The Basketball Hall of Fame selected names were announced at a ceremony held at the Museum of Fame in Massachusetts.
Many legendary names, especially Michael Jordan, took part in the meeting, which was delayed by 4 months due to the pandemic. In 2021, 16 basketball legends managed to get their names on the Hall of Fame.
Chris Bosh, who has 2 championship rings, 10 times All Star winner Paul Pierce, Washington and Sacramento jerseys with All Star excitement, Chris Webber, and Ben Wallace, one of the best defenders in NBA history, deserved to be in the Hall of Fame.
Meanwhile, Toni Kukoc, one of the most important parts of Jordan’s Bulls, was elected to the NBA Hall of Fame after the FIBA Hall of Fame, albeit belatedly.
Bill Russell garnered the greatest attention at the ceremony. One of the best basketball players of all time, the 87-year-old legend deserved to be in the Hall of Fame for the second time…
Russell had the honor of being on the list as a player, this time as a coach. The living legend is the fifth in history to be inducted into the Hall of Fame as both a player and a coach.
Other names in the Hall of Fame include:
Former basketball players Clarence Jenkins, Bob Dandridge, Legendary coaches Rick Adelman, Cotton Fitzsimmons, 2 Olympic Medalist female basketball player Yolanda Griffith, former female basketball player Pearl Moore, WNBA President Val Ackerman and Basketball camp organizer Howard Garfinkel.
