Elgin Baylor and Kobe seem like the biggest possible omissions, but still a very solid list

Bob Cousy & Elgin Baylor are ahead of the Malone's..
my dad's favorite team all time is still by far the 72 Lakers. And to think Elgin Baylor retired early in season too. wow!
Elgin Baylor was the same size as D-Wade averaging 19 rebounds a game.
If you look up the definition of greatness in the dictionary, it will say Michael Jordan. - Elgin Baylor.
Fifty years ago, a group of star players told the NBA just hours before the All Star Game that they would not play until the league recognized their Union. Owners stormed the locker room to confront players but found the entry was barricaded. The NBA caved in realizing the game could not be cancelled as their inaugural foray on national television was hanging in the balance. The Commissioner met the demands of the players and recognized their Union and the game while starting late,was played. Today, players have monstrous salaries, medical benefits, travel in a cocoon of luxury, and can look forward to substantial pensions. Not one player uttered a word of thanks yesterday when microphones were placed in front of them and that is a shame. We remember the legendary names from that day in 1964 for their prowess on the court and not their far greater accomplishments as activists who leveled the financial disparity between the owners and the players, which provided for the sharing of revenues more evenly. Whi ...

Bill Russell's quote in reference to Lebron James' selection of his personal Mt Rushmore of NBA greats in which he selected Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, Michael Jordan and Oscar Robinson. Lebron further stated that upon his retirement from the NBA that Oscar Robinson would have to be removed as he himself would hold one of those spots. Yesterday while celebrating his 80th birthday at the NBA All Star Game in New Orleans Mr Russell, winner of 11 NBA titles with the Boston Celtics made the following statement public. Bill Russell to LeBron James during the pre-game (per Craig Sager): "Thank you for leaving me off your Mount Rushmore. Im glad you did. Basketball is a team game. Its not for individual honors. I won back-to-back state championships in highschool. Back-to-back NCAA championships in college. I won an NBA championship my first year in the league. An NBA championship my last year. 9 in between. And that, Mr. James, is etched in stone." Further insight on LBJ from today's Insidehoops.com NBA Basket . ...
John Stockton, Patrick Ewing, Charles Barkley, even Elgin Baylor didn't win. So don't call a player worthless if they don't win big
I've watched The lakers play since Elgin Baylor was a rookie. I have earned my stripes. When Griffin does something I'll ackn
so Reggie Miller is trash? Right right, same with Elgin Baylor, AI, Barkley, and Ewing then
I say Elgin Baylor but I respect that

Le Bron James one of the top 4 all time in the NBA? Not even close, the top 4 or 5 are big men. Wilt Chamberlain, Bill Russell, Willis Reed, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and George Mikan. the next five look like forwards, Dave Debusschere, John Havlichek, Bill Bradley and Rick Barry, Elgin Baylor. Then maybe some guards. Jerry West, Pete Maravich, Walt Frazier, Earl Monroe, get my drift. Nice try,but it won't cut it.
still all stars those boys weren't trash Russell the Big O Jerry West Elgin Baylor
Michael Carter-Williams is the 4th rookie to lead the NBA in pts,rebounds & assists at the break.( A. Adams ,Oscar Robertson, Elgin Baylor)
yup & you left out Jerry West Elgin Baylor too they would go before Shaq in my eyes but yup gotta have Mike
My second team no positions just players Wilt /Kareem Elgin Baylor Oscar Jerry West
Bob Pettit and Kobe Bryant are the only two players to win the All-Star Game MVP four times. Oscar Robertson, Michael Jordan, and Shaquille O'Neal have each won the award three times, while Bob Cousy, Julius Erving, Isiah Thomas, Magic Johnson, Karl Malone, Allen Iverson, and LeBron James have all won the award twice. James' first All-Star MVP in 2006 made him the youngest to have ever won the award at the age of 21.[4] Four of the games had joint winners—Elgin Baylor and Pettit in 1959, John Stockton and Malone in 1993, O'Neal and Tim Duncan in 2000, as well as Bryant and O'Neal in 2009. O'Neal became the first player in All-Star history to share two MVP awards. The Los Angeles Lakers have had eleven winners while the Boston Celtics have had eight. Duncan of the U.S. Virgin Islands is the only winner not born in the United States.
true but he still had Mr.Clutch Jerry West and one of the most forgotten SF ever Elgin Baylor. But the celtics were unstoppable
Most 60 point games in NBA history. Wilt Chamberlain-32. Kobe Bryant-5. Michael Jordan-5. Elgin Baylor-3. Just put that into perspective..
yeah, I'd even go as far as saying the first truly athletic big men were Wilt and Elgin Baylor - and that TOTALLY changed the game.
what they forget to mention is that MJ copied those movies from David Thompson and Elgin Baylor
Johnson joined Jerry West, Elgin Baylor, Wilt Chamberlain, and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar as the only players in Lakers-
“It wasn’t even really my type of game when I was young,” Nowitzki said, “so it definitely isn’t my type of game now that I’m old.” Nowitzki has never been an entertainer, not a guy who fills up highlight reels with astonishing athletic feats. He’s a hardwood artist, a revolutionary player who requires a certain level of basketball sophistication to fully appreciate. This 12th All-Star appearance was no lifetime achievement award from the Western Conference coaches. Nowitzki remains one of the most impactful offensive players in the league, and precious few have been so good while being so old. He’s on pace to join Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Karl Malone, Elgin Baylor, Alex English and Michael Jordan as the only players in NBA history to average at least 21 points per game at age 35 and older. God! i love this man!
Feb 16, 1961: Elgin Baylor of the Lakers scored 57 points in a 129-106 win over the Pistons.
Wow. Elgin Baylor. 28 14 and 5 assists a game for 14 seasons at 6 foot 5. Yeah he's on the pre 1980 mount Rushmore.
He said he was following in the footsteps of Connie "The Hawk" Hawkins and Elgin Baylor (with some of his moves).

