Vern Mikkelsen? I would bet that most people have no idea who that is, but his name sounds like he is from Minnesota.

Scott pales with the rest of this list. Mikkelsen was a perennial all-star.

For the record, they were the Minneapolis Lakers, not Minnesota Lakers. Interesting quiz, especially since lots of people forget that the franchise started up north.

They are called the Lakers because they originated in Minnesota, "Land of 10,000 Lakes".
