Maybe it’s because I’m an ’80s kid. Maybe it’s because I spent my childhood watching cartoons and playing video games rather than playing basketball.
But my mind is partially blown that the majority of the Portland Trail Blazers roster can’t name all four members of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
Leonardo. Michelangelo. Donatello. Raphael.
Those names are tattooed on my brain. They were part of morning ritual. They were routine.
To recap, those who nailed it:
- Mo Williams, #25
- Robin Lopez, #42 — Wins for naming them the quickest
- Wesley Matthews, #2 — Props for admitting to dressing up as the Turtles for Halloween. I did the same.
Those who did not:
- Will Barton, #5
- LaMarcus Aldridge, #12
- Damian Lillard, #0
- Joel Freeland, #19
- Victor Claver, #18
- C.J. McCollum #3
- Meyers Leonard, #11
- Terry Stotts, head coach
