Cal Golden Bears Basketball Team Info
The Cal Golden Bears have a great basketball program,
so it's no shock that they've had some great players come through the program over the years. One of the best players to ever
don the Bears uniform was point guard Jason Kidd, who was a standout with the Bears before going out to stardom in the NBA
with a variety of teams, eventually landing as a coach after being one of the most respected point guards of his generation.
Another all-time great in the history of the Bears' hoops program was Kevin Johnson, who was incredible on the basketball
