4. Jo Jo White — 1969
Joel Embiid isn’t the only Kansas Jo Jo to succeed in the NBA. Jo Jo White was the number 9 pick in the 1969 draft for the Boston Celtics, and he had quite a decade with the team. White made seven consecutive All Star teams with Boston and won two championships, including 1976 when he was named the Finals MVP.
White averaged 17 points and 5 assists a game for his career en route to a spot in the Basketball Hall of Fame, one of only three such Kansas alumni NBA players to reside there.
