Prez Day BBall Trivia Quiz

In the Friday Cup of Coffee thread I posted a short quiz asking how many NBAers have shared a surname with one of America's first ten Presidents. PoohRubio responded with a suggestion for a Presidents Day fanpost. Seeing the dearth of new posts this All Star Weekend, I figure, why not, even though I'm getting this up fairly late. Anyway, without further ado, here are the rest of the POTUSes's:
