Lucas was one only two high school territorial picks in NBA history. The other was Wilt Chamberlain.
Lucas actually signed with the American Basketball League's Cleveland Pipers in 1962, owned by a young George Steinbrenner.
Lucas did not arrive to the Royals until the following year, 1963.
Lucas became the 1963-64 NBA Rookie Of The Year and was later a three-time First Team All-Pro for the Royals.
Lucas was a certain pro star. He had led Ohio State to three stright NCAA Finals, including the 1960 national championship.
