Michael Jordan to be inducted into FIBA Hall of Fame

6 Comments

Michael Jordan had a fabulous international career.

He won gold medals in the 1984 and 1992 Olympics, the latter as part of the Dream Team.

Those accomplishments will get him yet another honor.

FIBA release:

Michael Jordan, arguably the greatest player of all-time, headlines a list of nine world class basketball personalities from seven different countries that make up the 2015 Class of Inductees to be enshrined into FIBA’s Hall of Fame on Saturday 19 September.

Along with Jordan, the contingent of players also includes national icons Antoine Rigaudeau of France, Lithuania’s Sarunas Marciulionis, Vladimir Tkachenko of Russia/Ukraine, Cuba’s Ruperto Herrera Tabio and Anne Donovan of the USA.

They are joined by legendary coach Jan Stirling of Australia.

Jordan is obviously already a member of the Basketball Hall of Fame, located in Springfield, Mass. This is a different, lesser-known Hall of Fame.

So, how prestigious is this?

Maybe Jordan will get the FIBA Hall of Fame to update its website for the first time since 2013.
