An NBA true/false quiz with no question about an All-Star & NBA champion whose nickname was "The Truth"? I would've loved to have seen the question you came up with for that one, QM.

There's not a shred of truth to that claim. The Globetrotters were never in the NBA. Nor were they in the BAA, which was renamed the NBA when it absorbed teams from the NBL. Nor were they ever in the NBL, although some individual Globetrotters played in the NBL during WWII.

Pro tip 1: This is just the sort of thing a smart person would check out before posting something they "heard somewhere". I mean, every single person reading your comment can find out if it's true within seconds. Welcome to the internet.

Pro tip 2: you can delete your own comments

Amazing. I have absolutely no knowledge about the NBA and still managed to get 14/15, just from thinking about the logic behind asking each question. In retrospect, I should have gotten the punch one as well.
