Layups: Name the All-Time Top 25 in G, Pts, Reb, Ast, Blk, Stl, 3FG, and FT%

Posted by Neil Paine on January 4, 2010

Due to a tremendous amount of holiday-related backlog in my inbox as S-R's User Affairs Coordinator, we'll have to finish up the Inner-Circle Hall of Fame series on Wednesday. I know you're all so disappointed, but in the meantime, go to Sporcle, try to name the career leaders in eight statistical categories, and we'll be back with the 2000s before you know it. :)

    Wow. That was tough. I got 129/200, but there were a bunch of easy ones I missed. I focused too heavily on current players and guys who were big in the 60's/70's/80's. I missed a bunch of easy ones who were big in the 90's and early 00's.

    Man, I sucked. 155/200. Missed a bunch of obvious one.

  3. Mike G Says:

    Erving not top-25 in anything. Nor anyone named Smith.

    Thanks for the publicity, Neil. I've made probably 25 quizzes using this site as my source, so it was pretty awesome when I checked back here to make a new one and it was mentioned on the main page.

    160. Missed some obvious ones as well. How i failed to put in rick barry and AC green, i'll never know.

    Hey, no problem, Luke. I was sure we had used one of your quizzes before this as well. Anytime somebody makes a really tough NBA quiz, I scramble to get a link up to it. :)

    I got about 120 or so. There were a few people from the 90s that I was kind of surprised that made it (or perhaps they deserve the attention) because they were never dominant but played for a long time, consistently at a decent level - kevin willis, blaylock, C. Robinson. dale ellis, Lever, and ratliff to name a few. with that group of 2nd tier core players, I'm a bit disappointed one of my favorites, Horace Grant, didn't make the list [but he's just short of rebounds and games played].
    With improvements to nutrition, conditioning, medicine, no surprise that nearly every player on the games list played in the 1990s [except Havlicek, Silas, KAJ, and Hayes].

    Could not remember Elvin Hayes....

    How could you forget the Big E after this discussion? :)
