Former all-star hoopsters Grant Hill, Jason Kidd and Steve Nash are being elected into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame for the class of 2018.
According to an ESPN report, the entire class of 2018 has yet to be announced but sources say former Philadelphia 76ers point guard Maurice Cheeks will also be inducted.
Kidd and Nash, two of the most prolific point guards to ever play in the NBA, rank second and third, respectively, in career assists. Former Utah Jazz point man John Stockton, a Hall of Famer himself, ranks first. Kidd, a 10-time All-Star who led the Dallas Mavericks to the NBA title in 2011, also ranks third in career triple-doubles with 107.
Nash, a two-time league MVP (one of 12 players two win the MVP award twice) out of Canada, was selected to the All-NBA first team three times in his career. He played 18 years in the league with the Phoenix Suns, Dallas Mavericks and Los Angeles Lakers. Nash currently works as a player development consultant for the Golden State Warriors.
Hill, meanwhile, was the most accomplished college player of the bunch. He won two national championships and was twice selected to the All-America team while at Duke. In his 19-year NBA career, Hill was a 7-time All-Star.
