2016 NBA Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony: Where to Watch


The class of players being inducted into the 2016 NBA Hall of Fame are undeniably among one of the most impactful of all time

It seems like just yesterday that the players being inducted into the 2016 NBA Hall of Fame were dominating their competition at nearly every position on the court.

In his prime, Shaquille O’Neal was seriously in the conversation for best big man of all time. Allen Iverson is arguably the best pound for pound player the league has ever seen. Yao Ming helped put Chinese basketball players on the map and made an entire nation fall even further in love with the game of basketball.

Personally, I feel that every single one of these players had careers that ended way too soon, and their relatively quick induction into the Hall of Fame seems to prove just that.

On Friday, NBA TV is set to honor these three players, in addition to many others including but not limited to Sheryl Swoopes and coach Tim Izzo in Springfield, Massachusetts at the 2016 Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame Enshrinement Ceremony. Full profiles for each inductee can be found on NBA.com’s official site.

According to Turner’s official press release, the ceremony will start at 4:30PM PST, with coverage starting an hour prior with the “2016 Hall of Fame Red Carpet Show,” hosted by Matt Winer and Steve Smith.

Beginning on Tuesday, the network honored Iverson, O’Neal and Yao by giving them each a day with a marathon of their best performances and also special interviews, even documenting their jacket presentation ceremony on Thursday.

However, the day they have all been waiting for is just around the corner, and fans can catch it on NBATV or NBA.com for a live stream and recap.
