Elgin Baylor was given a ring in 1972 even though he retired after 9 games, but not sure if there's a rule now:

He liked to tell the story about "the night when Elgin Baylor and I combined for 78 points." He had 7. Elgin has 71.

Elgin Baylor, who played for the Minneapolis Lakers and was an Army Reservist. Thank you for your service!
Looking through Mostly good, but no way Pippen should be below KD and Elgin Baylor. An argument could be made that he's

On January 15, 1961, Elgin Baylor scored 37 pts in the L.A. Lakers' 109-105 loss to the Cincinnati Royals.

Elgin baylor, Rick Barry, Wilkins, John Havlicek, James Worthy. just from the top of my head
Russell should have blocked the layup but Mr. Elgin Baylor threw up a high arcing hookshot and it went over the outstretched
Without Connie Hawkins there'd be no Dr. J, either. Same is true for Elgin Baylor. That's history...

key omissions Elgin Baylor, Jerry West, Shaq, Karl Malone (if you wanna have Stockton), Dr. J, John Havlicek, and no Kareem -.-
Since the Lakers moved to LA all there greatest teams came from the Draft Jerry West, Magic Johnson and Kobe Bryant all were rookies drafted by the Lakers and each were paired with a veteran Elgin Baylor, Kareem Abdul Jabar and Shaq. People want a quick fix with players that are already playing when they have a opportunity to get a great young athletic piece and match him up with a talented player in the League like love or kyrie and build around them with a coach and complementary players. Kobe contract is only 2 years and when it expires there is a good class of players we can get 2 players and team them up with a rookie from this draft class and then we are back in business.
Elgin Baylor is the player who has scored more points in a game of FINAL SERIES, 61 Vs. Celtics in 1962.
good point. That was publicized as well but Elgin Baylor lost. Saving Sterling again.
and don't act like Jerry West didn't play with Elgin Baylor & Wilt Chamberlain ..so he had help..
Elgin Baylor tried, but the media/ESPN must not have cared, because I don't remember them bringing it up.
I don't this Elgin Baylor ever one a championship. He retired during the 1972 season
Elgin Baylor agrees with me that OKC had no chance even with Ibaka so don't just come at me with your grievances
In 1961-62 Elgin Baylor averaged 38-19-5. He hardly practiced and could only play on the weekends (48 games) because he was in the Army.
OK FB family here goes--I am a supporter of Donald Sterling. I know, I know. Right now you are saying--are you crazy pastor? No, I don't believe I am. Follow my reasoning...I despise what Donald Sterling said but I defend his right to say it. Before his comments were made public--Doc Rivers had no problem being hired by Sterling--Chris Paul, Blake Griffith, Deondre Jordan, Matt Barnes, etc. had not problem accepting their pay from Mr. Sterling. All of this with the knowledge of Elgin Baylor's lawsuit and claim that he was racist. All of this with the knowledge of his slum lord practices. The NAACP was about to give him his 2nd, I said his 2nd lifetime achievement award. Now things are changed and people are upset not for what he has done but because of his words in a supposed private conversation. While I do not like nor agree with his words I allow and afford him the right to have his views. If he doesn't want to hang around Blacks he doesn't have to. We are living in a time of thin skin. You can't be ag ...
You know I'm not one for Memorial Day barbecues but this Memorial Day I've received an offer I can't refuse. I think I'm going to go kick it with Donald Sterling. Yes, I know this will be controversial. I know he has issues. But, he's an old man. Why not indulge him. At first I said, *** naw!", but he began to cry and ya'll know I'm a softie. He said so sheepishly, "Please come, Boy." Now before everyone gets upset I'm sure he meant it like "My homie". He said, "I'll have ribs, chicken and watermelon. I know you like watermelon." I almost said, "Look here, old man", but I gathered my composure. Understanding he came from a different time I said, "Yes a sir. I's like watermelon. In fact, I'll bring the watermelon if you provide the archivists." He was so happy I said yes. He said, "I'm so glad you're coming. You can even bring another black person with you." I responded, "Well thank you, Mr. Sterling. I will. I promise it won't be that scoundrel Magic Johnson. Maybe I'll bring Elgin Baylor." Should be qu . ...
