    No player in the history of the NBA has ever started 70 or more games in a season while getting only 15 mpg (or less)

    He has started 34 of 34 games so far at exactly 15 mpg. He might make it!

    So, for trivia buffs

    Trivia #1

    Only two players have started 70 or more games at less than 16 mpg. You all know them and have seen them play.

    Hint
    Both are centers who did it in the last 20 years

    Nicknames Hint
    one of them had two nicknames (Vanilla Gorilla, Ghostface)

    Answer
    Jim McIlvaine and Joel Pryzbilla


    Trivia #2

    Only two more players have achieved it with 60 or more games. Slightly more obscure, although one was just 10 yrs ago.

    Hint
    PF for Utah in 1988
    PG for Atl in 2006 nickname (Cheese)

    Answer
    Marc Ivaroni and Royal Ivey