that's a lie, your being brainwashed bro. so Jordan is better than Elgin Baylor ? we can pull up numbers right now.
so Elgin Baylor wasn't athletic ? Jordan was the only athletic player in the NBA ? Oscar Robertson is better than Jordan
Elgin Baylor truly is one of the most underrated players of all time. He averaged 27 and 14 for his career yet is always forgotten about.
Love elgin baylor talk an OG schooled me on him
.As did Elgin Baylor for the small forward position.
It's ludicrous how Elgin Baylor is underrated.

Triple crown for Carter-Williams From Elias: Michael Carter-Williams leads all NBA rookies this season in points per game (17.1), rebounds per game (5.4) and assists per game (6.5). He's only the fourth player in NBA history to own that rookie triple crown (while having played in at least half of his team's games) at the All-Star break. The others were Alvan Adams (1975-76 Suns), Oscar Robertson (1960-61 Cincinnati Royals) and Elgin Baylor (1958-59 Minneapolis Lakers).
2013-02-14 *Professional Basketball is entering its All-Star break and on this date we look at its black history. As a team sport it has been transformed by the presence of African-Americans. This story has progressed with the cultural, political, and social changes in the United States for more than 100 years. The game was created in 1891; African-Americans entered the ranks of professional players (the NBA) in the 1950s. Since then, it has become one of the most popular and exciting games in the world. Black players in the NBA have helped to transform the game into a billion-dollar industry. The games culture has become important as fashion, with logos of American professional teams found on the clothing the world over. But with the elegance and power of black athleticism capturing the respect and admiration of the world, for years it was isolated, as segregation split America along racial lines. Some of the earliest all-black club teams, were the Smart Set Athletic Club of Brooklyn, New York, the St. C ...
Sports radio just commented on LeBron claiming himself as one of the top 4 players of all time. I'm not sure he makes my top 10. Chamberlain, Kareem, Russell, Bird, Magic, Michael, Jerry West, Oscar Robertson, Elgin Baylor, Doctor J, Pippin. Ok so I'm partial to 60s, 70s and 80s. Who else am I missing?
My "ALL TIME" WASHINGTON, DC METROPOLITAN basketball team is: Dave Bing - PG Elgin Baylor - SG David Robinson - C Lenny Bias - SF Kevin Durant - PF * All the above are HOF'ers Note: KD would not be the best player on this team, or the 1st option, (Elgin) or 2nd option (Lenny). Give the ball to Elgin, and clear out!
Y'all heard about Lebron's comment? Hey, not hatin' on him- good for him! Heard it this morning, then just saw it again on Feel like I have to post: What's your Think this is mine: Michael Jordan (obviously) Wilt Chamberlain... The last two I ain't sure about. Probably Magic Johnson and Oscar Robertson (or maybe Elgin Baylor). I dunno. Interesting topic! Comment, please!

