1947: KAREEM ABDUL-JABBAR


There are few players who have rules made to outlaw their game. When Kareem Abdul-Jabbar was Lew Alcindor at UCLA, the dunk was deemed illegal. Mattered not as he dominated as a Bruin and went on to the NBA to dominate as a Buck and Laker. A six-time champion and league MVP, Abdul-Jabbar was a 19-time All-Star. His No. 33 was retired by UCLA, the Bucks and Lakers. He scored 38,387 points and grabbed 17,440 rebounds in a remarkable run.
