1962-63 Basketball Season Roster
- Boston Takes the Fifth: Fifth straight NBA title for Celtics
- Changing Places: Warriors wilt in SF, but Wilt does not
- Rookie Stars: John Havlicek, Dave DeBusschere, Zelmo Beatty
The Celtics won a league-best 58 games and their fifth straight crown in Hall of Fame point guard Bob Cousy’s final season. In the playoffs, Boston had to conquer Cincinnati in a seven-game division final, then the 53-win Lakers with Elgin Baylor (34 ppg, 14.3 rpg) and Jerry West (27.1 ppg) in the six-game finals.
His Warriors had moved to San Francisco, but the change of scenery didn’t faze Chamberlain, who again topped the league in scoring (44.8 ppg) and rebounding (24.3 rpg), even while his team plummeted to fourth place with only 31 wins.
Bill Russell (23.6 rpg), Bob Pettit (28.4 ppg, 15.1 rpg), Oscar Robertson (28.3 ppg) and Walt Bellamy (27.9 ppg, 16.4 rpg) added to their Hall of Fame credentials, as did top playmakers Guy Rodgers, Cousy and Lenny Wilkens.
