Answers to the Sept. 24 NBA Crossover Grid
Darko Milicic is a good answer for Cell 1, as he was selected second overall by the Pistons in the 2003 draft and won the NBA title in his rookie year. He was last in the NBA with the Celtics, playing one game in 2012.
Better answers, though, are Rasheed Wallace and, more recently, Blake Griffin. Wallace was with the Pistons from 2004 to 2009 and won one title, and one season for the Celtics (2009-10). Griffin, meanwhile, played four years in Detroit (2018-2021) and played last year with the Celtics.
For Cell 2, Nate Robinson is a go. The 5-foot-9 leaper played two seasons with the Cs (2009-2011) and four games for OKC before being left out of the rotation and waived after.
An alternate, though, is Al Horford, who's still with the Celtics but played a season with the Thunder (2020-2021).
For Cell 3, there are lot to choose from, as the Celtics are steady feeders of All-NBA Team members. Shaquille O’Neal is one. He played his final year with the Celtics in the 2010-11 season and ended his career with eight All-NBA First Team selections.
Serbian Boban Marjanovic is a solid answer for Cell 4, having played for the Spurs (2015-16) and Pistons (2016-2018). Other answers to consider include Dennis Rodman, Tracy McGrady, Antonio McDyess, Sean Elliott and Beno Udrih.
For Cell 5, Isaiah Roby is a fit. He played his first three years in the Association with the Thunder before moving to the Spurs last season.
Others who make the cut are Doug McDermott and Kevin Martin as well as Avery Johnson and Dale Ellis, who played for the Seattle Supersonics, the precursor of the Thunder team.
The Spurs are another team that have many All-NBA members for Cell 6. Tony Parker is among the standouts, having a Hall-of-Fame career in 17 years in San Antonio, winning four titles and four All-NBA selections.
For Cell 7, Isaiah Livers is one of the more recent Pistons selected in the second round of the draft.
He was selected 42nd overall in 2021. An excellent answer, though, is Rodman, who was the second-round pick in 1986. He played with the Pistons for seven seasons and helped them to two titles.
Aaron Wiggins makes the cut for Cell 8. He was selected in the second round and 55th overall in 2021 by OKC.
For Cell 9, Rodman is a great answer. A second-round pick, he became a legend in Detroit and Chicago, ending his career with four All-NBA selections.
Two-time NBA MVP Nikola Jokic is another top choice for this cell. He was selected first in the second round in 2014 and has had five All-NBA selections since.
