That is a lot of talent on one court.
The legends you see here are, left to right, Bill Russell, Oscar Robertson, Jerry Lucas, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Bill Walton, Patrick Ewing, Danny Manning and Christian Laettner. Together, they were all honored as the 15 greatest college basketball players of all time during halftime of the Syracuse-Michigan game.
Bringing this collection of the very best of the best to ever grace a college basketball court is a fantastic way to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Dance and one we are impressed NCAA prez Mark Emmert managed to pull off.
See the little, itty-bitty figure in front of Oscar and Lucas? Yeah, that’s the president of the governing body of collegiate sports.
