The 'Carry on my Hayward son' quiz

It's been less than a month since the Golden State Warriors won their second title in three seasons, and in that time, the NBA hasn't slowed down one bit. 

Chris Paul and James Harden formed a super duo down in Houston, while Russ and Paul George did the same in OKC, even if it's just for one season. The Wolves shipped Ricky Rubio out to Utah then reunited Jimmy Butler and Thibs in Minnesota. Steph and Blake finally got their big paydays, and not-quite-superstar players like J.J. Redick, Jeff Teague and George Hill all found new homes. But the one move that might have the most impact on next season went down on Wednesday, as Gordon Hayward left Salt Lake City to take his talents to Boston and play for his old college coach Brad Stevens.

Sure, CP3, Butler and George might be better players than Hayward, but with the latter two making the move out west, the Western Conference is as stacked as it's ever been. Conversely, the Eastern Conference is literally a joke right now, and adding Hayward to the #1 seed should give the Celtics a real chance to beat LeBron and the Cavs and head to the NBA Finals. There they would likely be slaughtered by the Warriors, but hey...baby steps. 

Which brings us to today's quiz of the day. There is a case to be made that Gordon Hayward was the best Jazz player ever not named Malone or Stockton. Top 10 in career scoring, assists, steals and three-pointers made in just seven seasons. But if Hayward wants to crack the same list in Boston, he's going to have to put in some work. The Boston Celtics have a long and storied history, in which many Hall of Famers have donned the iconic green and white uniform. How many of the C's 25 career leading scorers can you name in six minutes?

Good luck!
