Top 5 Laker Players Who Have Won NCAA and NBA Titles

1. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

Better known in his college days as Lew Alcindor, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is one of the most decorated basketball players of all time. The NBA’s all time leading scorer is the only player on this list with multiple NCAA Championships and NBA titles. Kareem has six NBA titles, one with the Milwaukee Bucks and five with the Lakers. Kareem played under John Wooden at UCLA and he instantly became a dominant force. He led the freshman team at UCLA (Freshman were not allowed to play with the varsity team) to a victory against UCLA’s #1 ranked varsity team. When he was finally eligible to play with the varsity he would go on to win three NCAA Championships, and if it were not for the freshman rule he would have had four. Abdul-Jabbar was also a three time MOP of the tournament and a two time NBA Finals MVP.


Some of the Lakers greatest players were winners even before they ever laced them up for the Lakers, and it is quite an amazing accomplishment to win both in the collegiate and professional level.
