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

Nazr Mohammed

NBA Championship(s): San Antonio Spurs (2005)
NCAA Championship(s): Kentucky Wildcats (1996, 1998)

Never one to stand out in the stat sheet, Nazr Mohammed found success as a solid presence in the middle on his team's championship runs. As a member of the Kentucky Wildcats in 1996, Mohammed tipped the scales at 315 pounds and saw little playing time as the Cats went on to win it all. When Mohammed finally did get into playing shape, he controlled the paint with Jamaal Magloire and, after finishing 2nd the following year, the Wildcats won again in '98. In 2005, Mohammed played a platoon role at center alongside Radoslav Nesterovic as the Spurs edged by the Detroit Pistons in seven games.
