The Australian Basketball Hall of Fame was instituted by the National Basketball League (NBL) in 1998 as the NBL Hall of Fame as part of their 20th birthday celebrations. The NBL initiated the Hall of Fame to recognise the outstanding players, coaches, referees and contributors to the league.

In 2010, the Basketball Australia Hall of Fame and National Basketball League Hall of Fame were united under the ‘Australian Basketball Hall of Fame’ to acknowledge the restructure of the NBL and Basketball Australia into a single, united governing body.[1]

In order to be eligible for induction into the Hall of Fame, NBL candidates must have fulfilled the following criteria:

  • Players must have made an outstanding contribution to the NBL, have been retired for a minimum of four seasons, and have played 100 NBL games or more.
  • Coaches must have made an outstanding contribution to the NBL, have been retired for at least four seasons, and have been an NBL head coach for 10 seasons or more.
  • Referees must have made an outstanding contribution to the league and have been retired for at least four seasons.
  • Contributors must have made an outstanding contribution to the NBL, and may be elected at any time.

Inductees are listed in alphabetical order and both male and female inductees are listed.[2]
