These NBA Giants Were Just Added To The Basketball Hall Of Fame

Some of the biggest, er, tallest men in NBA history were announced in the latest class of Basketball Hall of Famers.

Yao Ming, the 7-foot-6 center, and Shaquille O’Neal the 7-foot-1 center, who dominated four NBA titles were among the top of the class.

The just under 6-foot point guard was a league MVP in 2001 when he lead the Philadelphia 76ers to a championship game, nearly defeating Kobe’s legendary Lakers roster. But you might remember him more for how many times he said “practice” in this particular press conference:

Other Hall of Fame classmates include Coach Tom Izzo, Sheryl Swoopes, Zelmo Beaty, Bulls owner Jerry Reinsdorf, referee Darell Garretson, coach John Mclendon, and Cumberland Posey.
