About This Quiz

The origins of the current NBA go back to the formation of leagues in the '40s, the decade-long dominance of the Celtics in the '60s, the merger of the ABA in the '70s and a host of rivalries in between. The professional basketball league has produced a plethora of exciting players who are as unique as their style of play. With nicknames like Iceman, Big Baby, Pistol and Birdman, the NBA has a laundry list of players who have shaped the league with unique personalities both on and off the court. Some players are known for their outward appearance and skill to trash talk on the court. Others are perfectly content to let their play on the court dictate opinions from the public. 

With the advent of social media and the internet, personalities such as those in the NBA become magnified by a player's interaction with fans and media. Before the frenzy of online status elevation, the NBA relied on a player's ability to display personality on the court. The TV was the main source of exposure and some players took full advantage to promote their brand. Players like Allen Iverson, who was never lacking in confidence on or off the court, used post-game interviews to promote his style and create humorous anecdotes. Hit the court and ball out on this quiz and we'll try and guess which unique NBA legend you are!
