The entire 2021 Hall of Fame class has been revealed a couple of hours after the 2020 Hall of Fame ceremony took part. The class will feature some big names from the NBA, WNBA as well as coaches.
ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski broke the news, announcing the complete list of legends that will get immortalized next September. Four NBA legends will enter the Hall of the immortals in the next couple of months.
Players: Paul Pierce, Chris Bosh, Chris Webber, Ben Wallace; Coaches: Rick Adelman, Jay Wright, Bill Russell. WNBA: Yolanda Griffith, Lauren Jackson.
This class will have plenty of big men, with Bosh, Webber, and Wallace having a similar role on the court during their active days.
Bill Russell will enter the HOF as a head coach now, alongside Adelman and Wright.
Things changed this season after the 2020 COVID pandemic. That's why we had the 2020 ceremony yesterday, while this one will be in September.
This is a great honor for all of these people. They left a significant mark on the game and now will be immortalized.
