Throughout the ’50s, nobody could draw a slew of fans or help defenders quite like George Mikan.

The 6-10 bespectacled big man—who won four titles with the Minneapolis Lakers—redefined the center position, caused multiple league rule changes and was selected as the greatest player of the game’s first half-century.

George Mikan was a hall of famer, 4 time NBA All-Star selection and was really the leagues first star. He averaged 23 points and 13 rebounds per game and was just the beginning of great Laker big men.
