Chet Walker was one heck of a baller, so the veteran's committee voted him through already before the April 2 vote.
The 6'6" swingman played at Bradley University for three years in college, averaging 24.4 points and 12.3 rebounds on 55.3 percent shooting. The Syracuse Nationals then drafted Walker with the 12th pick in the 1962 NBA draft.
The Jet balled one year at Syracause and then played six years with the Philadelphia 76ers, being a member of the legendary 1966-67 championship team with Wilt Chamberlain. Walker was a two-time All-Star with the 76ers.
Walker then played his final six seasons with the Bulls from 1969-75 along with Chicago greats Jerry Sloan, Norm Van Lier and Bob Love. He scored 9,788 points (5th all-time), 2,898 rebounds and 1,107 assists as a Bull.
Walker made the All-Star Game four times with Chicago.
Overall, Walker averaged 18.1 points, 7.1 rebounds and 2.3 assists a game while shooting 47 percent from the field during his 13-year career. He made the All-Star Game six times in his career.
