Any NBA fan will tell you that the 1971-1972 Los Angeles Lakers were a formidable team. On their way to a seizing the championship trophy, the Lakers had a record-setting 33 consecutive win stream and had an undefeated month in December of 1971. These accomplishments were largely due to the athletic prowess and leadership abilities of these three men, Jerry West, Wilt Chamberlain, and Elgin Baylor.

Sultry teen actress Phoebe Cates rose to fame the old-fashioned way … by taking her clothes off. She was underage when she did her first scene sans clothes for a movie then famously went topless in Fast Times at Ridgemont High. She once noted that if is girl wanted to have a career in Hollywood, she needed to be comfortable shedding her clothing. Cates must have wanted that career because she didn’t mind showing off her assets. She also said, “If you’ve got a good bod, you should show it off.”
