Steve Nash, Jason Kidd, Grant Hill to enter Basketball Hall of Fame

Adjust Comment Print

Three first-timers on the ballot are being enshrined this year; Jason Kidd, Grant Hill and Steve Nash.

The 2018 Basketball Hall of Fame class is going to be a great one.

Hill, who played college at Duke, was drafted by the Pistons in 1994 with the third overall pick.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski (duh) shared the news on Twitter late Wednesday morning. Over 19 seasons with the Pistons, Suns, Magic and Clippers, he averaged 16.7 points, 6.0 rebounds, and 4.1 assists per game. The South African born PG is also one of only seven members of the exclusive 50-40-90 club, for which you gain entry by shooting at least 50% for field goals, 40% for three-pointers, and 90% for free throws during an entire National Basketball Association regular season. During his illustrious career, Nash played six seasons with the Dallas Mavericks, 10 with the Phoenix Suns, and had a two-year stint with the Los Angeles Lakers before his retirement in 2015.

Kidd and Nash have been known as some of the best passers of the '90s and early 2000s, both leading the league in assists five times and dominating the passing game for the better part of an entire decade.

Nash was an eight-time All-Star and won two MVP awards in his 18-year career. He averaged 14.3 points and 8.5 assists per game for his career. Still, during a 19-year career, he made seven All-Star appearances and was an All-NBA first team honoree in 1996-97. Nash now serves as general manager of the Canadian national team, and has a minor player development role with the Golden State Warriors.

Kidd was named an All-Star 10 times during his playing career.
