Default Who are we? QUIZ

We are the only 4 basketball players to do this this special team-related feat covering both college and pros
Who are we and what is the feat?


We are all associated with California.

One of us was a national celebrity before playing an NBA game.

We had team success early in our NBA career--two of us were major factors in the team's success, two of us less so

All four of us were associated with basketball dynasties. For one of us that dynasty was in college, even though we played for one the NBA's most celebrated teams.

Two of us are all-time greats.

One of us is less famous than his son and his brother who pitched on World Series winning team.

The least famous of us was a member of one the greatest teams of all time and and won two championships in Israel after the NBA and if you heard the name you might think of one the most famous home runs of all time. Also my pro team and what we accomplished was mentioned on an old Red Hot Chili Peppers song before they broke it big. I'm not mentioned on the song, but 5 of my teammates are

Another clue, the son of one of the four was on one of the most high-profile teams this past season.

OK. One of the four is Henry Bibby.

He played at UCLA in college and is the father of Mike Bibby and the brother of Jim Bibby who pitched for the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Yup.

Billy Thompson and Henry Bibby are two of the four. The other two are all-time greats.

What is the feat? team-related.

Another clue. The feat relates to being happy at the end of the season. (Also Hall of Fame Rules apply is another slightly cryptic clue.)

You are correct, Sir. They are the only four to do it.


It was hard to write that as a quiz without giving it away.
