Gail Goodrich



April 23, 1943 in Los Angeles, California
6ft - 1in

Round 1, pick 10 (Los Angeles Lakers) 1965 NBA Draft

Gail Charles Goodrich Jr. (born April 23, 1943 in Los Angeles, California) is a former professional basketball player in the National Basketball Association (NBA). He is best-known for his part in the Los Angeles Lakers' 1971-72 season, during which the team won a still-record 33 games consecutively, posted what was then the best regular season record in NBA history, and also won Los Angeles' first NBA championship.

A native of the Los Angeles area, Goodrich attended college at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), where he finished as the school's all-time leading scorer and played on the school's first two national championship teams in 1964 and 1965. Goodrich has said that he had originally wanted to attend the University of Southern California (USC), where his father had once been a star player, but that coach John Wooden of UCLA ultimately showed a great deal more interest in Goodrich than did USC.

In 1996, 17 years after his retirement from professional basketball, Goodrich was elected to the Basketball Hall of Fame. On November 20, 1996, the Lakers retired his #25 jersey. On December 18, 2004, UCLA did likewise.

Goodrich was nicknamed "Stumpy", a moniker bestowed upon him by teammate Jerry West, because of Goodrich's 6'1" (1.85 m) height — short by professional basketball standards.

After his basketball career, Goodrich and his family eventually settled in Greenwich, Connecticut. Goodrich became executive with a golf course management company, and he serves as a studio analyst for NBA TV.
