Encyclopedia > Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame

The Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame honors players who have shown exceptional skill at basketball, all-time great coaches and referees, and other major contributors to the game. A few entire teams have been inducted as well, including the Buffalo Germans, the New York Renaissance and the Harlem Globetrotters.

It was established in 1959, with fundraising leading to an actual building opened to the public on February 17, 1968 at Springfield College in Springfield, Massachusetts, United States. In 1985 a new hall off-campus was opened near downtown Springfield on the east bank of the Connecticut River.

On September 28, 2002, the Hall of Fame found its third home in a new $45 million, 80,000 square foot (7,400 mē) shrine to the sport. The new facility's architecture features a large silver semi-spherical structure several stories high.
