Boston did not have a top-10 scorer, but Bill Russell led the Celtics to a record 60 wins. The playoffs were not that simple: Boston was down three games to two to Chamberlain and his 49-win Philadelphia Warriors before winning in seven games. The Finals against the 54-win Los Angeles went to overtime in a seventh game.
The nine-team NBA had six players who averaged at least 30 points per game. The expansion Chicago Packers won only 18 games, but had Rookie of the Year Walt Bellamy (31.6 ppg, 19 rpg). Others: Los Angeles’ Elgin Baylor (38.3 ppg, 18.6 rpg in only 44 games) and Jerry West (30.8 ppg), St. Louis’ Bob Pettit (31.1 ppg, 18.7 rpg), and Cincinnati’s Robertson (30.8 ppg, 12.5 rpg, 11.4 apg).
