Lakers’ Legend Elgin Baylor Gets Statue Outside Staples Center

There may be few more underappreciated superstars than Elgin Baylor.

The Hall of Famer was playing above the rim long before Dr. J made that trendy. He averaged 27.4 points and 13.5 rebounds a game, was a 10-time All-NBA player, and was the guy a generation of players — such as Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant — built their attacking, high-flying game upon.

Friday night, Baylor became the latest legend to get a statue outside the home of the Lakers, Staples Center (joining Jerry West, Magic Johnson, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Shaquille O’Neal, and broadcaster Chick Hearn).
