* Led League in Scoring NOTE: The Chicago Packers changed their name to the Zephyrs after 1961-62 season. Also, Lew Alcindor changed his name to Kareem Abdul-Jabbar after the 1970-71 season.

The first Rookie of the Year officially recognized by the NBA is Don Meineke in 1952-53. However, newspaper writers recognized winners from 1947-48 to 1951-52, as well. These awards were at one point recognized by the NBA and they admitted they had lost the records of these awards when they moved offices in the early days of the league. They no longer include them in their official records but we have decided to display them here.
