The Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, located in Springfield, Massachusetts, honors players who have shown exceptional skill at basketball, all-time great coaches, referees, and other major contributors to the sport. It is named after Dr. James Naismith, who conceived the sport in 1891; he was inducted into the Hall as a contributor in 1959.[1] The Player category has existed since the beginning of the Hall of Fame. For a person to be inducted to the Naismith Hall as a player, they must be "fully retired for five years". If a player retired for a short period, then "his/her case and eligibility is reviewed on an individual basis"

As part of the inaugural class of 1959, four players were inducted; 156 more individuals have been inducted as players since then, with the most recent class entering on September 8, 2013.[2] Three players have also been inducted as coaches: John Wooden in 1973, Bill Sharman in 2004, and Lenny Wilkens in 2004.

The player inductees in the Class of 2013 were Roger Brown, Richie Guerin, Bernard King, Gary Payton, Oscar Schmidt, and Dawn Staley.[2]

The Hall has also announced four player members of its induction class of 2014. Šarūnas Marčiulionis and Guy Rodgers were announced on February 14,[3] and Mitch Richmond and Alonzo Mourning were announced on April 7.[4] All four will enter the Hall on August 8.
