(AP Summary) – Michael Jordan, maybe the greatest of them all, is taking his place alongside basketball’s other greats. Jordan was being enshrined in the Hall of Fame tonight, an honor that follows all the championship rings and MVP trophies he collected during his career. He joins David Robinson and John Stockton, a pair of his 1992 Dream Team teammates, and coaches Jerry Sloan and C. Vivian Stringer in a distinguished class.

“It all started with that little round ball. I think if you take that away from any of us, I’m pretty sure we would have struggled in life, because that’s how much the game meant to us,” Jordan said. The enshrinement ceremony took place at Springfield’s Symphony Hall, because Jordan was too big for the Hall of Fame. The move to the other building allowed for a crowd of about 2,600, more than double what the Hall can accommodate.
