Trivia Question: Montana’s NBA drafties

NBA Draft

I don’t do Trivia questions that often but I ran across this, and I found it interesting.  Lets see if anyone else does.  I will post this and then wait until tomorrow to post the ansewr for all of you hard core Trivia Buff – if there is any.

Question: Name the four Montana born basketball players who where drafted in the first or second round of the NBA draft.

Follow the link to hints:


Addam Morrison was born in Wyoming.

1st  You need to go quite a few years back (even before most of us were born)

2nd  Is a little trickier  Should be a no brainer for any Montana fan, but is currently the most well paid sometime Montana native currently working in the NBA.

3rd   Should be a no brainer for any Grizzly nasketball fan.

4th   This is the toughy, 1st round pick in 79,  from born in Billings Montana


Round, – pick, – overall pick -, name, – Position, – NBA team, – Home town
1 – 9 – 9 – 1954 – Ed Kalafat – F – Minneapolis – Anaconda
1 – 14 – 14 – 1979 – Brad Holland – SG – LA Lakers – Billings
2 – 5 – 17 – 1967 – Phil Jackson-  F – New York – Deer Lodge
2 – 4 – 28 – 1986 – Larry Krystkowiak – PF – Chicago – Missoula

    My own personal guess was that Adam Morrison was born in Montana, but according to my source they had him born in Wyoming. In either case their is still one more Montana born basketball player that was was drafted in the first round of the NBA draft. As a matter of fact he is the highest Montana draft pick ever. While he was a great basketball player in college currently his family (name) is more associated with producing football player for the Cats and Griz.


    are also correct.

    Phil Jackson, Larry Krystowiak, Adam Morrison (was born in Glendive), Brad Holland
