Šarūnas Marčiulionis

Maybe your thinking of Petrovic.

Drazen!
Good guess!

But wrong . . .

Okay, some hints:

one guy has a strong Knick connection

another was a NET both ABA & NBA

the third guy you won't guess even if I give you his initials . . .

Ah.  Was thinking John Williamson (ABA and NBA)

I remember Deron Williams having a huge game once.

1. Marbury
2. Invincible Carter
3. Super John Williamson!
4.
5.


SuperJohn was a fun player.  A super gunner.
I was at one early NBA Nets game (at the then new Rutgers Athletic Center) and Super John hit a long fadeaway J while falling into the Nets bench.  Crazy.  And there wasn't a 3 point shot then ...

Deron a good guess.
I'm sort of surprised he didn't.
I'll have to check on that.

Two more .  .  .

My mistake.
6 Nets scored 50 or more.
Deron did it.  A 57 point game in his 2nd Net season.
Kyrie was the 7th Net to half-century it.

1. Marbury
2. Invincible Carter
3. Super John Williamson!
4. Deron Williams

5. _________ has a Knick connection

6. _________ I'll give you his initials after a while . . .

These are the hard ones ...

One is an ex-Knick who only played 1 year with the Nets.

The other played 2 seasons Netside.
His initials are MN.

4. Deron Williams
5. MIKE NEWLIN

Newlin was a good shooter, sort of the Joe Harris of his day.
Played mostly for HOU in the 70's,  Finished his career with two Net seasons and a final Knick year.  Very difficult to guess.

and still one more
6. _________ has a strong Knick connection.

Actually I didn't even recall that he played with the Nets at all (just one season there, in which he dropped a 50 game).

I came in here to note that Shump signed with BKY.
They could use more defense at the G spot.

I didn't realize Shump was out of the League.  Just 29, but trouble staying healthy.

Is there anywhere that lists the players who drop out of the league?
(retirees, exiles to int'land, FA's never picked up)


Didn't realize I left this Trivia Q hanging.

There's one more Net who scored 50 or more points.
In fact, 52 points in April 1982.
A former Knick.

The list of all 7 Nets who scored 50 or more is here

NBA TV ratings down double-figures
« Reply #28 on: February 19, 2020, 01:08:40 PM »

Quote
11 teams can’t even get a 1.00 rating locally, including both New York teams (0.85 for the Knicks on MSG and 0.45, the league’s third-lowest mark, for the Nets on YES)

Nets stand to have the biggest increase next season with a healthy squad.
