About This Quiz

One of the best things about sports is the competition -- you know, pitting two teams or athletes against each other just gets our blood racing. The uniforms that are worn not only help us differentiate the teams, but the players' numbers (and names) let us know who is who. In a cluster of purple and yellow, it can be hard to determine whether we're looking at LeBron James or Lance Stephenson, but we manage based on the specific ways in which they play. Sports fans can recognize which player is which, even if every other member of their team is wearing the same thing. 

But what if we remove their uniforms and put them in everyday clothing? Would you know some of your favorites then? Because we don't usually see them when they're out and about, they can look like total strangers when they're not in their team colors. In this quiz, we want to test whether you can identify these all-stars when they're on the street instead of the court.
