Jason Kidd, Steve Nash, Grant Hill, Maurice Cheeks and Tina Thompson to enter Basketball Hall of Fame, reports say

A little over a month ago, during All-Star Weekend in Los Angeles, the finalists for the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame Class of 2018 were announced. In just a few days, the members of the class will be formally announced at the NCAA Final Four. But, as is the case with most things these days, we’re already hearing some of the names ahead of time. 

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, the following players have been informed that they will be inducted into the Hall of Fame: Steve Nash, Jason Kidd, Maurice Cheeks and Grant Hill. That list includes two legendary point guards, arguably one of the NBA’s most under-appreciated players ever, and a giant what if in the world of basketball. In addition, ESPN’s Chris Haynes reported that WNBA legend Tina Thompson will be inducted.
