good job psileas! this is one of my litmus test questions to sift through the folks with some knowledge o f the nba and the pretenders
so--- you set the bar----->> if a person can name four people on the sonic 1979 championship team, you are NOT a pretender. (hardcore sonic fans should name 10 of the 12 however)
since none have been named to that GOAT team, it goes to show you how great a TEAM
the sonics were in 79 to win it all. no superstars but knew how to play together and win it all over unseld and hayes et al
