19. Chuck Share

The answer to the trivia question (who was the first overall draft pick in the 1950’s), Chuck Share would be traded from Fort Wayne to the Milwaukee Hawks, which would later be moved to St. Louis.  Share, a rough player who was adept in collecting Personal Fouls would have three seasons where he scored 15 Points per Game, but most notably was the captain for the Hawks Championship win in 1958.
