Ok heres the anwer. Rodman wore 10 for Spurs and Pistons. but in chicago 10 was retired. so he chose 91.... 9 + 1 = 10. same with lakers 7 + 3. do you guys have any interesting facts????

Eddie House (from the Boston Celtics) dropped 61 points in one game (college). 2nd highest record (Lew Alcindor aka Kareem Abdul-Jabbar has the highest) in Pac-10 history.

i'm pretty sure he wore 73 because at the time he joined the lakers he was first team all defense 7 times and also had 3 rings??

is that right?

DrDEADalready
06-26-2008, 04:53 PM
^^^ i dont know for sure on that. if that true. its weird that it ended up to equal 10. but thats cool if that ones true... yeah the one i know for sure was the bulls one. because i wikipedia him. and thats what he said. so i figured on the 73 because it didnt say anything. oh wait no he has more than three titles. he one With the Pistons he has 6 or 7 titles

Incublime24
06-26-2008, 04:59 PM
i guess thats probably not right since he had more than 3 championships at the time...i dont know why i thought that.

Didn't some other player do that where their number had to do with the number of awards/championships they won??

3PT FG One season Record goes to Orlando Magic Dennis Scott 267 in 95-96 but Allen beat that with 269 in 05-06 still a good trivia question, He also held the most 3pt fg in one game record with 11 untill kobe beat that with 12
