Shaq Diesel, The Answer Allen Iverson lead 2016 Basketball Hall of Fame class
Allen Iverson, Shaquille O’Neal and Yao Ming are all going to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. The 2016 class was announced on Monday morning in Springfield, Massachusetts.
Joining Iverson, O’Neal and Yao in this year’s class: Michigan State coach Tom Izzo, four-time WNBA champion Sheryl Swoopes, Chicago Bulls owner Jerry Reinsdorf, longtime referee Darell Garretson, pioneering coach John McClendon, NBA and ABA star Zelmo Beaty and multi-sport star Cumberland Posey. Garretson, McClendon, Beaty and Posey will be inducted posthumously.
This is one of the most star-studded classes in Hall of Fame history. Iverson is a cultural icon, one of the biggest names of his generation and will go down as one of the most prolific scorers in NBA history. O’Neal is one of the best centers to ever play the game, and he was named one of the league’s 50 greatest players just four years into his career. You’ll want to record both of their induction speeches.
