|520||a|A player in the late 1950s and early 1960s for the Minneapolis/Los Angeles Lakers, Elgin Baylor was known for his acrobatic style of moving and shooting, inspiring others to get creative with their game. But when hotels and restaurants were racially segregated on their road trips, Elgin and his teammates boycotted them until the entire NBA followed suit.|
