Only Adrian Dantley in 1976 and Charles Barkley in '92 have scored 30 points in a game. Who holds the U.S. men's record for most total points scored in one Olympics?
a. Charles Barkley
b. Spencer Haywood
c. Michael Jordan
d. Jerry Lucas
Red and Gold
The last time the U.S. team failed to win the gold was in '88 in Seoul, when the Soviet Union beat the U.S. 82-76 in the semifinals. Which three members of that Soviet squad went on to play in the NBA?
Who Am I?
I never played in the Olympics, but I was on the team that didn't go to the 1980 Moscow Games because of the U.S. boycott. I won an NCAA championship, two NBA titles and played on the '94 U.S. world championship team. I'm in the Basketball Hall of Fame, and I run an NBA team. Can you guess my identity?
