Q10In 1984, the prize of the NBA Draft was the University of Houston’s Hakeem Olajuwon,not North Carolina product X. But when X fell to the Y at No. 3, it was one heck of aconsolation prize for then General Manager Rod Thorn.The consensus was clear that X would be a good NBA player, said Thorn, having beennamed the collegiate player of the year twice. But it was the traditional center teamswere looking for, and Olajuwon had the makings of a dominant one.A coin flip between Houston and Portland determined the Rockets would pick first. Afterthe Houston Rockets selected Hakeem Olajuwon with the top pick, the Blazers passedup on X to take University of Kentucky center Sam Bowie second overall. Hence, X was on the board when the Y were ready to select.Bowie turned out to be perhaps the biggest bust in NBA history, spending a great dealof his career on the injured list and never meeting expectations. Whereas for X, hebecame a great player.Give me X and Y.
Q12 Give me the 2 words X-Y.● The exact origins of the use of a X-Y to uses are lost in history, although there are many theories.● The most interesting theory of the origins of the X-Y dates back to the 1800′s after the date of the Louisiana Purchase.● An early American past-time in the Mid-West settlement included horse racing. After the races, those in attendance would gather for lunch or dinner. Often, a table-cloth would be taken and waved in the air to signal that the food was ready, and the racing should come to and end.● The more likely reasoning for the use of X-Y is the contrast of colors being something easy to see for the racers. Back in the earlier days of racing, the tracks were dirt roads. Dust and dirt would kick into the air, making it difficult to see, especially when moving at high speeds.
Q18 Run Out in that fashion? Then you havebeen Xed!!As a bowler enters his delivery stride, the non-striking batsman usuallybacks up. This means he leaves his popping crease and walks towardsthe other end of the wicket so that it will take him less time to reach theother end if he and his batting partner choose to attempt a run.Sometimes a batsman, whilst backing up, leaves the popping creasebefore the bowler has actually delivered the ball. Where this hashappened, the bowler may attempt to run the non-striking batsman out.Getting a batsman out this way, though legal, is generally considered tobe against the spirit of the game as the non-striker usually accidentallyleaves the crease. The bowler is meant to warn the batsman to stay in hiscrease rather than to take his wicket.X ran out Bill Brown twice in this fashion while bowling in Indias Tour ofAustralia of 1946/47,which caused a huge controversy and hence anyonegetting out this way was said to Xed. X is the name of the a legendary Indian batsman who represented Indiafrom 1946-1959,is best known for his world record setting openingpartnership of 413 runs, with Pankaj Roy, in 1956, a record which stoodfor 52 years.
