1. Bob Pettit
The Atlanta Hawks franchise was built on the efforts of Bob Pettit. He played his entire 11-year career with the organization while it was in Milwaukee and St. Louis. Some of Pettit’s achievements included winning the 1955 NBA Rookie of the Year (he beat Bill Russell, that should be enough evidence by itself), two NBA MVP awards, and four NBA All-Star Game MVP awards. Over the duration of his 11 seasons with the franchise, he averaged 26.4 PPG, and 16.2 RPG. He is the greatest Atlanta Hawk of all-time, so of course he comes in at number one for this position.
