One of the greatest players of all time and a true pioneer of the game, George Mikan revolutionized the role of the big man in basketball. He won seven NBL, BAA and NBA championships, three NBA scoring titles, and was a member of the first four NBA All-Star squads. He was officially named as one of the NBA's 50 Greatest Players ever, and he was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1959. Those signature specs and that No. 99 jersey will forever be etched in basketball lore. George's son Larry made a brief NBA appearance with the Cavs during the 1970-71 season, but that would be the extent of his playing days.
