Time isn't out yet! Here are ways to earn points so far:
- Trading cards I need from Swisher and Cano sets earns you 1/2 a point per card!!!
- Answering these questions gives you 1 point for every answer!
- 2 Points if you discover a player we left out in a Trivia question (Night Owl did it once)
So, today's question is basketball related, but I let it slide because this guy also played baseball, and, this is the "Trivia Corner" and isn't necessarily the Baseball Corner anymore. So, here is your question:Michael Jordan, often considered the best basketball player ever to play the game, was recently inducted into the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame a few weekends ago. This superstar is one of only 7 players to have won the trifecta (Collegiate Championship, NBA Championship, and Olympic Gold Medal) in their careers, who are the others?
Hint Baseball Fans: 5 out of these 6 guys are in the Basketball Hall of Fame, and only 1 of them is played for the famous dream team (1992), other than MJ. Good luck
1: Michael Jordan, 1982 NCAA Champion, 1991; 1992; 1993; 1996; 1997; 1998 NBA Championships, 1984+1992 Olympic Gold Medals.
2: Magic Johnson, 1979 NCAA Champion, 1980; 1982; 1985; 1987; 1988 NBA Championships, Dream Team 1992 Olympic Gold Medal
3: Bill Russell, 1955 & 1956 NCAA Champion, 1957; 1959; 1960; 1961; 1962; 1963; 1964; 1965; 1966; 1968; 1969 NBA Championships (Yes, 11), 1956 Gold Men's Basketball Medal
4: Jerry Lucas, 1959; 1960; 1961 NCAA Champion, 1973; 1974 NBA Championships, 1960 Olympic Gold Medal
5: K.C. Jones, NCAA Champion, 1959; 1960; 1961; 1962; 1963; 1964; 1965; 1966 NBA Championships, 1956 Olympic Gold Men's Basketball Medal
6: Quinn Buckner, 1976 NCAA Champion, 1984 NBA Championship, 1976 Olympic Gold Medal
7: Clyde Lovellette, 1952 NCAA Champion, 1954, 1963, 1964 NBA Champion, 1952 Olympic Gold Medal
*UPDATE,1 MORE!!! Don has gotten 4 Points total on this question, and Duane came up with a great idea to include this as a bonus, which 3 of these players won a high school championship, college championship, NBA Championship, and an Olympic Medal?
Remember the rules, only 1 answer at a time unless we need help and I let you know that you can answer multiple players. Give everyone time to answer questions, so everything is fair. +1 points for each player you name remember! See Ya, and Good luck!
umm Magic JohnsonReplyDelete
I know Bill Russell did it (let's go Celtics). Gimme a point!ReplyDelete
I will get the easiest one (for me) out of the way first: Magic Johnson 79NCAA, Dream Team, numerous NBA titles.ReplyDelete
I will guess on Oscar Robertson, Bill Russell, and Pat Riley.
since some of the names have been thrown around now...I've always knew the even tougher feat----which of the these also won a HS championship as well? there are 3 of themReplyDelete
Some more guesses, Jerry Lucas, KC Jones, Quinn BucknerReplyDelete
Yeah, true, nice question, that can be a bonus but I'll let you knowReplyDelete
Did Bill Russell win a HS championship? I don't know if that's a second guess or a follow up to my first...but I could see Bill pulling that off tooReplyDelete
Clyde Lovette is the final answer.....and Bill Russell is not one of the 3.ReplyDelete
