For basketball fans of a certain age, he is Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and he will forever be associated with the Los Angeles Lakers and NBA World Basketball Championships.

But for those of us with a little, ah, age on our bones he’s something more.

He was Lew Alcindor and when he played College Basketball for the UCLA Bruins in the 1960′s, he was more than one great college basketball player.  Let’s see, how should we put this?

Dominant.  Overwhelming.  Jaw dropping.  A force never before (or since) seen in the game.

Well, that would be a start.

In the video below, check out this retrospective of the greatest college basketball player ever to lace up sneakers.  Yes…in ‘those days’ we called them sneakers.
