First with the Milwaukee Bucks and then the Los Angeles Lakers, the pivot put all defenses at his mercy with his hook shot. Unstoppable, Lew Alcindor by his real name, was named MVP of the season 6 times and dominates this NBA chart. Behind, two other legends follow him closely, Bill Russell and Michael Jordan.
