About This Quiz
Sometimes, a sports team is more than just a sports team. They are an embodiment of a tradition or identity that is bigger than a game. Consider the recent run of the US Women's National Team at the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup. The American squad dominated the competition, winning every game en route to a championship win over The Netherlands. But with several outspoken personalities--co-captain Megan Rapinoe is known for her pink hair and just signed a book deal--the team is also advocating for gender equality. In March, the entire USWNT filed a lawsuit against the U.S. Soccer Federation accusing them of institutional gender discrimination.
Other teams are known for how they play. The "Showtime" Lakers of the 1980s NBA ran a fast-paced style that involved lots of fast breaks and quick movement up and down the court. It's a method that was perfect for their legendary star point guard, the 6'9" Magic Johnson, who many consider to be the greatest passer in the history of the game.
