Pettit led the Hawks to the NBA Finals four times in five years, and in the 1958 Finals he scored 50 points in the deciding Game 6 to clinch the team’s only championship. Pettit was named MVP of the NBA All-Star Game an astonishing four times, and made the team in each of his 11 seasons. He retired in 1965 as the first NBA player to score 20,000 points. A 1971 inductee into the Basketball Hall of Fame, two-time league MVP Bob Pettit was named one of the 50 greatest players in NBA history.
