Clyde Lovellette
NCAA: Kansas
NBA: Lakers/Celtics
Olympics: USA @ Helsinki

Bill Russell
NCAA: San Francisco
NBA: Celtics
Olympics: USA @ Melbourne

K.C. Jones
NCAA: San Francisco
NBA: Celtics
Olympics: USA @ Melbourne

Jerry Lucas
NCAA: Ohio State
NBA: Knicks
Olympics: USA @ Rome

Quinn Buckner
NCAA: Indiana
NBA: Celtics
Olympics: USA @ Montreal

Magic Johnson
NCAA: Michigan State
NBA: Lakers
Olympics: USA @ Barcelona

Michael Jordan
NCAA: North Carolina
NBA: Bulls
Olympics: USA @ Los Angeles and also Barcelona


Honestly, off the top of my head, only Russell, Jordan, and Johnson came up. I also thought Bird, but he obviously lost to Johnson that year (Michigan State vs. Indiana State). I do love that the list is loaded with Celtics though (for obvious reasons, of course :D).

Interestingly enough, Jerry Lucas, Quinn Buckner, and Magic Johnson also won titles in high school. Lovellette apparently came close, but lost the last game before the title game at the high school level. There's probably a lot more PanAm and FIBA championships for Jordan/Johnson/etc., but I got lazy :P

Now which coach has

That's a better question, with a far shorter list:

Larry Brown

Of course, he hasn't coached the national team to a championship (did coach USA to the bronze @ Athens, a result I'm sure any Argentinian supporter will remember), BUT he did win it as a player at the Tokyo Olympic games.


Also, if you consider the 2001 Brisbane (Australia) Goodwill Games at the national level, then add Jason Terry to the list of players (won at Arizona then more recently with the Mavericks).

Hell, put Rip Hamilton (UConn/Pistons/1999 FIBA) and James Worthy (UNC/Lakers/1979 FIBA U19) as well.

Larry Brown won an ABA Title as a player also.

But not as a coach.

Magic and Jordan. Bird never won a NCAA title, he lost to Magic and the Michigan State Spartans in the much remembered 79'' championship game.
