The latest NBA Immaculate Grid is here on Sunday, October 1. It is another chance for NBA fans to take on the challenge. October 1's Immaculate Grid features players from the Chicago Bulls, Miami Heat, New York Knicks and more. Let’s take a look at the answers for the Immaculate Grid on October 1.
The rules are the same. You must find a player who fits both categories. For instance, an NBA player who played for both the Knicks and Bulls.
Let’s start with Grid 1. The first box features the aforementioned Knicks and Bulls crossover. Possible answers include Derrick Rose and Taj Gibson.

According to basketball reference, 59 players have been on both the Knicks and Bulls during their careers. Some other notable names include Bill Cartwright, Eddy Curry, Justin Holiday, Joakim Noah and Jalen Rose.
Moving on to Grid 2, you need a player who played for the Knicks and the Miami Heat. A popular choice could be Amare Stoudemire or Michael Beasley.
There are 29 players who have donned both jerseys. Eddy Curry works in this square as well. Other possible answers include the golden arm of Wayne Ellington or Eddie House.

Here are the answers for the rest of the Immaculate Grid. In Grid 3, you need a former Knick who averaged five assists per game for a season. Walt ‘Clyde the Glide’ Frazier is a throwback option here.

A more modern choice would be Andre Iguodala. He won a Finals MVP in Golden State and had a brief stop with the Heat.
In Grid 6, we need a former Warrior who averaged more than five assists per game in a season. The main answer here is obvious.
Steph Curry is the greatest shooter of all time but has dished out plenty of assists as well. He averaged, at least, 5.0 apg in every single season of his career.
In the final row, we need a former Toronto Raptor for each. In Grid 7, we need a Raptor/Bull combo.
You could go with Antonio Davis or D.J. Augustin. Mike James and Jalen Rose would work as well.
Let’s move on to Grid 8, where we need a Raptor and Heat crossover. The obvious choice is Chris Bosh, who left Toronto to form the Big 3 in Miami.
You could also go with lesser known options to bump up the rarity score. Precious Achiuwa is a current player who fits the box.