I have tried to not comment on the Donald Sterling case in the NBA. I posit for your consideration that this is not a clear cut case of "racism" as much as Antisemitism--based on his ethnicity of being a Jew. The NBA did not try to take the team when Sterling was found to be a slum lord who preferred to exploit poor white folks, and without a question, when he settled an out of court resolution of his suit by Elgin Baylor. Only when a phone conversation between Sterling and his multiracial girlfriend appeared, did the entire world call for his head. Why? Adam Silver is the new Jew atop the NBA power structure, and I assume there are a number of Jews in other ownership groups and in the NBA executive suite. As of the most recent reporting, Sterling has hired attorneys to fight the NBA. I think he may have some valid points. How could the NBA choose to single him out, especially after they allowed a Kannapolis-born, born-again swindler like George Shinn to move his team from Charlotte to New Orleans. Then . ...
Elgin Baylor will probably still be a top 10 player in today's league
Kevin Durant is 3rd player in w/ 35 pts, 15 reb, 5 ast on road in series clincher. Others: Magic, Elgin Baylor
Fact: Kevin Durant is the third player in NBA history with 35 points, 15 rebounds and five assists on the road in a series clincher. The only other two? Magic Johnson and Elgin Baylor. Bleacher Report will be bringing sports fans the most interesting and engaging Cold Hard Fact of the day,...
Donnies past of housing discrimination and the whole Elgin Baylor thing is hurting him. This was like a 3rd strike
Westbrook & Durant are on pace to join Jerry West & Elgin Baylor ('63) as only teammates to average 26 PPG/8 RPG/4 APG in…
*** take a full hour to look at it and fully absorb the greatness if that's what it takes. Stay up all night if the need arises. Not only is Durant averaging 31.5 points per game—once more, the third-best mark of all time—but he's also pulling down nine rebounds and dishing out four dimes per contest. Those are insane numbers. Seriously, just insane. Especially because he's only getting better, as evidenced by this Game 6. After all, it may very well be the most stellar clinching game of his career, given the circumstances, his ability to bounce back from a poor start and his across-the-board contributions. To put his numbers in perspective, here's the complete list of players who have ever averaged at least 31.5, nine and four during an entire postseason run, regardless of how long or short it may have been, per Basketball-Reference.com: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (three times) Elgin Baylor (twice) LeBron James Hakeem Olajuwon Oscar Robertson
Congratulations OKC. The Thunder shut the door on the Clippers. Teaching the racist owner you do not win championships with a mostly black team. Dating a mixed raced girlfriend. Telling her who she can talk to on social media, then thinking your money pays to control her. Good for her, maybe Elgin Baylor being fired for racism after coaching 20 years for them looks so much smarter. This is an owner who could not even say he is sorry right. It was still her fault. Get over yourself, the apology was to save your team ownership rights not to the girl. Thunder up boys, no one wants Lebron this year!
The Clippers a classless organization with equally classless fans go down with a whimper. Durant passes Elgin Baylor in points averaged in playoff game, the same Elgin Baylor that sued Sterling for wrongful termination. Please ... Laker Nation for life!
CNN’S Anderson Cooper, AND THE LIBERAL MEDIA, ARE THE STORY HERE, NOT LOS ANGELES CLIPPERS OWNER, Donald Sterling (“Spotlight On The Media,” Part 2 of a 3-part series) PLEASE HAVE A SEAT, AND THEN BRACE!! Anderson Cooper, of CNN, did another segment on the Donald Sterling story last night, believe it, or don’t, this time with Cooper outrageously focusing on former basketball player, and former executive in the Los Angeles Clippers organization, Elgin Baylor, who worked in the latter capacity for 23 years. Cooper, who, in my opinion, is a demented, psychopathic, racial propagandist, wanted to know if Baylor thought Sterling was a racist, and, of course, Baylor who has the class of a chicken, not only thought Sterling was a racist, but knew he was a racist. Apparently, Sterling was not so racist as to pay Baylor with any “Monopoly Money,” and there is no record of any of Sterling’s checks bouncing, when Baylor went to the bank, which probably explains why Baylor did not find any racism, until ...
