Re: Sports Talk (Reverse) Sheep: It's Sheeptime! (NBA Sheep)

I remember Olawakandi getting a ton of hype towards the end of the 98 college season. That was my senior year in high school and I specifically remember hyping him up big-time to some of my classmates pre-draft. Thankfully, I graduated and never saw those guys again, so I didn't have to hear about it after the fact.

Olowokandi only had one good half year in 2000 or 2001. I forget which year but he put together a string of decent games.

The only other thing I remember is that he got tased while he was being arrested.

If someone would have just picked the most sheepish question on almost all these reverses they either would have ended up with a unique each time or a +2. Obscure and median answers did much worse.

Not a great picture but it's enough to bring back memories:

and Dirk and Pierce went 9-10.

Other than Walton and Wedman, I wasn't sure which scrubs had actually started. So I went middle mediocre ground with McHale. Too bad too since I could have named almost all those guys. I just didn't tailor the question to myself well enough.

23. R: Name a player who started at least 60 games for the Houston Rockets during their championship run of 1993-1994 through 1994-1995

Last question! My original list had 22 questions, but an NBA game that ends on #22? I don't think so!

I can catch him if I get the only unique and he scores +3.

Clippers had enough 3s and 4s. It's all they ever seem to draft.

I'm sure I matched other Lakers fans on this one.

This is going to be one of those fucked up questions where no one answered Hakeem, isn't it?

Alright, I have to bail at this point. If I win, thanks David for a great game. I eagerly look forward to your next, hopefully less Laker centric, NBA game.

If I lose, then you and all your reverses can burn in hell.

Hakeem has gone unanswered two or three times this game. Will it happen again?

I thought he had, and for some reason when I looked it up after submitting, I thought I confirmed that he had.
