A Trip Down Memory Lane: Mark Heisler Describes the "Elgin Baylor Nobody Knew"

The L.A. Times' Mark Heisler explains that when the Lakers first moved from Minneapolis to Los Angeles they had a superstar "nobody knew" and they were a team "nobody saw."

It is sad that some NBA fans may only know Elgin Baylor as the long-time L.A. Clippers' General Manager who is currently suing Clippers' owner Donald Sterling; in 1960-61, Baylor averaged 34.8 ppg, 18.8 rpg and 4.8 apg--numbers that are simply staggering.

I included Baylor in my Pantheon of pro basketball's greatest players.
