Bob Pettit – 9

Former Hawk Woody Saulsberry drives around Pettit in one of the final games of the Hawks worst season in St. Louis….this photo in March of 1962 was taken at Kiel as the Hawks lost to the lowly Chicago Packers, a one season NBA expanison team (the Bulls came about four years later). At 29 wins and 51 losses, the 61-62 season was the only really bad year the Hawks had in their 11 year stay. Pettit even coached the last 5 games of the season, finishing with a 3-2 record.