I went to the Lakers game today. Lakers lost... do you think I'm upset? Are you kidding me? I've been blessed to see the best in the world over the years... this town has seen the best... from watching Wilt Chamberlain block THREE SHOTS and get the rebound off the third in SIX SECONDS in a playoff game vs Atlanta LIVE IN PERSON, to seeing Elgin Baylor invent "hang time,' Jerry West... ZEKE FROM CABIN CREEK, 33-GAME WINNING STREAK, SHOWTIME!, listen to years and years of CHICK HEARN since I was 10 years old, participate in a WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP celebration at LA CITY HALL when they BEAT BOSTON... MAGIC! A PLAYER LIKE NO OTHER... and watch Kobe take shots that even MJ NEVER could have imagined... I've seen enough great Lakers hoops to last a lifetime! I don't need to hang on the team's every game or season. The Lakers have given me enough memories that I don't care if they ever regain the magnificence of the GREATEST SPORTS FRANCHISE that ever was again... but it would be nice! ;)

And for the record, Elgin Baylor played power forward most of his career, OK? John Havlicek vs. Pippen is a worthwhile debate, though.
The Kandi Man? Well, it was the Clippers. Being ran by Elgin Baylor. Owned by Donald Sterling. They were bound to screw up.
This is to end the argument: Charles Barkley, Karl Malone, John Stockton, Patrick Ewing, Elgin Baylor, Reggie Miller and countless others like Melo (for now) with no Rings...scoring championships, some won gold medals and college championships (which Melo one his only year in college). Most were MVP.but none the less do they suck for not winning a title
Its official, Kevin Durant is the second best basketball player out of DMV! Elgin Baylor, Kevin Durant, Dave Bing, Adrian Dantley and Austin Carr. Mt. Rushmore of hoops! Talk to me!
Oops forgot Jerry West, Elgin Baylor,Kobi, Malone,and one of my favs James Worthy. Easy to forget Lakers
Antawn Jamison -HOF CAREER? Your opinions? Antawn Jamison is 20th player to ever score 20,000 pts., 8,000 rebs., and 1,000 assists. Just digest that collection of his peers for a moment. Will there even need to be a voting process when Shaquille O'Neal, Tim Duncan, Dirk Nowitzki and Kevin Garnett become eligible for enshrinement? Of course not. Just like none was needed for the 15 players who hit those marks before: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Karl Malone, Wilt Chamberlain, Moses Malone, Elvin Hayes, Hakeem Olajuwon, John Havlicek, Patrick Ewing, Charles Barkley, Robert Parish, Elgin Baylor, Larry Bird, Walt Bellamy, Bob Pettit and David Robinson. Jamison's numbers aren't simply the product of longevity. They're a testament to his dominance, not his endurance.

My number was 15, thanks Mona Vallery my nephew gave me 8 last week and ten minutes ago I received 6 so how about if I combine the numbers? I’m 29! 1. I’m fearless, and that scares me! 2.

Elgin Baylor (former manager of the Clippers Basketball team) lived across the street from me as a little girl; I convinced my CYO basketball team to go ask him for basketball tips. He thought we were funny, we were 10 years old. (How lame was that?) 4. I interviewed the Honorable Dale Atkins for a series titled “Powerful Black Women in the South”.

NBA's Greatest Moments Lakers Win 33 in a Row The Los Angeles Lakers weren't getting any younger as they entered the 1971-72 season. Wilt Chamberlain was 35, Jerry West 33.

Kobe Bryant - THE LEADER & LEGEND OF THE GAME, GREATEST BASKETBALL PLAYER IN HISTORY, period. From 1994 till 2013 ... This resume is unmatched by any basketball player in any league worldwide. * Bryant is often cited as one of the most dangerous scorers in the NBA, and holds numerous scoring and shooting records including the highest single game scoring performance ever "recorded" with 81 points and the most single game three-pointers made with 12. * In 2007, ESPN ranked him the second greatest shooting guard of all-time after Michael Jordan, who Bryant modeled is frequently compared to. With career averages of 25.5 points, 5.3 rebounds, 4.8 assists, and 1.5 steals per game, he is considered one of the most complete players in the NBA. He has been selected to the last 15 All-Star Teams, earned All-NBA and All-Defensive honors every season since 2000, and was named to the All-Rookie Team in his debut season.

