Not if you count the 1990-2000 season as part of the 1990s, which it was. Ask joefutbol.

Good call. I guess an infield single and a single would technically be the same thing.

8. Tearfully relate how your fiancee was killed in a kiln accident. Often good for a stand-up double.

Not being a baseball fan, I wasn't even thinking of walk and hit by pitch as two different things.

Yes, if the cutoff is the 1998-1999 season then you are correct. If you include the 1999-2000 season as part of the 1990s then Shaq edges him out.

P.S. Dear Wikipedia: 1990-1999 is not a decade.

Is this how they take quizes at MD, you give five answers and wait for the teacher to select the correct one?

No, that's the actual top five scorers of the decade (1990-91 team through 1999-2000 team). A guy named Truth should know that.

My mistake, but come on, it was a little funny.
