This is an original press photo. Lucius Oliver Allen, Jr. is a former professional basketball player. Prior to his NBA career, he became an All-American as part of two of legendary coach John Wooden's UCLA NCAA Championship teams, 1967 and 1968. The 1968 team, featuring 3 consensus All Americans Allen, Lew Alcindor and Mike Warren, is considered by many to be the greatest team in men's college basketball history. After being suspended for his senior year at UCLA after a second small quantity marijuana possession citation, he was drafted by the Seattle SuperSonics in the 1st round (3rd pick) of the 1969 NBA Draft and retired in 1979. As a member of the 1971 Milwaukee Bucks team which also featured UCLA teammate Lew Alcindor (Kareem Abdul-Jabbar) he earned an NBA championship ring. He also played with Jabbar in two seasons from 1975-1977 in Los Angeles, neither winning championships in those years. Allen was traded the following season to cross-town Missouri-based Kansas City Kings, winning the division championship in 1979, and retired after that season.Photo measures 5 x 7.25inches.