Bill Russell, a well deserved statue. As much for his Civil Right Work, as for his success as an NBA Basketball player. The Russell Celtic's epitomized the words "There is no I in the word Team". During the "Golden Age" of Basketball the Celtic's had continued success against the best of the NBA at that time. Wilt Chamberlain, Oscar Roberson, Elgin Baylor, and Jerry West, who would annually finish second to Red Auerbach's charges. As an African American man, Bill rallied his African American Teammates to boycott a pre-season game in Atlanta. Also, Bill refused to be manipulated into sitting on the stage in 1963 for Dr. MLK JR speech. He wouldn't let his celebrity as an NBA great be used by others. Bill thank you for being Boston Strong in a time of of struggle between whites & blacks, and an all time great on the Parque Floor.
Walt Bellamy dies at age 74. Won Gold Medal in 1960. 1 of 5 players to average 20 PPG, 13 RPG in career (Elgin Baylor, Wilt, Mikan, Pettit)

Russell's place in Hub permanent By Tom Layman 11 hours ago The appropriate call from a bystander came over the shoulder of Bill Russell outside of City Hall Plaza. "Congratulations, Bill. It's been a long time coming," the voice boomed from a small gathering of fans who braved wind and rain to see the greatest Celtic in the history of the franchise officially recognized in a ceremony that seemed long overdue. Two years ago, President Barack Obama called for a statue honoring Russell to be created and put on display in Boston where he made the Celtics famous, and yesterday the city and the team unveiled a larger-than-life sculpture outside of City Hall, even if the subject seemed just fine with it not being made. "This is really embarrassing," Russell said to a star-studded crowd after the presentation. "Because I don't know what this is all about. Philosophically, all I've ever done is to try not to shame my father." The process to make Ann Hirsch's design, which depicts Russell with taped up fingers on ...
My top 5 greatest lakers of all time. 1. George Mikan- the first big man in NBA history who paved the way for the games big men and helped create the NBA with his popularity. 2. Magic Johnson- helped to make the NBA popular again and is possibly the most versatile player ever. 3. Jerry West- best guard in Lakers history bar Magic and the only finals MVP to play on the losing side. He may only have one ring but blame Bill Russel and the Celtics for that. He also has 6 rings as a GM for the Lakers. 4. Kobe Bryant- 5 rings and along with Shaq helped the Lakers to be the most Bandwagoned team ever 5. Elgin Baylor- possibly the greatest forward ever but suffered from having no rings but revitalized the Lakers after being drafted and revolutionized his position Rambot
Steve Nash might wanna do an Elgin Baylor and retire mid season. He’s looking mighty old.
The Jazz Club listening to Lance Houston who blows a mean Flugelhorn with his Quartet. In the house Sir Charles Barkley's holding court in the company of Alfre Woodard with Karen Russell. Also Elgin Baylor was chatting with Bill Withers. Let's not forget Bill Russell was having words with Sir Charles Barkley too. Kenny Smith was chilling and grooving to some smooth Jazz with Emmette Bryant cooling out next to him. An our dear friend Ron Harbin was there also in a mellow state of bliss. Also Ron Watts was listening intently to the smooth rhythms as well. After the set was over Emmette Bryant just had to rap with the musicians. NBA Legends love their Jazz Music
I was at the ceremony today. I saw Bill Russell Danny Ainge Elgin Baylor Tomy Heinson & Mayor Menino was there. Pretty cool
Bill Russell finally gets a statue in this CIty today. Really long long overdue. Before his memory fades, he was truly a great on so many levels. But just confining my remarks to his sports activities, my personal favorite Bill Russell memory was a playoff game when Elgin Baylor fouled out of the game and Russell burned a timeout just to go over to Baylor and shake his hand. I was too young to realize all the ramifications of that moment but I knew it was really special.
Walked out of my office building with Elgin Baylor.and let the weekend begin

Save up to 70% on Inkjet and Toner Supplies!
Here is the video of Allen Iverson announcing that he is officially retired. He thanked his coaches, his teammates, and all those who supported him all over the years. "He played like a 6-8 2-guard," James said of Iverson. "He was one of the greatest finishers we've ever seen. You could never question his heart. Ever." The 38-year-old Iverson, an 11-time All-Star, finished his career averaging 26.7 points per game, the sixth-best career scoring mark in league history. He trails only Michael Jordan, Wilt Chamberlain, LeBron James, Elgin Baylor and Jerry West in career points per game. At just 6 feet tall, Iverson is the smallest player ever to average 20 points or more for his career. How many likes for this NBA Legend? -Tony -LBJSJR
Patrick Ewing, John Stockton, Elgin Baylor, etc.” Boy *** naw. A.I. better than all them

Not sure if Elgin Baylor makes my top 10 but like that Barkley always gives him props. Perhaps the most underrated player in NBA history?

