Chet-mania has made its way to the NBA.
Chet Holmgren, the No. 2 pick in last month’s NBA Draft, made his Summer League debut on Tuesday night, and it was an impressive performance, to say the least. The 20-year-old phenom, who may or may not still be growing, filled up the stat sheet to the tune of 23 points, seven boards, four assists, four threes and six blocks against the Utah Jazz. He even pulled off a spot-on Dirk Nowitzki impression for good measure. And sure, while Holmgren looked phenomenal, it’s hard to get too excited about a Summer League game in July, but if you’re an OKC fan, it’s also not preposterous to think that the franchise’s darkest days are behind it and the team’s future is as bright as any other’s in the Association.
Which brings us to today’s quiz of the day. Since the introduction of the NBA three-point line during the 1979-80 season, 29 NBA players have averaged 20 points or more per game in their rookie seasons, with Chet hoping to become No. 30. So with that in mind, how many of the 29 can you name in five minutes?
