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

James Worthy

NBA Championship(s): Los Angeles Lakers (1985, 1987, 1988)
NCAA Championship(s): North Carolina Tar Heels (1982)

James Worthy was an excellent player. He has a a spot on the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame and a place on the NBA's 50th Anniversary All-Time Team to show for it. But, you know what doesn't hurt? Calling equally, if not better players your teammates. You see, in his only NCAA title with North Carolina, Worthy played alongside Michael Jordan and Sam Perkins, and he had Magic Johnson and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar as a member of the Lakers. Like we said, Worthy was good but he did have some good help around him. *ducks*
