    People think of Elgin Baylor as one of the greatest basketball players in the history of the game - and one of the NBA's first black superstars - but the full extent of his legacy stretches beyond his spectacular, game-changing jump shots and dunks. Baylor recounts his story: flying back and forth between the US Army and the Lakers, how he helped break down color barriers in the sport, his 1964 All-Star game boycott, and 22 years as general manager for the notorious LA Clippers and Donald Sterling, spent fighting to draft and sign young, black phenoms - only to be hamstrung by his boss at every turn.