Basketball fans are being treated to a great one so far here in L.A. I have been a Laker fan for 50 years going back to Jerry West.. Elgin Baylor and Gail Goodrich.. But the clippers have a few of my guys.. Chris Paul..Matt Barnes.. Jj reddiick .. This is too much fun !! Wish I was there live !
NBA Thoughts... After being a life long fan and bleeding purple and gold since my childhood with the Los Angeles Lakers, i believe this season will be a true changing of the guard in the city of the angels with the Los Angeles Clippers exerting a new era of excitement for the Los Angeles fanbase by raising their expectancy with a better professional product then which the Lakers will provide for the next up coming years to come.. But, i'll always be a true Los Angeles Lakers fan since i go way back to the Jerry West, Elgin Baylor With Wilt Chamberlain era and of course i can remember when they brought Kareem Abdul~Jabbar to Los Angeles...And then Showtime with Earvin ''Magic'' Johnson and who can't forget pairing Shaq O'neal with Kobe Bryant teams.. But, i'm forever the evaluator of talent and realities of chage that's good for our city, and i do hope for a true good rivalry for years to come at the Staples Center on Figueroa St... But get it together LAKERS because your little brothers the Clippers ain't ...

BILLY J. ...Bill Sharman, who coached the Lakers to their first NBA Championship has died at age 87. His team consisted of Wilt Chamberlain, Jerry West, Elgin Baylor, Gail Goodrich and Pat Riley. His strategy for each game was to tell them what time to be at the arena.
Tomorrow is the season opener for my beloved Los Angeles Lakers. I have been a Lakers fan for 50 years. During that time, the Lakers have made the playoffs 46 times, been to the NBA finals 24 times (almost every other year) and won 11 NBA championships. Along the way I've rooted for hall of famers Elgin Baylor, Jerry West, Wilt Chamberlain, Kareem Abdul Jabbar, Magic Johnson, James Worthy, Shaquille O'Neal, Kobe Bryant and others. 4 of the top 5 scorers in NBA history have worn Lakers jerseys. What a ride!
Hello gang. Before I start on baseball today, I need a quick second or two about basketball. Yesterday, one of the all time great basketballers died, Bill Sharman. He was 87. Bill Sharman was a legend in the basketball community and a nicer man could not be found. Bill also had a baseball connection. Bill Sharman is probably best remembered for his connection to the NBA but he also was connected to the ABL, ABA, NBA and Major League Baseball. Sharman graduated from the University of Southern California in 1950. He was drafted by the Brooklyn Dodgers and the NBA Washington Capitals. He played minor league baseball for the Dodgers from 1950-55. At, the same time he also played in the NBA. He played for the Caps for one year before he was traded to the Boston Celtics. With the Celtics for the rest of his career(until 1961) he was the back court partner of Bob Cousey in what many people have called the best backcourt pairing ever to play in the NBA. Coz, of course was the "point guard" and Sharma ...

Watching some of the greatest dunks on YouTube with my pops. Elgin Baylor on Bill Russell, Dr J over Bill Walton, Dominique Wilkins on Larry Bird, Grant Hill on Alonzo Mourning, Vince Carter over Mutombo, Ryan Holden Wetzel Over Dillon. And of course Jordan over Ewing

In an interview recently with Ahmad Rashad promoting the video game NBA 2K14 released today, Jordan said he’d love to test his one-on-one skills against the likes of Jerry West, Elgin Baylor, Julius Erving, Dwayne Wade, LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, and Kobe Bryant among others– and believes he’ll come out on top each time. In a vintage Jordan diss, he said he wasn’t sure if he can beat Bryant because of one obvious thing. ”I don’t think I would lose,” Jordan said in the video, before smiling and adding, ”Other than to Kobe Bryant because he steals all of my moves.”
2K has no idea how good Elgin Baylor was. Me and do though.

