Not Mavericks centric, but the Maverick in this quiz might actually stump you for a minute (until you just start guessing every Maverick on the roster and figure it out).

I totally forgot Elton Brand was a former number one pick. He was drafted first overall in 1999 and played just two seasons for the Bulls (averaging 20.1 points and 10 rebounds a game each year!), before he was traded to the Clippers for Tyson Chandler and Brian Skinner.

Chandler, of course, is the Mavericks highest pick. He was the second pick in 2001. Behind him, it's a tie between Devin Harris (2004) and Raymond Felton (2005) at the fifth pick. Charlie Villanueva (seventh, 2005), Al-Farouq Aminu (eighth, 2010), Brandan Wright (eight, 2007) and Dirk Nowitzki (ninth, 1998) round out your top five draft picks.

The Mavericks also have five second rounders likely to make the roster, namely Monta Ellis and Chandler Parsons.

Back to the poll -- I couldn't remember Anthony Bennett's name until the final 30 seconds, which frustrated me. Then I got it and realized I could have just guessed Wiggins.

In fact, I did really bad with recent draft picks, failing to get Parker, Embiid, Len or Valanciunas. I was really focused on going thinking back.

My favorite "get"? Marvin Williams.

23 of 30 was my final score. How'd you do?
