BOB PETTIT: 25 YEARS AND 121 DAYS
One of the first elite big men to implement a mid-range jumper to his game, it took Bob Pettit until his fourth season to win the lone title of his career. He made it count, though. Pettit averaged 29.3 points and 17.0 rebounds against Boston in those Finals, putting up an absurd 50-point performance in the decisive Game 6. To this day, it’s the sixth-highest scoring Finals performance ever.
