Kicking it off with a two-time MVP and 11-time All-Star, Bob Pettit was one of the best players the game has ever seen. Pettit was selected second overall out of LSU and made an instant impact for the Hawks. After spending one season in Milwaukee, the Hawks moved to St. Louis where Pettit became an even bigger star. Pettit played his entire career with the Hawks (11 seasons) and is tied with Kobe Bryant for the most All-Star Game MVPs ever (four).
