Can you recognize the TV show from its basketball scene?

Can you make every screenshot?

Time for a little TV hoops! We've gathered sixteen sweet images from across the decades. You know the shows, but can you recognize their basketball scenes?

Try to match each frame to the correct title! Look closely for familiar characters and other tip-offs. Good luck!
  1. When a character is from Indiana, you can assume he knows a little about basketball.
  2. That might not be regulation athletic wear, but it certainly is recognizable.
  3. This old-timer is showing he can sink free throws, granny-style.
  4. When you're playing in the house, you're bound to break something.
  5. The Harlem Globetrotters visited this TV classic in a 1981 made-for-TV movie.
  6. That does not look like a mascot.
  7. Up for a little one-on-one in the driveway?
  8. Driveway hoops are always a little nostalgic.

  9. Who is shooting hoops with Kareem?
  10. Uh oh, looks like someone is getting T'ed up for a technical foul… but who?
  11. This show had a basketball episode titled "Courting Disaster."

  12. She shot around with a couple kids in the episode "Christmas and the Hard-Luck Kid."

  13. "The Younger Brother" showed it wasn't easy filling big bro's athletic shoes.
  14. Now that is a pretty sweet dorm room backboard.
  15. Which Star Trek is this?
  16. This early episode proved it's never easy picking teams at work.

That looks like "Weird" Al Yankovic calling a technical foul against Farah.

Oooh, beware, MeTV fans--I think this is the first time FRESH PRINCE and THAT '70s SHOW have appeared in a quiz. It may be that one or both will be joining the MeTV lineup any day now. Not a good thing in either case in my opinion.

15/16; missed the Star Trek question - I am not a fan and have never watched any of them.

Me, too!
3. Rick Barry-style, NOT granny-style. It actually works; Barry's career free throw percentage was 89.3% https://www.basketball-reference.com/players/b/barryri01.html
6. Satin...basketball...shorts.
13. It also wasn't easy matching big bro's sneer.

15/16. Had to guess on a few or look for clues in the pics. Missed #15. Don't know enough about Star Trek, I guess.

16/16, but guessed on the last two. Growing up we had a Drive-way hoop, my brother and I played for hours.

15/16 and a few comments. 1 learned a few years later that "white men can't jump". 4 was blamed on Peter, and his brothers were snitches! 9 actually played in college! We all know a bad b-ball game set up 11! 14 is the college spinoff, and yes I mixed up my Treks!

That's not Ralph, it's Richie Cunningham's brother who disappeared, Chuck.

The truth is, he was on the team that plays and loses to The Globetrotters every night, and they were on tour.

Not only was Chuck not invited to Joanie's wedding but he was completely ignored in Howard's wedding toast where he mentioned his "two children".

I told you he was hated...LOL!!!

Did Chuck shack up with Donna's younger sister on That 70's Show?
