11 Jayhawks have won NBA titles, but only 4 have won both an NBA title and an NCAA championship: Mario Chalmers, Brandon Rush, Sasha Kaun, and Clyde Lovellette. (Ok, Brandon Rush was a benchwarmer for the Golden State team that won in 2015, as was Sasha Kaun for Cleveland in 2016...) Clyde Lovellette was the first player in history to join the Triple Crown Club, winning NCAA & NBA titles, as well as an Olympic Gold.
