Not an NBA fan, only knew the top two, plus I got one more by guessing common surnames. Quizzed hubby later and he knew them all except bottom two so he obviously reigns supreme in the family when it comes to sports.

So for 42 years, from 1951-1992, the Celtics were never without either Bill Sharman, John Havlicek or Larry Bird....but never more than 1 at a time.

Possibly all three are the same person. Have they ever be seen in the same place?
