Top Ten Lakers Draft Picks

3. Elgin Baylor

In the 1958 NBA draft, the Lakers selected Elgin Baylor with the first overall pick.  Baylor made an immediate impact on the Lakers, and his offensive abilities were breathtaking.  Baylor had the ability to score 30 points on any given night, and he could make baskets from every where on the court.

Baylor played his entire career with the Los Angeles Lakers, but he never won a NBA championship.  Baylor had hall-of-fame numbers, but the only item missing from his resume was a championship ring.  Elgin Baylor averaged 24.4 ppg, 13.5 rpg and 4.3 apg with his time as a Laker.
