About This Quiz

For many people, the NBA is a recent phenomenon. They watch a few games a year and know some of the highlights of the current players, but they don’t know anything about those players’ college history.
It takes a lot of skill to play professional basketball in the National Basketball Association. It takes even more skill to play for one of the 30 NBA teams. And it takes a lot of dedication to play for an entire season.
The NBA has a long history of players who didn’t come from the most prominent institutions of higher learning. But how much does that matter? A lot of future Hall of Famers and All-Stars got their start at small or unknown schools, and since the league has added more teams, the chances are better than ever to develop a new star from a lesser-known college program. The NBA is full of college basketball stars who became superstars on the professional level. But how well do you remember those star players’ college days?

If you’re like most basketball fans, you’re pretty good with some players, but there are definitely some names you’d be surprised to learn played in the college ranks. There are many reasons why people love the NBA as a sport. First, there is the speed, grace, and athleticism of the players, and then there is the drama. You can win or lose a game on a single play, and it’s not only the action on the field that makes the NBA what it is. Behind the scenes, there is a lot of passion from the fans and the players.
NBA players and teams are more accessible than ever to anyone with an Internet connection, but knowing the ins and outs of their personal lives isn’t enough to make you a true fan. To become a superfan, you have to know more than just the basics of their basketball history. So, ask yourself this. Do you know which player left college because he couldn’t get a degree? Do you know which team has never drafted a player from the University of North Carolina? If you know the answers to these questions, then you are a true NBA fan! Take our special quiz about the college times of our NBA Stars and show us the great sports fan you are. Good luck!
