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

Lou Tsioropoulos

NBA Championship(s): Boston Celtics (1957, 1959)
NCAA Championship(s): Kentucky Wildcats (1951)

Along with a guy we already discussed in Cliff Hagan, Lou Tsioropoulos also suffered from the Kentucky point-shaving scandal that limited those two guys to only one championship. But don't feel bad for Tsioropoulos because after leaving college, he joined the Boston Celtics and added two NBA titles to his name, thanks to Bill Russell and Bob Cousy. And yeah, Tsioropoulos helped whenever he could with his little 7.7 career average. Was that mean-spirited? Sorry. We're not sorry.
