Šarūnas Marčiulionis

Maybe your thinking of Petrovic.

Drazen!
Good guess!

But wrong . . .

Okay, some hints:

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.

2. Invincible Carter
3. Super John Williamson!
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).
