Arguably the two best players in UCLA basketball history are hanging out in San Antonio.
Hall of Famers Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Bill Walton are in San Antonio for the NCAA Final Four. Walton posted a picture of the two of them on Saturday just hours before the Final Four is set to tip-off.

Abdul-Jabbar played at UCLA from 1966–1969 before having an historic Hall of Fame career in the NBA. He is universally recognized as the best college basketball player of all time.
The 7-foot-2 Hall of Famer won six NBA championships, six NBA MVPs, three NCAA championships and is a three-time NCAA National Player of the Year.
Walton was a Bruin from 1971–1974. He won three NCAA championships at UCLA and was a three-time NCAA National Player of the Year. Walton then went on to win two NBA championships. He resides in the Hall of Fame with Abdul-Jabbar.
