Interesting NBA Questions You Have Probably Asked
For non-basketball fans, sometimes it's hard to understand the amount of passion that we NBA fans show. We cherish every moment of the game. We not only want to know all the stats and the history. We also want to know what questions are still lingering in the hearts of fans around the world.
Maybe you have asked these questions silently before, maybe these questions cross your mind every time you watch an exciting moment between two NBA superstars.
What is a Rookie Year?
A rookie is a player who has never played in the NBA before. This means that they are usually young, inexperienced and less skilled than other players on their team.
However, a player's rookie year is only considered their first when they're eligible to play in an official NBA game (which varies depending on how old a player was when they entered college).
Who is a Point Guard (PG)
The point guard (PG) typically handles the ball in basketball and is responsible for controlling the flow of the game. Because of this, point guards are often called floor generals or floor managers.
The point guard needs to be able to run an offense efficiently, so they don't need to be as fast as some other players on their team, but they still need to be able to move quickly and effectively when necessary.
Who is Shaquille O’Neal?
If you are a basketball fan, then you know that Shaquille O’Neal is one of the best centers to ever play in the NBA. He was born on March 6, 1972 in Newark, New Jersey and played college basketball at Louisiana State University from 1991–1992.
He was drafted as the first pick by the Orlando Magic in 1992 and led them to an NBA Finals appearance in 1995 before being traded two years later.
He’s also considered one of the tallest players ever to play in the league at 7 feet 1 inch tall (2.16 meters). His shoe size is 22 which gives him a smaller foot-to-body ratio than most people who are 7 feet tall:
his shoe size is only slightly larger than what would be expected if he were 5 feet 11 inches tall.
Who is Michael Jordan?
The greatest basketball player of all time was a shooting guard for the Chicago Bulls and averaged 30.1 points per game throughout his career—more than any other player in the league.
His total number of points scored (32,292) is well over two-and-a-half times that of Wilt Chamberlain's second place ranking (15,837).
As if having such impressive numbers wasn't enough; Jordan also went on to win six NBA championships during his time playing with Chicago Bulls, making him one of only five players who have ever achieved this feat.
Who is Kareem Abdul-Jabbar?
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is the all-time leading scorer in NBA history, with 38,387 points during his 20-year career.
In fact, Kareem held the record for most points scored in an NBA career until Karl Malone overtook him on March 27, 2003 when he passed as an active player. Kobe Bryant has since broken that record and then LeBron James surpassed him (as of May 19th 2018).
Did the Boston Celtics Win Eight Consecutive Titles?
If you're an NBA fan, then you already know how great the Celtics were. From 1959 to 1966, they won eight straight championships and nine total in 10 seasons.
This string of success was unmatched until the Lakers pulled off their own streak from 2000-02. Only two other teams have managed multiple seven-straight championship runs:
The Chicago Bulls won six in a row from 1996-98 and again in '97-98; the Detroit Pistons won three straight titles from 1988-90 and '89-91.
Who is Wilt Chamberlain?
Wilt Chamberlain was a center for the Philadelphia Warriors and the Philadelphia 76ers. He was known as one of the best players in basketball history and is considered one of the greatest scorers to ever play.
He scored 100 points in a single game against New York Knicks, which is one of the most iconic moments in NBA history. It’s also an achievement that hasn’t been matched by any other player since then.
