Basketball HOF Nominees are out

The convoluted mess that is the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame has unveiled its ballot with limited fanfare. Of the major North American sports, it is unarguably the hardest one to follow, and the one whose self-promotion is the weakest. With that said, we are going to take a look at the ballot and the nominees for the Class of 2013.


North American Nominations (31 Nominees)
From this list, a candidate needs seven of nine votes from the North American committee to become a finalist.  Finalists will be announced in February at the NBA All-Star Game. They are ranked alphabetically, and their rank (should they have one) is indicated in parenthesis.
