Inspired by the movie line and video game trivia threads, I thought I'd start a basketball trivia thread.

To kick things off, a two parter:

1A) How many former Celtics were on the NBA's Top 50 at 50 list? 1B)Name them?

"Let me call him," Floyd said.

The man shook his head. "O.J. doesn't give out his cell," he said. "He'll call you."

Sorry, I know spelling's not the #1 priority on this board, especially when you're typing down 12 names; but Parish with two r's is just a pet peeve of mine.

I know, I have a problem.

I'm with you.  I have no idea either.  I just know 'Nique wasn't on the list.  First name that came to my mind was McAdoo, but I didn't think he was on the list.  And when I checked, I was right.  He's not on it.

Who was the original retired #18 (not Cowens) and what Pac-10 school did he attend prior to his NBA career?
