It also helped that his teammates included Jerry West, Oscar Robertson, and Jerry Lucas.
But college wasn’t the only place Bellamy excelled. He was the NBA’s rookie of the year in 1962, scoring an amazing 31.6 points per game and averaging 19.0 rebounds. His NBA career continued to improve from there, including four NBA All-Star appearances.
