Those of you that were around for the baseball and football events probably realize that these are more difficult this time. I thought it would make it more interesting. wink.gif

lol, my bad. i meant the number of different team GMs that have won the championship.

for my last guess, i'd say:

the phoenix suns in 2005 is the 3rd team in 97 years to post the largest turnaround in wins.

I'll say that 97 does not relate to scoring. By the way, you still have 1 guess if you think of something. wink.gif

I'm running out of hints at this point... laugh.gif

Here's what's been provided so far:

First hint: There's no "I" in...
Second hint: The number includes 2005.
Third hint: It's not the first time.
Fourth hint: 1 equals 26.
Fifth hint: Another equals 10.
Sixth hint: Next to last equals 25.
Seventh hint: Last equals 36.

Ok, let's do this...

It's safe to say (from the first hint) that the number relates to teams. From the fourth through seventh hints, you also know how many teams contribute to the number and their portion.

Any new guesses?

97 is the total amount of playoff games
the spurs / suns / heat / pistons have played in.

Actually this should have said that
97 is the total # of playoff appearences for each of the 4 teams above.
Heat, spurs, pistons, suns.

If you can believe it, we have a winner! biggrin.gif

Counting the 2005 playoffs, the 4 remaining teams (at the time of the initial post) have been to the playoffs 97 times during their franchise history.

Here's the breakdown:

Miami - 10
Phoenix - 25
San Antonio - 26
Detroit - 36

Congratulations, te23!

Your prize will be shipped tomorrow or Monday.
