    I need to know the career totals for:

    How many times Michael Jordan missed the basket, and

    How many incomplete passes Joe Montana threw.

    I'm trying to put together a little inspirational talk for my youth group. Its about not stressing the negative and not giving up. I thought I'd mention that there was a professional baseball player that struck out an astounding 1,330 times, a professional basketball player that missed _____ shots, and a professional quarterback who threw ______ incomplete passes; yet they all still tried their best, never gave up, yada, yada, yada. Then, at the end, I'll name the three players.

    The baseball player is, of course, Babe Ruth.

    Any and all help is appreciated!

    Here is the information that I found:

    Joe Montana was 3,409/5391 which means 1,982 incompletions. (Source: Pro football reference.com)

    Michael Jordan wsa 12,192/24,537 from the field. Which equals 12,345 missed shots. This does not include foul shots. (Source: NBA.com)

    Thanks Todd! I googled a bit but couldn't find what you so easily supplied. I appreciate it.

    As an add on, here's a trivia question I've never heard answered: We all know Hank Aaron beat Babe Ruth's Home Run Record, but whose's record did Babe Ruth break?

    You will be stunned by the answer and it makes Ruth even more "Ruthian" than ever.

    Babe Ruth claimed the career home run mark in the 1920 season, surpassing Roger Connor's previous mark of 138, set in 1897. Babe went on to hit 576 more home runs, over 4 times the previous career record.
