    Not sure where you got your information on today’s daily trivia question about the career leader in flagrants. See this link:

    According to the NBA, they instituted flagrant fouls in the 96-97 season. If that’s true, then Oakley isn’t the leader.

    “In closing, I’d like to draw your attention to #5 Charles Oakley, who retired in 2003 and still managed to rack up 22 flagrant fouls in only seven seasons (including six (!!) in 2000). Had flagrant fouls been in existence for most of Oakley’s career, I’m pretty confident he could have gotten to fifty. Oak is a terrifying man.”

      Apparently they took the data from Harvey Pollack’s Statistical Yearbook which includes flagrant foul leaders since 1990. A quote from Jun 5, 1980 Boston Globe suggests the league kept track of flagrant fouls since at least 1979-80.

      “A flagrant foul will call for mandatory ejection. There were only three flagrant fouls in 902 league games last year, and only one of the three offenders, M.L. Carr, was ejected. Now anyone so cited will be heaved out.”
