We Have a Winner in the 20 Second Timeout/Warner Brothers NBA DVDs Trivia Contest!

P. Talib, a regular 20 Second Timeout visitor who posts comments under the name "Illest," has won the 20 Second Timeout/Warner Brothers NBA DVDs Trivia Contest by correctly answering all four questions. He will receive the following DVDs: Miami Heat 2005-2006 Champions Special Edition, Greatest Moments in NBA History, Houston Rockets 1994 Champions: Clutch City and Detroit Pistons 1989 Champions: Motor City Madness. Here are the questions again, along with the correct answers and the places on 20 Second Timeout where each answer could be found:

1) Who is the youngest player to win an NBA or ABA scoring title? Answer: Spencer Haywood, who was 20 when he won the ABA scoring title in 1970. Bob McAdoo won the first of his three NBA scoring titles at age 22 in 1974. That information can be found in my HoopsHype article about Bob McAdoo, a link to which is posted on the right hand side of 20 Second Timeout:


Note: Max Zaslofsky won the 1947-48 scoring title at the age of 22 and was actually a little younger than McAdoo was when he won the 1974 scoring crown but Zaslofsky accomplished the feat in the Basketball Association of America, which combined with the National Basketball League to form the NBA in 1950.

2) Who scored the most points in the NBA in the 1980s? Answer: Alex English, as noted in my HoopsHype article about the silky smooth Denver Nuggets forward:


3) Which player holds the record for most points scored in his first road playoff game? Answer: LeBron James, as mentioned in this 20 Second Timeout post:


4) Which active NBA player has the most career 40-point games? Answer: "The Answer," Allen Iverson. I examined this topic in a ProBasketballNews.com article titled "Kobe Bryant and Allen Iverson: MoreTop 40 Hits than Anyone on the Billboard charts":

Julius Erving scored 53 points (more than Lebron's 41) in his first road playoff game, when the Virginia Squires took on the Miami Floridians in game 3 of the first round of the 1972 ABA playoffs:

Ok, I saw your commen about Erving's performance in the other post.

That Pistons DVD collection looked good though! I might have to go buy it anyway. I wonder how many more collections like this will be released, where all or most complete playoff games of a team are included. I'd especially like to see series from the 60s and 70s.

I'm not sure how many more sets they plan on releasing.

Keep your eye on 20 Second Timeout, though, because there may be another contest in the works--and perhaps there is a Pistons DVD set in your future.
