A Complete History of Players Who Won Both NCAA and NBA Championships

Quinn Buckner

NBA Championship(s): Boston Celtics (1984)
NCAA Championship(s): Indiana Hoosiers (1976)

The name Quinn Buckner may not sound familiar, unless you're a diehard basketball fan, but the guy is a rare breed. Buckner has won an NCAA and NBA title, obviously, but did you know that he's won a chip at the high school level and captured gold in the 1976 Olympic Games in Montreal as a member of the U.S. Men's Basketball team? Only three other people have done that: Magic Johnson, Jerry Lucas and Clyde Lovellette.
