Kidd, Nash, Hill, Cheeks make Hall of Fame

30 March 2018

The marquee members of the 2018 Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame class have been released, per Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

Former Philadelphia 76ers point guard Maurice Cheeks will also be inducted with the Class of 2018, according to the report from ESPN.

The Oakland native and former second-overall pick had 12,091 assists and is eighth all-time with 8.7 assists per game.

Kidd, who ranks third in National Basketball Association history with 107 triple-doubles, was a 10-time All-Star and won a championship with the 2010-11 Dallas Mavericks.

The formal announcement will come during this Final Four weekend. A 10-time NBA All-Star and five-time All-NBA First-team selection, Kidd has his No. 5 jersey retired by the Nets franchise. Then there's his NBA career: Rookie of the Year; 7-time All-Star; 5-time All-NBA.

But in the following months, multiple judges blocked Trump's ban as unconstitutional, preventing it from going into effect. This president will forever be remembered for his bigoted and spineless attacks on trans troops bravely serving our nation.

In fact, he and Nash briefly played together during the latter's first stint in Phoenix between 1996 and 1998. Making the All-Star team four times, along with being selected four times as a first-team All-NBA defensive player cemented Cheeks' reputation on the defensive side of the ball. Nash, one of 12 players to win two MVP awards, was an eight-time All-Star. He was the all-time leader in steals at the time of his retirement in 1993.

Jason Kidd is undoubtedly one of the greatest passers in the history of the game, and controlled the game from the point guard position in mercurial fashion over his 19 year career.

Hill's career was derailed by constant lower body injuries over the last twelve years of his career.

Jason Kidd was sacked by the Bucks as head coach in January and he's in the midst of his longest period away from basketball in his entire adult life.
