I've got it:
It's the Kings. But back then they were
the Rochester Royals. 1950-51 season.

Here's one I heard on the radio today

The question was how many American born white players drafted since 1990 have made the all star team?

The follow up question was to name the player(s).

While I was trying to figure out the first one I figured out the second one and rather quickly too.

Here's a hint. He's not Scala.

Wally was born in Spain and Brad Miller wasn't drafted.  Those were the other two, I had thought of.

Just saw this thread - here's a fun and difficult question:

What is the record for most games played in a regular season, and who has it? 

Just to get it out of the way the answer is not "82 shared by 2000 guys".

I am pretty sure they said just Laettner on the radio (I heard it too...it was Meter on the WEEI morning show I believe), but that is clearly wrong, since I am sure Googs was an All Star.

I know Tyrone Corbin played 84 games in a season.  Not sure if that's the record though.

Googs was definitely an all-star, definitely drafted and definitely born in the U.S., so Meter is (once again) wrong.

Corbin did play 84, but that's not the record.  TP just for knowing that off the top of your head though.

I have a whole bunch of useless information thanks to collecting basketball cards as a kid.  I can pretty much tell you the height of any guy that played between 90-93, according to either Skybox or Upper Deck.  Pathetic?  Yes.  Depressing?  Yes.  Wait, where was I going with this?

Nice!  That is in fact the record.  TP for you.
