Bill Walton.

Not old enough to have seen Lew Alcindor or Oscar Robertson in college.

Probably Kareem or Bill Walton. It's before my time, but reading and hearing from people, those 2 sounds like absolute monster.

The best college player I ever saw in person was Christian Laettner and I think he's widely considered the one of the 5 greatest by most everyone.

I just looked at his stats the guy shot .557% from three as a senior and it wasn't even on small volume. 54-97. It's crazy the way he shot FT's in general and three pointers in college and his shooting pedigree that he didn't have a better outside game in the NBA. You can't really blame it on the era either, there were a lot of big guys shooting three's by the time he entered his prime. He should have been more like a Dirk type player than what he ended up being.
