  1. How Reggie, Cheryl Miller used to hustle playground games

    Sep 7, 2012, 1:01 PM EDT

    Reggie Cheryl Miller

    By the end of Friday night, Reggie and Cheryl Miller will be the first ever brother/sister combination enshrined in the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame. In fact, Cheryl will be on stage presenting Reggie when he makes his speech. That gives me a good reason to tell my favorite Miller family story, one Cheryl Miller…

  2. Meet the new Basketball Hall of Famers: Jamaal Wilkes

    Sep 3, 2012, 2:11 PM EDT

    wilkes-lakers

    Legendary Lakers broadcaster Chick Hearn used to call Jamaal Wilkes baseline jumper a “20-foot layup.” It was that automatic. Magic Johnson would drive the lane, kick it out and you knew it was two. And that shot, with its eccentric form that would make Shawn Marion wince — Wilkes swung the ball behind his left…

  3. Don Nelson says he got small ball idea from Red Auerbach

    Aug 30, 2012, 11:41 AM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Minnesota Timberwolves

    Don Nelson will enter the Basketball Hall of Fame as the coach who has won more games than anyone else in NBA history. He will go in as an innovator, a team builder, a guy who colored outside the lines and that worked for him. One of the things Nelson liked to do was play…

  4. Don Nelson now a Hawaii businessman, done as NBA coach

    Aug 29, 2012, 2:30 AM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Minnesota Timberwolves

    We told you a few days ago that soon to be NBA Hall of Fame coach Don Nelson was done coaching. As in not coming back to the mainland at age 72, other than to be inducted into the Hall of Fame. But don’t think he’s slowed down. He’s a businessman in Hawaii now, as…

  5. Don Nelson finally elected to the Hall of Fame

    Mar 29, 2012, 1:32 AM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Minnesota Timberwolves

    He’s deserved this for a while and it’s finally going to happen. Don Nelson is going to go into the Hall of Fame, reports CSNBayArea.com. The announcement will be made official Monday, but Nelson confirmed he got the call Wednesday morning to ESPN. “It’s a great honor to cap my career,” Nelson said. “I’ve had…

  6. Yao Ming says to put his Hall of Fame nod on hold

    Sep 1, 2011, 10:43 AM EDT

    Former NBA player Yao attends a business event in Shanghai

    Eventually, Yao Ming will be welcomed into the basketball Hall of Fame. If you just rolled your eyes, remember this is not just an NBA Hall of Fame. (We need one of those, but that is a separate issue.) What Yao did to bridge the NBA with China and help the sport grow in the…

  7. Should Jerry Krause be in the Hall of Fame?

    Aug 15, 2011, 11:05 AM EDT

    Jerry Krause

    We’d be willing to bet that Phil Jackson will not be the presenter, but the question is should it happen at all: Should Jerry Krause be the next Chicago Bull in the basketball Hall of Fame? The question came up as Dennis Rodman was enshrined in the hall this past weekend — Krause inherited Michael…

  8. Mullin says Jordan toughest defender, Richmond best teammate

    Aug 10, 2011, 6:00 PM EDT

    Chris Mullin HOF

    Chris Mullin is headed into the Naismith Memorial Hall of Fame on Friday, maybe the most legendary of Warrior players to enter the Hall (you can argue Rick Barry if you want). Fittingly Matt Steinmetz of CSNBayArea.com has done a series of interesting interviews with Mullin talking about his career. Wednesday’s installment: Who was the…

  9. Video: Artis Gilmore, underrated all the way to the hall

    Aug 9, 2011, 10:23 PM EDT

    artis-gilmore

    It seems fitting that Artis Gilmore was elected to the Basketball Hall of Fame by the ABA committee — this was a guy who should have been in the Hall years ago but ends up getting in through the back door. His whole career was kind of that way. He was overshadowed and overlooked. As…

  10. Winderman: Wait five years? Yao could be in Hall of Fame next year.

    Aug 8, 2011, 5:45 PM EDT

    Yao Ming Olympics China

    With his recent retirement, the waiting period officially is under way for Yao Ming. According to enshrinement guidelines for the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, “A player must be fully retired for five years before being eligible for Enshrinement. He/she may then be considered for Enshrinement in the sixth year of retirement.” Because the…

  11. Phil Jackson to present Rodman, Winter into Hall of Fame

    Jul 31, 2011, 8:00 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Los Angeles Lakers - Game One

    Phil Jackson may have walked away from basketball, but he’s still got some duties to perform. At the Hall of Fame inductions on Aug. 12, Jackson is going to be a busy man. He has been asked to be the presenter for both Tex Winter, his long-time assistant coach, and Dennis Rodman, a former player…

  12. Dennis Rodman’s 50th birthday party was all you’d expect

    Jul 21, 2011, 11:55 AM EDT

    NCAA Men's Championship Game - Butler v UConn

    At 50, Dennis Rodman parties harder than you do. The soon-to-be Hall of Fame forward turned 50 a couple months back but the birthday party just took place in Las Vegas. TMZ has the photos — including Rodman wearing a lacy black camisole then a couple jackets over it that I could not pull off.…

  13. Winderman: It’s time for an NBA Hall of Fame

    Apr 5, 2011, 5:21 PM EDT

    2011 Hall of Fame Class Basketball

    OK, exhale. No, not from the disappointment that was the NCAA men’s championship game (Butler apparently couldn’t hit the exit on its way home, either), but rather from the Basketball Hall of Fame announcements. Teresa Edwards, Goose Tatum and Herb Magee but no Reggie Miller, who didn’t even make it to the final round of…

  14. Chris Mullin also in Hall of Fame

    Apr 4, 2011, 12:49 PM EDT

    chris-mullin

    UPDATE 12:53 pm: The reports about Maurice Cheeks also making the Hall of Fame have proven inaccurate — he was not invited to join the hall this year. Chris Mullin was. There will be a post on the class up soon. 9:49 am: We’ll know officially in a couple hours — the announcement is at…
