    Earl Lloyd  was the first black NBA player 

  • Fun fact: the ABA out drew the NBA that's why they merged.

    Chuck Cooper was the first black player to be drafted into the NBA, while Earl Lloyd was the first to actually play in a game (albeit only one day before Cooper). Both are in the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.
