DALLAS -- David Stern, who just retired in February from being the NBA commissioner for the past 30 years, was the main headliner in a list of players -- and one team -- who were announced Monday as inductees into the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame.
The ceremony was held at the Omni Dallas hotel.
Besides Stern, others who received their 2014 hall of fame honors include former NBA players Alonzo Mourning, Mitch Richmond and Sarunas Marciulionis, ex-college coaches Nolan Richardon and Gary Williams, and former player/coach Bob "Slick'' Leonard. Former NBA players Nat "Sweetwater'' Clifton and Guy Rodgers were both announced as inductees posthumously.
Also, the Immaculate University women's basketball team of the early 1970s earned their induction papers.
The induction ceremony will be held Aug. 7-9 in Springfield, MA.
