NBA legends Jason Kidd, Steve Nash and Grant Hill have all been chosen for induction into the Class of 2018 for the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame, reports ESPN.
The formal announcement for the full 2018 Hall of Fame class will come at a Final Four news conference in San Antonio this weekend.
As for the three legends named, they all deserve a spot in the Hall of Fame.
Kidd and Nash rank second and third, respectively, in career assists. Kidd also ranks third in NBA history with 107 triple-doubles, while also being a 10-time All-Star and won a championship with the 2010-11 Dallas Mavericks. Nash, on the other hand, is just one of 12 players ever to win two MVP awards, and was an eight-time All-Star.
As for Hill, he’s a two-time national champion and two-time All-American at Duke. Many believed he would develop into one of the greatest players ever, even drawing comparisons to Michael Jordan. However, injuries kept him from reaching his full potential. Still, during a 19-year career, he made seven All-Star appearances and was an All-NBA first team honoree in 1996-97.
