NBA Legends: Elgin Baylor
Had Elgin Baylor been born 25 years later, his acrobatic moves would have been captured on video, his name emblazoned on sneakers, and his face plastered on cereal boxes. But he played before the days of widespread television exposure. All we have now to showcase his prowess are the words of those who saw one of the greatest player that ever played basketball. Baylor's longtime teammate Jerry West told HOOP magazine in 1992 that Baylor "was one of the most spectacular shooters the game has ever known,. I hear people talking about forwards today and I haven't seen many that can compare with him."
