1949-50 (#20) 1 2 0

Normie Glick

Forward, #20


When thinking about the Lakers’ all-time leaders in field-goal percentage, several names come to mind: Shaquille O’Neal. Wilt Chamberlain. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. Andrew Bynum. Normie Glick.

Um, Normie Glick?

The first four names are considered among the franchise’s best in that category. But when no minimums are used in calculating the statistic, a virtually unknown forward out of Loyola Marymount stands alone.

Glick’s stint with the Lakers -- and in the NBA -- was pretty easy to miss. The 6-foot-7 forward’s entire NBA career consisted of one game with the Lakers in their 1949-50 championship season. He took one shot and made it (he also had one assist and committed two fouls).

That means Glick finished his career with a 1.000 field goal percentage. And he’s the only player ever to appear on a Lakers roster to do so.
