1962 Rookie of the Year
Four time All-Star
1960 Gold Medal Winner
In the days before the NBA became the national spectacle it is today, there was a time when it was just getting off the ground with players who wouldn't even crack a roster today. Walt Bellamy was not one of those players—in fact, he could make any roster in the league today. Regarded as one of the first centers to revolutionize the position, 'Bells' averaged 32 points and 19 rebounds to win the Rookie of the Year award where he also led the league in field goal percentage.
Unfortunately, Bellamy never won a championship. Instead, he just had one of the most illustrious careers despite being overshadowed by two other impressive centers who had already taken over the league.
Career Averages: 20 ppg, 14 rpg, and 2 apg.
