Walter Jones Bellamy (July 24, 1939 - November 2, 2013) holds the record for most games played in a season (88) after being traded from the New York Knicks to the Detroit Pistons when offsetting schedules allowed the center to play more games – 35 with New York and 53 with Detroit. Bellamy won the gold medal for basketball in the 1960 Summer Olympics in Rome, alongside fellow Hall of Famers Jerry West, Oscar Robertson and Jerry Lucas. Walt was the Number 1 pick for the Chicago Packers in the 1961 NBA Draft, and put together one of the greatest rookie seasons in NBA history averaging 31.6 points and 19.0 rebounds per game running away with the 1962 NBA Rookie of the Year Award. The well-traveled Bellamy played 14 seasons with the Chicago Packers/Zephyrs, Baltimore Bullets, New York Knicks, Atlanta Hawks and New Orleans Jazz. Bellamy retired after the 1974-74 season with the New Orleans Jazz with 20,941 points, 14, 241 total rebounds and 2,544 assists.
