These basketball legends did it all. They scored baskets, played tough defense, and won championships; but how much do you know about them?
The NBA has always been defined by its players, the stars of the game. These are the faces you remember when you think about the different eras of the NBA; Bill Russell winning with the Celtics, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar dominating in three different decades, Larry Bird going up against Magic Johnson, and the greatness of Michael Jordan. They had the greatest accomplishments by overcoming the fiercest obstacles. They hit game winning shots, carried teams just by their will to win, and put themselves in a class above all other players who had the chance to grace the NBA floor. These are the NBA legends that defined the game for future generations.
Do you really know these players, though? Can you guess them from just a hint? What about the players that were great but didn't make it onto the front page of every sports' magazine? How deep does your NBA fandom go? If you think your knowledge stands up against other basketball historians, take this quiz and show everyone you know all there is to know about NBA legends!
