Two fine pieces in the Spring issue. Togo’s article focuses on his appearance as the representative of the 1950s for their 75th Anniversary. The Cooz is noted for being one of only four players who have made every NBA Anniversary team: from 25th to 75th. For those who have not seen it, any guesses on the other three ?

Paul Arizin, Sam Jones, Dolph Schayes, and Bill Sharman made the 25th anniversary team which only included 10 players . They did not make the 35th anniversary team which only included 11 players . They made the 50th and 75th anniversary team which included 50 and 75 players respectively.
Those are the four. As far as those others go, I do not know if active players were were eligible for that 25th team. They were for the 75th.
According to the article in Wikipedia-link below--the players on that first team, the 25th anniversary--had to have completed their careers by 1971. Otherwise Chamberlain, West, and Roberston should surely have been on the team.
