Chamberlain, Russell, Bird, Jordan, Johnson, Robertson, Baylor, West, Jabbar, Walton, Thomas—every one of them played in the Final Four. Isiah and Michael and Magic won; Larry and Oscar and Wilt lost. They all felt the experience of playing on that grand stage, with such extraordinary rewards and consequences. One can argue this was coincidental, but the experience is nearly universal for the game's greats. It was part of what formed them as players.
