two.

    (Yes, I still regularly take cheap shots at Employee No. 8. Wanna fight about it?)

  3. JayOh Says:

    Haha, employee #8. Quite the throwback:

    Time definitely wasn't on my side for that one.

    No, I found that one funny!

    I liked this quiz alot because it really grilled me for not following the NBA since the Knicks meltdown. Thanks to the hyperlinks to the players I didn´t guess, I´m quickly picking up where I left off. Thanks for the link.

  5. Neil Paine Says:

    Which Knicks meltdown? Game 7 vs. Houston? The Layden era? The Isiah era? There are so many to choose from, you're going to have to be more specific! :)

  6. Mike G Says:

    I could not think of the Mavs' #2, Michael Finley. More than half of others could not, as well.
    Managed to get 125.

    I also did one for the 90s which haven't been nearly as popular as this one..

  8. Mike G Says:

    Did better on the '90s quiz -- 124 of 145. Missed Iverson, Van Exel...