Before there was Kobe, Jordan, and Dr. J, there was ELGIN BAYLOR! The Greatest Laker of them all...quote by Chick Hern. If you never saw him play, "Don't Comment," enjoys the video and learn about Elgin the Great.
I have always loved Elgin Baylor as one of the all-time greats of the NBA and Minneapolis and Los Angeles Lakers. Elgin Baylor and Oscar Robertson are the forerunners of recent greats Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant. When Baylor and Robertson were at the height of their careers, there was no such thing as a three point shot.

Michael Jordan says he could beat LeBron 1-on-1 in his prime, but not Kobe, because ‘he steals all my moves’ By Dan Devine | Ball Don't Lie – Tue, Oct 1, 2013 11:30 PM MYT Ships passing in the night. (David Kyle/NBA/Getty Images) First, late Monday evening, came this video from the folks at 2K Sports, as part of the promotional efforts for their new game, "NBA 2K14," which hit store shelves Tuesday and features LeBron James on the cover, Kent Bazemore on the bench, Euroleague teams in the mix and LeBron's future in the balance: OK, so, maybe not quite so "uncensored." But no need to wait to catch the spot on cable sports news — The Associated Press already got behind those bars and beneath those beeps to get the scoop on which players Michael Jordan would have liked to face one-on-one in his prime, if given the opportunity: In a video promoting the NBA 2K14 video game that is being released today, Jordan said there's a long list of players he would've liked to have played one-on-one — Jerry West ...
If you're looking for a SF and you miss out on Dr. J, you'll still be able to look at Rick Barry and Elgin Baylor

It makes me wonder how many finals MVPs would Elgin Baylor have had the Lakers won those titles

That also means if I was picking an all-star NBA team I need to select Ron Harper over Pistol Pete, Elgin Baylor, or THEE Jerry West?!
Then let's throw in Oscar &Elgin Baylor dor t/ sake of argument. Mr. Triple Double or t/ guy that gets credit for staring above t/ rim play?
Where will you rank Elgin Baylor in the most under-rated players in NBA history?
as good as bird. U name Elgin Baylor and George Gervin their not even close to Bird. Bird is the greatest passing forward ever
Elgin Baylor played in an era where Bill Russell was the only good strong player he went against and Russell
If that's the case, than Karl Malone, Patrick Ewing, Elgin Baylor suck and guys like Robert Horry who has 7 rings is better.
If your definition of a winner is just championships, then that's a little unfair to guys like Jerry West and Elgin Baylor.
I'd take Larry Bird and Elgin Baylor first. SF to me.
Iverson, Elgin Baylor, Charles Barkley, Patrick Ewing and John Stockton are my top 5 never to win a title
Lakers:. PG: Magic Johnson. SG: Kobe Bryant. SF: Elgin Baylor. PF: Shaquille O'Neal. C: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. This has to be the favorite.
19th all-time scoring, ahead of Charles Barkley, paul pierce, ray allen Tim Duncan, elgin baylor, and Larry Bird To Name a Few.
Jordan was nice I think Dr J the Elgin Baylor Benard king are some of the greatest of all time
Gervin & Elgin Baylor don't deserve to be either...?
Just to be different I'll go: Iverson, Pistol Pete, Elgin Baylor, Karl Malone, Patrick Ewing
I think LeBron Tim Duncan and Elgin Baylor are better than bird and if KD wins one or two, he moves up too.
I have Iverson as the 5th best player to never win ring behind Elgin Baylor, Karl Malone, Charles Barkley, John Stockton.
I just had a Jordan game 6 performance in Vegas. Following this weekend up with an Elgin Baylor game 5.

Mr. Dwight Howard i just want to say good luck on what ever it is that you decide tomorrow but i want you to take a minute and think about something over the past 5 decades there has never been a big man down low playing for the LA Lakers who was not considered the greatest Center of that era . Staying a Laker you are joining the ranks of George Mikan, Elgin Baylor, Wilt Chamberlin, Kareem, and Shaq. for a brief period Andrew Bynum was looking like the Heir apparent until an young man from Atlanta started showcasing his talents in Orlando. now i know you probbably will not read this but i want the fans to see that we are a team with great History. I do not care if Jordan played for every team in the nba and won 50 rings in row blind folded he will never be Magic or Worthy or Kobe to me . Mr. Howard you want to know who i am ? I am Justin Preston and I am a Laker fan not a fan of a player on the Lakers but a Lakers Fan Join the ranks of the Immortals -
We lose Caron and Bledsoe and we pick up...Jared Dudley and...JJ Redick?!?!? OH MY GOD! THAT'S ELGIN BAYLOR'S MUSIC!!!
as much destain I have for Kobe I will say he surpassed Jerry West, George Mikan, Shaq, nd Elgin Baylor as the greatest Laker ever
The Spurs have also brought in Elgin Baylor as a special assistant to Manu's

