GAME: Who am I?

Something me and my basketball nerd friends do a lot, thought it might be fun to do online.

Post five "clues" (not too obscure, but not too obvious either) about a player, then others try to guess who it is. Of course this is online, so we're gonna have to go on the honor system and hope people don't cheat

I'll start:

A) - I was drafted in the top 10 in 1985

B) - I played on four teams during my 16 year career

C) - I was a three time all-star, a two time 6th Man of the Year and a one time All-NBA selection

D) - I retired in 2001 with 15,000+ Points, 7,000+ rebounds and just under 4,000 assists. One other notable achievement I had was a 51.4% 3-point shooting % during the 1994//1995 season, 1% behind the leader, though I actually made more than he did

E) - I lost to Michael Jordan & the Bulls in an NBA Finals


Who am I?

E: Has only made the playoffs once since winning coach of the year.

This one I think might be a bit tougher:

A) - I was a top 20 pick in the 1995 draft

B) - I won an NCAA Championship while playing for an SEC team that is primarily known for it's football teams

C) - I'm a 1 time NBA champion

D) - I played for four teams over my 12 year NBA career (I started and finished my career with the same team)

E) - I was a one time 6th man of the year (my only major award other than my title) and finished my career with over 9,100 points and 3,100 rebounds

Mine was Glenn Robinson

Went to high school with his son, who's tearing it up at UM, so it seemed like a good choice.

Corliss Williamson is correct sir.

Hoping this one might be a bit more of a challenge, but ya'll are pretty smart so far so who knows :

A) - I was a first round pick in 2005 from an SEC school

B) - I'm considered one of the better Power Forwards in the league despite not really being a household name

C) - I'm a one time All-Star and also won a Rookie Challenge MVP

D) - I recently became the first player since Kareem Abdul-Jabbar in 1976 to post a 35/20/10 stat line

E) - In 2007, I appeared on an NBA Charity Episode of Family Feud

David Lee, pretty easy one with the Kareem stat

Let's see how we go this time since my last one was far too easy

A) A top 10 pick in 1991 out of Georgia Tech

B) Played for 9 different franchises

C) Was traded to the Raptors but didn't want to play in Canada and thus the Raptors were forced to move him on without playing a game.

D) 1x Eastern All Star

E) His ex-wife was on Basketball wives, he has 7 children to 5 different women
