Wilkens placed second to Wilt Chamberlain in the 1967-1968 MVP balloting. He was a nine-time NBA All-Star and was named the 1971 NBA All-Star Game MVP in 1971. He led the league in assists in the 1969-70 season, and at the time of his retirement, Wilkens ranked second on the all-time assists list, behind only Oscar Robertson.
He is also one of the all-time winningest coaches in NBA history, amassing 1,315 wins over 33 seasons. In 1979, Wilkens guided the Seattle Supersonics to the NBA title, one of six franchises he coached during his career. Named head basketball coach for the United States in 1996, Wilkens led the team to a gold medal at the Summer Olympics in Atlanta, Ga. He was the first PC player to be inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. He is one of the few people to be inducted into the Hall of Fame as a player and a coach.
