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

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?

Hey, I did the same thing except from 88-92 or so.  And I put mine in order in those books of laminated sleeves, too.  I've got to sell those some day, the early sets before they jacked up production are probably worth a bit of change.

On the radio it was Laetner. It seems Mike Miller hasn't played an all-star game yet. It seems Googs is also right. The only thing I can think of is if maybe Googs was some sort of injury replacement, so they aren't counting him, but more than likely the radio just got it wrong

If its WEEI, then its almost certainly a case of them getting it wrong.

Because nobody seems to be asking the next question, here is a tricky one.

Among those players who have never averaged more than 10 points per game in a single season, who has made the most 3-pointers in his career ?

Another question:

Of the NBA coaches who have coached over 1000 games, who has the fourth best winning percentage (I think you can figure out the top 3 pretty easily)?

No. He had a pretty bad winning percentage. He's 13th in this list.
