The Hall of Fame Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver of the 1960’s and 1970’s was, like many of his peers, influenced by Elgin Baylor:
“…Taylor credits much of his proficiency in football to basketball. “It helped the quickness, the agility,” he says. “I tried to do the things Elgin Baylor did. I saw this man while I was in high school, and I just fell in love with him. I wasn’t a great shooter. I played forward and center.