been a diehard fan since 92 & I always stuck by but yesterday's trade smacks of the incompetent Elgin Baylor era.
btw, your beloved Clips utterly collapsed in Year Four of my NBA megagame. I think they're not handling Elgin Baylor aging.
Elgin Baylor comes to mind. Is he considered a superstar? I heard he was MJ before MJ.
All the Cluppers could get for Bledsoe and Butler was Reddick and Dudley??? Is Elgin Baylor back as GM??? They couldn't get a better deal than those two??? Same old Clippers.

Paul recommitted to Clippers. No shock. They have a good thing going. Who would've thought? Elgin Baylor is no longer in charge. Thank God.
All that know me know that I am a LAKER HATER!! But when you add the: Killer instinct of Jerry West, the scoring ability of Elgin Baylor, the work ethic of Kareem (don't front), and BB IQ of Magic plus the coolness under fire like Gail Goodrich, add the exponent of 2 and multiply that total by 100, you have arguably the greatest Laker ever!!! (I still hate this guy)
Stealing this great question from Kareems FB page. "Are the Lakers known more for their great centers like Chamberlain, Shaq and myself, or great guards like West, Magic and Kobe?" -MK
never realized how much of a racist the owner of the La Clippers is. even Elgin Baylor sued him for defermation n racism within workplace
i love me some Elgin Baylor Lumpkin!

Out of loop on NBA Draft, heard someone say MJ has supplanted Elgin Baylor as worst GM by taking Cody Zeller at four.
LeBron with 30+ points in 4th straight Game 7. That's 2nd most all-time now behind Elgin Baylor, who did it 5 times.
"My biggest thrill came the night Elgin Baylor and I combined for 73 points at Madison Square Garden. Elgin had 71 of them."
With the Cody Zeller pick, Michael Jordan has officially claimed the title of worst front office basketball mind ever. He makes Elgin Baylor look like Jerry West. Straight horrible.
So the Nets are getting Pierce and Garnett.was Steve Nash not available. Elgin Baylor? Bob Cousey? Coach Naismith?
Lebron James best small forward in NBA history??? Whatchall think...
somehow MJ's legacy on the court will be affected by him being the worst executive in the history of sports. IE Elgin Baylor
Its official, whatever u think about Michael Jordan as a player, he is TURRIBLE as front office executive!
LOL the Lakers have never gotten a good draft pick? Magic Johnson, James Worthy, Jerry West, Elgin Baylor, Nick Van Exel, Eddie Jones?
Michael Jordan is the greatest player in NBA history but is fast approaching Elgin Baylor territory as a front office executive/talent evaluator. WOW
Neck and neck and neck as who is the worst GM ever: Elgin Baylor, Isaiah Thomas or Michael Jordan. Tough
it's official, arguably the greatest player of all time also owns the title of worst executive. Elgin Baylor is poppin bottles

Not only did u 4get about Kareem, but u also 4got about Akeem/aka Hakeem, Elgin Baylor, Big O! Honerable mentions..Ewing, Admiral
I have been a Lakers fan since Elgin Baylor. The Lakers made 2 mistakes...1) Hiring D'Antoni with his smoke screen offense (meaning there is no system) and 2) Bringing Dwight in. Neither have what it takes to play the high level championship ball that the Lakers play. Bring Phil back...or at least someone who understands what it means to win championships. We can do well without Howard. He is fooling himself if he thinks ANY team is going to build with him as the center of the team. He cannot put a team on his shoulders and carry them to a championship..uh..remember Orlando? If the silly boy wants to go...let the silly boy go; just send D'Antoni with him!
Elgin Baylor for the Lakers, Ed Macauley for the Celtics.
The palming (also known as the carry) call. Every ISO play or display of "good handles" from the past 20 years has heavily depended on players being allowed to"palm" the ball - something that used to be illegal in basketball but was gradually phased out to make the game more visually dynamic. This is why players back then looked a little stiff when dribbling, their limited display of dribbling moves has absolutely nothing to do with their skills or talents - they just had to follow a different set of rules.-Andrew
