In a career that spanned 1,031 games in 14 NBA seasons, Gail Goodrich scored 18.6 points per contest and was a five-time All-Star. Gail was the leading scorer on one of the greatest teams in NBA history: the 1971-72 Los Angeles Lakers. He is best known for scoring a then record 42 points in the 1965 NCAA championship game vs. Michigan, and his part in the Los Angeles Lakers' 1971–72 season. During that season the team won a still-record 33 games consecutively, posted what was at the time the best regular season record in NBA history, and also won the franchise's first NBA championship since relocating to Los Angeles. Gail is also acclaimed for his collegiate years, leading UCLA to its first two National Championships under the legendary coach John Wooden, the first in 1963-64 being a perfect 30-0 season. Gail also achieved All-American honors at UCLA. In 1996, 17 years after his retirement from professional basketball, Gail was elected to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.
