Players Who Won Both NCAA And NBA Championships

Mario Chalmers

Before an Achilles injury essentially ended his time as a productive player, Mario Chalmers enjoyed a successful basketball career. As a junior in college, Chalmers nailed a game-tying three with 2.1 seconds remaining to send the National Championship contest to overtime. The guard would go on to lead Kansas to victory. The KU legend spent the first seven years of his career in Miami — where he won two NBA titles.
