Biography

American basketball player, a center originally with the Chicago Bears of the NBL, but most notably with the Minnesota Lakers. He was the original archetypal pro basketball star, 6 ft 10 inches tall. Mikan won seven Championships in three different leagues, Hall of Fame, NBA 25th, 35th and 50th Anniversary All-Time Team. Originally awkward and shy, Mikan practiced long and hard to make it to All American.

After his retirement from pro basketball, Mikan became a corporate and real estate lawyer. In addition, he owned a travel agency and made an unsuccessful bid for a Congressional seat. From 1967-1969, he was the first commissioner of

the American Basketball Association.
