Travels from OH

Named as one of its 50 greatest athletes by the National Basketball Association, “The Big O” remains one of the most revered athletes of the century. After co-captaining the 1960 U.S. Olympic team to a gold medal, he moved on to the NBA in search of capturing a National Championship. During his 14-year career there, he captured the 1971 National Championship, and he was named NBA’s Rookie of the Year in 1961 and Most Valuable Player in 1964. In 1961-62, he became the only player in NBA history ever to average a “triple double” for an entire season.
