NBA Trivia: Since 1980, What Seven White Players Have Averaged 25+ PPG?

Since 1980, seven white NBA players have played a full year and averaged 25 or more ppg in a single season.

HoopsVibe Very Quick Call: Can you name them without the aid of Google?

Dirk-Nowitzki

Larry Bird (four times)
1985 – 28.7 ppg
1986 – 25.8
1987 – 28.1
1988 – 29.9

Larry Legend is the easiest player to guess on this list. But it gets progressively more difficult.

Chris Mullin (four times)
1989 – 25.1
1990 – 25.7
1991 – 25.6
1992 – 25.9

The leading scorer during the "Run TMC" era of the Golden State Warriors is potentially the smoothest shooter on this list.

Dirk Nowitzki (five times)
2003 – 25.1
2005 – 26.1
2006 – 26.6
2009 – 25.9
2010 – 25.0

Dirk is the most prolific white-scorer in the history of the NBA.

Tom Chambers (two times)
1989 – 25.7
1990 – 27.2

You almost forgot about what a badass Tom Chambers was, didn't you? An insane scorer, he is responsible for the greatest dunk in NBA history.

Kevin McHale (one time)
1987 – 26.1

McHale is a player that I almost forgot about. But his statistical production was prolific and prolonged. Now it starts to get difficult.

Kiki Vandeweghe (three times)
1983 – 26.7
1984 – 29.4
1987 – 26.9

He was so proficient at the jab-step jumper that the move was often referred to as the "Kiki Move" toward the end of his career.

Kelly Tripucka (one time)
1983 – 26.5

How many of you remember the sweet shooting combo guard/forward from Notre Dame?

There you have it. Now use this question to stump your friends and laugh at them when they can't get past Dirk.
