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

Keith Erickson

NBA Championship(s): Los Angeles Lakers (1972)
NCAA Championship(s): UCLA Bruins (1964, 1965)

Keith Erickson wasn't a standout player during his time on the UCLA Bruins basketball team, but legendary coach John Wooden was still able to get the best out of every one of his players, and Erickson helped the Bruins win two consecutive NCAA titles in 1964 and 1965. Not bad when you consider that Erickson had to balance basketball with a baseball scholarship as well as playing on the school's volleyball team. Not surprisingly, coach Wooden called Erickson the finest athlete he ever coached.
