The 1955–56 St. Louis Hawks season was the tenth season for the franchise. After 4 last-place seasons in Milwaukee, the Hawks relocated to St. Louis. The city had once been home to the St. Louis Bombers, an early BAA franchise that folded in 1950. The Hawks were on the verge of becoming one of the top teams in the NBA. Led by 2nd year forward Bob Pettit, Pettit would earn the very first MVP award in NBA history. The Hawks would finish in 2nd place with a 33–39 record.
