Jamaal Wilkes Booking Agent Details

Jamaal Wilkes played in the NBA from 1974-1985 with the Golden State Warriors (1974-1977), Los Angeles Lakers (1977-1985) and briefly the Los Angeles Clippers (1985-1986). A 2012 inductee into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, Wilkes was a four-time NBA champion, winning once with the Warriors and three times with the Lakers.

His first title came when he was a rookie with the Warriors in 1974-1975. That season, he played in all 82 games for Golden State and averaged 14.2 points per contest, winning NBA Rookie of the Year honors while also being named to the NBA All-Rookie First team. In three straight years from 1979-1982, he averaged more than 20 points per game every season, helping the Lakers along with teammates Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Magic Johnson to NBA titles in 1980 and 1982. Wilkes was named an All-Star three times during his career (1976, 1981, 1983) and twice earned NBA All-Defensive Second Team honors (1976, 1977). His last title came in 1985 against the Boston Celtics.

Wilkes had a highly successful college basketball career at UCLA, helping the Bruins and teammate Bill Walton to back-to-back NCAA titles in 1972 and 1973. He was a two-time first-team All-American (1973, 1974) and, in 2016, became a member of the College Basketball Hall of Fame. His jersey #52 has been retired by UCLA. After his playing career, Wilkes served as a front office executive for the Los Angeles Stars of the ABA and worked in wealth management and real estate. He also authored the books “Success Under Fire: Lessons For Being Your Best In Crunch Times” and “Jamaal Wilkes: Memoirs of The Original Smooth As Silk”.
