ESPN’s Jay Bilas Names Best College Player Of All Time
ESPN’s Jay Bilas recently named the best college basketball player of all time.
That player? Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.
“He’s the greatest offensive weapon in the history of the game,” Bilas said. “He led UCLA to three national championships and let’s be blunt, it wasn’t because the other players were so great. They were very good, but it’s because they had Lew Alcindor and everybody else didn’t.
“Wherever Lew Alcindor went to college, they were going to win three championships and he was going to be the most outstanding player, wherever he went.”
Some argued that Shaquille O’Neal deserved the honor, but Bilas disagreed.
“Shaquille O’Neal is one of the greatest players ever and he had a magnificent college career, but I just don’t see how you can choose no titles and no final fours over three titles, three MVPs and without question, the best player of his or any era. That was an oversight on the part of the voters.”
