    4. Since 1980, the Philadelphia 76ers and the Dallas Mavericks have each done something just once; no other NBA team can make this claim. What is it?

    The 6ers lost a charity match to a team of 10-year-old girls The Mavericks lost a playoff series to the Warriors, which is pretty much the same thing.

    17. Aside for the fact that they are foreign-born players, what do Australian native Andrew Bogut, Italian native Andrea Bargnani and Nigerian native Michael Olowokandi all have in common?

    None of them will play one fully healthy game for the Warriors.Report

    Rtod, you may wish to include a sentence or two like the following prior to the cut in your delightful post:

    Given that it’s more than possible for multiple people to know the answers to these questions, please rot13 your answer. That’s a simple encryption that will allow the folks who want to answer these questions “fresh” to do so and also allow people who want to peek (or argue!) your answers to do so as well.Report
