The Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, located in Springfield, Massachusetts, United States, honors exceptional basketball players, coaches, referees, executives, and other major contributors to the game of basketball worldwide. Named after James Naismith, who invented the game of basketball in 1891 in Springfield, Massachusetts, the Basketball Hall of Fame is dedicated to preserve and promote basketball at all levels and serve as the ultimate library of the sport's history. To date, it has honored 295 individuals and eight teams, with a class of 10 individuals (six players, three coaches, and one contributor) to be inducted in August 2011.

INDUCTEES

Since 1959, 301 coaches, players, referees, contributors, and teams have been inducted, with 10 more individuals to be formally enshrined in August 2011. John Wooden, Lenny Wilkens, and Bill Sharman have each been inducted as both player and coach (Wooden in 1961 and 1973, Sharman in 1976 and 2004, and Wilkens in 1989 and 2004).

Three times the Hall has inducted new classes without honoring a player - 1965, 1968, and 2007.

Bob Hurley, the coaching legend of St. Anthony High School in Jersey City, New Jersey, is one of the prominent high school coaches to be inducted into this hall of fame.
