Bob Pettit. Well, most of us reading this probably haven’t seen Bob Pettit play.

However, as you can see in the picture above he has a pretty cool patch of chest hair. He was the original star of the Hawks in St.Louis and then in Atlanta and led the Hawks to their only NBA title in the 1957-1958 season.

He played 11 seasons for the Hawks, from 1954-1965, Petit was the first player to win an MVP Award, the first player to hit 20,000 career points, and is still the only player in NBA history to have averaged at least 20 points and 12 rebounds in every season they played.

What do you think?
