With NBA All Star fever taking over the sporting world this weekend, the league has announced the finalists for this years NBA Hall Of Fame.
Leading the ballot is four time NBA champion and three-time finals MVP Shaquille O`Neal, legendary point guard Allen Iverson and former Houston Rockets big man Yao Ming.
Back in 2015, the NBA modified the selection process for Hall of Fame ballot nominations making players who have been retired for four straight seasons eligable for election.
Other names mentioned in this years ballot include Michigan State University head coach Tom Izzo, former NCAA head coach Charlie “Lefty” Driesell and four-time WNBA champion Sheryl Swoopes.
The 2016 class will be unveiled at the Men’s NCAA Championship game on April 4th.
