Clyde Lovellette was one of the most dominating and decorated players of the '50s.  He was the first player in basketball history to win an NCAA Championship, and Olympic Gold Medal, and an NBA Championship.  The three-time All-American from Kansas helped lead the Lakers to the 1954 NBA title in his rookie season.  He won two more championships as a member of the Celtics in the early 1960s and appeared in four NBA All Star Games.

Clyde Lovellette was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 1988.
