Vlade Divac. Hall of Famer.
While that was formally announced back in April, the big day came on Friday when he was inducted into the Hall and made his acceptance speech on Friday night. He was presented by Jerry West.
Divac was elected as an international player and for his global influence on the game. He had a 16-year NBA career and made one All-Star team, but is best remembered for his time as a Laker (traded to Charlotte in the deal for the draft rights to Kobe Bryant), playing with the peak Sacramento Kings, and for flopping. Plus the occasional cigarette.
Congrats to one of the good guys around the league.
