Was the cranks bearing surface was damaged? (scored, out of round, etc.)
Was the oil contaminated with metal particals that dammaged other parts? (cam bushings, wrist pin bushings, etc)
Did you run with too low oil pressure and hurt the rest of your engine?

I have seem big Sixes that have spun a baering and were fine with new shells installed. It depends on the condition of the rest of the system.
