Dirk Nowitzki enshrined in the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame

Dirk Nowitzki is now officially enshrined as a member of the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame. He led a packed class of stars from across the basketball world and gave one of the final two speeches in what ended up being a fantastic evening celebrating the game of basketball.

The newest Hall members received their jackets and rings Friday in a special ceremony, with Saturday night featuring a red carpet walk and official enshrinement.
