Today’s question: The Cleveland Cavaliers wrapped up the NBA Eastern Conference title on Friday. But let’s go way back. Who was the point guard for the Cavs, who was an excellent three-point shooter and also one of the best free-throw shooters in NBA history?
Yesterday’s answer: Mario Andretti. After winning in his fifth start in 1969, Mario Andretti made 24 more starts without capturing a second win. The litany of misfortune that plagued Mario and the rest of his family at Indianapolis came to be known as the Andretti Curse. The Curse of the Middle began at the same time and lasted nearly as long.
