Ferdinand Lewis Alcindor was born in Harlem, New York in 1947. From an early-age, Alcindor (who would later change his name to Kareem Abdul Jabbar) excelled at basketball, even leading his high school team to a 72-game winning streak and an overall record of 96 and 6. Abdul-Jabbar went on to play for UCLA for college. Upon leaving the Bruins, Abdul-Jabbar held a remarkable number of individual records, most of which still stand to this day. Impressive, not only because UCLA has one of the most legendary basketball programs, but also because in his period freshmen were not even allowed to play. The Bruins only lost one game in each season Abdul-Jabbar played from 1967 to 1969, which led him to an overall record of 88 and 3 during his collegiate career. In his three years playing as a Bruin, he led the team to three consecutive championships, while setting records in a number of categories. On February 25, 1967, Abdul-Jabbar lit up for 61 points versus Washington State setting the record for most points in a game, as well as most field goals in a single game at 26. In that same 67 season, Abdul-Jabbar set season records in points, at 870, in scoring average, at 29, and in field goals and free throw attempts. Upon leaving the NCAA, Abdul-Jabbar also held the record for highest career scoring average at 26.4 points per game. Not only was Abdul-Jabbar dominating, he also took part in some legendary games throughout his career. On January 20, 1968, the Bruins took on the Houston Cougars in the first-ever nationally televised regular season college basketball game. The Cougars snapped UCLA’s 47 game winning streak in what is still named by many as the game of the century. However, in the semi-finals of the NCAA tournament that same year, Abdul-Jabbar would lead his Bruins in a rematch with Houston, beating them convincingly 101-69. Despite being offered one million dollars from the Harlem Globetrotters, Abdul-Jabbar entered the 1969 NBA draft where he was picked first overall by the Milwaukee Bucks. In his first-year, Abdul-Jabbar took home Rookie of the Year honors after ranking second in scoring and third in rebounding.
