1 Lew Alcindor
He is the best in the NBA he is 5th best - 2storm
Only 2 losses in 4 years.
3 NCAA finals championships out of 3 opportunities, since Freshmen could not play on the varsity back then.
As a Freshman, beat the UCLA varsity when they were the defending NCAA champs.
2 Pete Maravich
Peter Press Maravich, known by his nickname Pistol Pete, was an American professional basketball player.
He took on the whole opposing team by himself! Watch when he score 64 points against the great Kentucky team but lost to Dan Issel team leading 51 points. He was truly amazing.
If anyone disagrees go talk to Hall Of Fame, Walt Frazier, and he explain how great Pete was. Walt, who was the defensive player of the year for guards, had Pete score 68 points against him and he still tells the story that he looked like he wasn't even building up a sweat to do it.
He averaged 44 points a game
Best ever no contest
The best bar none.

I still hate Laettner!
Nobody did it better at that level

Sorry, 21 of 22!
