NBA free agency predictions?

July 1 marks the beginning of NBA free agency, and what a time it should be. LeBron James is available. So are Carmelo Anthony, Chris Bosh, James' and Bosh's fellow Big Three member Dwyane Wade and -- perhaps briefly, if he re-signs as expected -- Dirk Nowitzki. That's not to mention restricted free agents such as Eric Bledsoe and Gordon Hayward, plus trade targets like Kevin Love. What will happen when the players start moving?

Is Dirk Nowitzki an all-time great? Dallas Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle believes he is one of the 12 best players in NBA history. In February, though, the fans spoke -- and placed the Mavs' star forward dead last among the 21 options. Has your opinion changed, now that Dirk has moved up to 10th on the all-time scoring list?

It's always embarrassing when small children are better than you at something. That's why we're a little intimidated by this video of this kid demonstrating his complete and absolute dominance at NCAA tournament trivia. He's somehow managed to memorize which team beat each of the teams that lost in the 2014 March Madness bracket. We can't even remember what we had for dinner last night. Can you even come close to him?

Starting with Cincinnati, click each individual team and type your answer.

Dirk Nowitzki continued his march up the NBA's scoring list on Tuesday night, moving past Hall of Famer Oscar Robertson for 10th all time. Nowitzki has passed some esteemed company on his way, and he may very well pass a few more by the time he's through. Can you name the players in Nowitzki's company on the all-time scoring list? Take our quiz!
