Before the Hawks relocated to Atlanta, Bob Petit would be selected to the All-NBA team in each of his 11 seasons. He even took home the very first MVP award in 1956, then did so again in 1959 while locking up the scoring title in both years, and has a championship to show for his on-court excellence.
