Oscar Robertson (born November 24, 1938 in Charlotte, Tennessee) is a former NBA player and is considered by many to be one of the greatest basketball players in history. Coaching legend Red Auerbach described Robertson as the most versatile player he had ever seen play. Wilt Chamberlain is quoted to have said "If you don't know the answer to an NBA trivia question, just say 'Oscar Robertson' -- you'll probably be right." To this day, he remains a standard by which other basketball legends are judged.
A three-time All-State selection at Crispus Attucks High School in Indianapolis, Indiana, the "Big O" attended the University of Cincinnati, from which he graduated in 1960. While there he established 19 school and 14 NCAA records. In his sophomore, junior and senior years Robertson was voted College Player of the Year and lead the nation in scoring.
