No matter how the NBA Finals end up, at least one former Jayhwawk will be an NBA champion.

How many former KU players have won NBA titles?

Good question?

When it's all over, Miami's Mario Chalmers or Oklahoma City's Nick Collison and Cole Aldrich will forever be a part of NBA greatness. They will also join a very short list of former KU Jayhawk basketball players who have won NBA championships.

Six Jayhawks are members of that short list.

It includes Jo Jo White, Wilt Chamberlin, Jacque Vaughn, Wayne Simien, Paul Pierce and Scott Pollard. So at least one, maybe two more 'Hawks will join that list.

Chalmers and Aldrich will do something no other former Jayhawks will do something no other former Jayhawk has ever done: One will be the first former Jayhawk to win both an NCAA Championship and an NBA Championship.

It's not like you needed another reason to watch the Thunder and the Heat on KAKE.
