Elgin Gay Baylor is a retired American basketball player, coach, and executive.

He played 13 seasons as a forward in the National Basketball Association for the Minneapolis / Los Angeles Lakers, appearing in eight NBA Finals.

Baylor was a gifted shooter, strong rebounder, and an accomplished passer.

Renowned for his acrobatic maneuvers on the court, Baylor regularly dazzled Lakers fans with his trademark hanging jump shots.

The No. 1 draft pick in 1958, NBA Rookie of the Year in 1959, and an 11-time NBA All-Star, he is regarded as one of the game's all-time greatest players.

In 1977, Baylor was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.

Baylor spent 22 years as general manager of the Los Angeles Clippers.

He won the NBA Executive of the Year Award in 2006, before being relieved of his duties shortly before the 2008–09 season began.

He had a special appearance in the Buck Rogers in the 25th Century episode Olympiad, as one of the athletes.
