Test Your Knowledge of Basketball and Win a Warner Brothers NBA DVD!

Holiday shopping season is just around the corner, but you don't have to stand in line and fight the crowds to find the perfect gift for that NBA fan on your shopping list. Thanks to Warner Brothers Entertainment Group, I will award a total of four NBA DVDs to the winner(s) of the 20SecondTimeout Trivia Contest. Here are the four questions--be sure to read the Contest Rules listed below:

1) Who is the youngest player to win an NBA or ABA scoring title?

2) Who scored the most points in the NBA in the 1980s?

3) Which player holds the record for most points scored in his first road playoff game?

4) Which active NBA player has the most career 40-point games?

Hint: All four answers can be found somewhere in 20 Second Timeout.

Prizes (the front covers of each of these DVDs appear in this post):
  1. Miami Heat 2005-2006 Champions Special Edition
  2. Greatest Moments in NBA History
  3. Houston Rockets 1994 Champions: Clutch City
  4. Detroit Pistons 1989 Champions: Motor City Madness
Contest Rules:

1) Answers must be posted in the "comments" section of this post.

2) To win, your answer must include one of the following: your real name, your email address or the name of your blog/website (I can't mail a DVD to "anonymous").

3) Answers must include the question number followed by your answer.

4) The first person to post a correct answer to any question wins the DVD of his/her choice; the second person to post a correct answer to any of the remaining three questions can choose from the three remaining DVDs, etc. If you are the first to answer all four questions correctly, then you win all four DVDs.

5) Contest winners' names will be announced in the "comments" section of this post and in a separate, new post on 20 Second Timeout's main page; the contest winners will also be contacted via the email address or website information that they provide.

6) You don't have to list your DVD preference in your answer; if you win, I will let you know which choices remain when I contact you.


These four DVDs--plus DVDs about the NFL, NHL and college football--can be purchased at the Warner Brothers website:

For Question 3, you didn't specify which league. If you count ABA, then my answer is:

Julius Erving

P. Talib/"Illest," congratulations! You correctly answered all four questions and have won all four DVDs. I will email you to get your mailing address.

Vednam, perhaps in the interest of clarity I should have indicated which league I meant regarding question three; without such specification, however, the default assumption is that only the NBA is being included in the discussion.

Julius Erving's 53 point game against the Floridians is quite a remarkable performance, though.
