Among his many honors, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar won three NCAA championships with UCLA (1967-1969) and was a three-time recipient of the Most Outstanding Player award (1967-69). Abdul-Jabbar was also named the first Naismith College Player of the Year in 1969 before cementing his status in the NBA. (Photo: Courtesy of The Library of Congress)
