The Naismith Memorial Hall of Fame is a special place in the world of Basketball. Becoming an enshrined member means the person really excelled throughout their career.
NBA stars Shaquille O'Neal, Yao Ming and Allen Iverson were part of a very impressive class of 2016 that included WNBA star Sheryl Swoopes and Chicago Bulls owner Jerry Reinsdorf.
L.A. Clippers star Chris Paul recently said Iverson had a huge impact on his career and he was in attendance in Springfield, Massachusetts as The Answer joined the greats of basketball.
Paul was involved in a chat alongside Jalen Rose and others during the celebration and spoke about what the game of basketball meant to him.
The point guard, who admitted to being an emotional person, was overcome as he explained how the game had bettered his life.
"I just want to say this as a current player in the NBA right now," he said. "And my family knows I'm sort of the emotional one in our family, today was my first day of having the opportunity to come here [Hall of Fame] and it was kind of touching."
As he fought back tears, Paul continued: "If not for this game, I'm not here, if not for this game, my family is not in the position that we're in and I'm so grateful for this game and what it's done for me and my family.
"It really hit me today being here around all the history."
