I am going with Wesley Snipes, based on 'White man cant jump' he is better than any actual NBA players born on 07/31.

I'm screwed.

I'm relying on Caldwell Jones or Marreese Speights.  Jones never scored 30+ in an NBA game (but dropped 39 in the ABA), and Speights topped out at 32 points, once.

I might have to draft Barack Obama.

Interesting choices for November 21st.

Earl 'the Pearl' Monroe
Cedric 'Cornbread' Maxwell
Reggie Lewis

Also had Larry Sanders who I still think is one of the great 'what could have beens' of this generation.

Lenny Wilkens by a country mile.

In terms of general celebs I do well, but basketball players I've only got Wilkens and Jarrett Jack

Yikes.  I thought I was bad off with Mark Jackson or Norm Van Lier. 

Correction:  Looks like I also have the Lopez brothers.  So it will have to Brook Lopez.

Sue Bird?  (Not NBA, but a professional basketball player all the same ... the WNBA has "NBA" in the title)


I think for NBA guys it's basically Dave Debusschere or Manute Bol.

I get to choose between Blake Griffin and Joel Embiid. I guess I will go with Joel Embiid.

15 minutes later and I am born on the most Celtic holiday of all and would have shared my bday with Danny Ainge and Terry Rozier.

Edit: Just checked. Embiid with 29 games at 30+ points last year. Blake had 21 but did have a 50 point game. Either way I am safe. Heck, if we do rounds I am even alive if a player on my birthday has to score 40 or 50 to save me.

Paul Arizin.  Philly HOF.  1 day earlier and it's John Havlicek.  2.5 hours later and I'd be dead cause Nerlans Noel, Royce White, Bobby Dixon and Kenny Satterfield couldn't score 25 between all 4 combined.

Looks like I'm dead. Rondae Hollis Jefferson or Douggie Mcbuckets…..I guess since this is a scoring thing I should go Doug McDermott. I just have to hope he has a college throw back game.
