The 2021 class will enter the Springfield legends on the night between Saturday and Sunday. The list of “companions” is equally excellent
Michael Jordan, Kevin Garnett, Larry Brown. It is not the list of those elected to the Hall of Fame, which on the Italian night between Saturday and Sunday will add the 2021 class to the legends of Springfield, but it is the names of the “presenters” who will introduce the new arrivals, in a ritual that is an integral part of the ceremony . A ritual that enriches the enshrinement on Saturday with further charm.
The Hall of Fame protocol requires that each new entry be introduced by someone already included among the immortals of basketball. It is a kind of rite of passage, as if someone had to “vouch” for the newcomer. He is a silent companion, who goes up on stage without speaking but remains next to those who enter among the immortals throughout their stay on stage.
Here are the main presenters of the 2021 ceremony
Kevin Garnett per Paul Pierce
Ray Allen e Pat Riley per Chris Bosh
Larry Brown per Ben Wallace

Charles Barkley, Julius Erving, Spencer Haywood, Alonzo Mourning, Bill Walton, Rick Welts for Bill Russell (joins as coach after being there since 1975 as a player)