Elgin Baylor, a former NBA player and general manager for the L.A. Clippers, spoke out on CNN tonight about Donald Sterling and what he knows about Sterling'...
Michael Jordan lists several players from different eras that he would have liked to have faced in his prime, the 1990s when he led the Chicago Bulls to six NBA crowns: Dwyane Wade, Carmelo Anthony, Julius Erving, Elgin Baylor, Jerry West, Kobe and LeBron. “I don’t think I would lose,” Jordan said. “Other than to Kobe Bryant because he steals all of my moves.”
The Mount Rushmore of Greatest Athletes to Wear Emmitt Smith-not the greatest running back ever but the all time leading rusher/ Elgin Baylor-one of the first NBA players who 'played above the rim"/ Mike Bossy- great NHL goal scorer for the Islanders/ Jim Palmer- one of the greatest pitchers of the late 60's-70's for the Orioles. Greatest Orioles pitcher ever and they've had a lot of good ones.
My take after watching two Donald Sterling interviews, a Magic Johnson interview, and comments from Spike Lee and Elgin Baylor: I would be horrified if my parents were interviewed by Anderson Cooper on National TV... and they are just 70ish. Gotta love them crazy Baby Boomers. He should never be allowed to speak on TV again. Sh.
Came home from work and decided to catch up on the playoffs, then i came across this report by Jason Whitlock. TAKE A MINUTE from your POSTS and PIC and READ!!! The disgraced NBA owner made no real attempt to conceal his feelings of superiority. In his trial by combat, Sterling eschewed the help of counsel, both legal and public relations, and entered the ring alone. He left on a stretcher, unaware of the fatal self-inflicted wounds. There is no defending Donald Sterling today. It can't be done. Anderson Cooper and CNN did not trick a crazy old man. They did not bait him or secretly record him. According to Cooper, Sterling did not exhibit signs of dementia or lack of coherence. He was not an enraged, jealous lover. He is a white supremacist making a final plea to a small council of men he believes sympathize with his plight. "I wanted to apologize also to my partners," Sterling told Cooper. "I have 29 partners in a league that's a wonderful league. I respect them. And I love every owner. Every owner know ...
Donald Sterling just said something I have to agree with, Elgin Baylor never picked a good player.
Michael Jordan said "I would like to play Jerry West, Elgin Baylor, Kobe in his prime, Lebron in his prime, wade, melo. I don't think I would lose... except for Kobe Bryant" he clearly said he'd beat lebron but not Kobe because Michael and Kobe have the same passion.
Not to be racist but ..( here comes the racism comment -lol) / Why does Elgin Baylor look like he has black face on .
If anyone thinks Lebron and these players (other than the Clippers' players) will not suit up if Donald Sterling is still owning, put money up right now. And no, this is not a knock on Lebron. This is for all of those involved. Do you think these guys are going to blow their endorsements and their reputations as representatives of the NBA boycotting Sterling? Yeah, whatever. They all knew what type of Sterling was in the first place... so did the league. And if it was all that, why pick an issue that ONLY affects the league? There are tons of other issues in terms of discrimination that they could have stepped up for. Do you know why? It's about them, not us. Furthermore, why didn't they step up when Sterling got sued for discrimination against Elgin Baylor? Why did they wait until the Clippers players flip the warmups inside out. But we'll see if they hold true to their words. Sterling is a former Trial Attorney himself. He knows the Law. This won't be an overnight thing. Moreover, his wife will be fight ...
Ima say this: There's NO WORSE feeling than to tell someone (especially another minority)...that someone else is racist...and to have ur assertions dismissed!! Been there-done that!! Elgin Baylor vindicated??? Not hardly. Part 3.just when u thought u had heard it all
Elgin Baylor saying Sterling is a racist. Yet he worked for 22 years. Hm
Last night the Magic interview was as close to an apology I have yet to hear towards a NBA Legend Elgin Baylor, whom because He stayed in that position 20+ years, while beneficial yet degrading as all breakthrough jobs which allowed for the Advancement of Black GM's and Coaches ! Thank You Sir Elgin Baylor !
If Elgin Baylor had only had some support. Begging for forgiveness.
Johnson said he & others should have supported former Clippers general manager and fellow NBA great Elgin Baylor
