Exciting Changes Coming to the New York City Basketball Hall of Fame's Website

Posted on August 9, 2023

The New York City Basketball Hall of Fame is thrilled to announce that our website is currently undergoing a comprehensive re-construction to provide an enhanced online experience for all basketball enthusiasts. We are excited to unveil a fresh and user-friendly platform that will showcase the legacy of basketball in the Big Apple like never before. The revamped website is set to be completed no later than August 31, 2023, and will feature an array of exciting additions that will captivate fans and celebrate the rich history of the sport.

A Rich Legacy Celebrated Online

The New York City Basketball Hall of Fame has a profound mission – to honor and commemorate the remarkable contributions of basketball players, coaches, referees, promoters, and other essential figures who have shaped the sport over the past 120 years. The hallmark of our induction process is the rigorous selection, driven by a comprehensive voting process. Each year, a distinguished select committee, consisting of Hall of Famers, media personalities, and coaches, nominate and induct deserving candidates into this prestigious hall of fame.

Reviving the Historical Journey

The history of the NYC Basketball Hall of Fame is a tapestry woven with the achievements and milestones of basketball’s greatest luminaries. From the grand inaugural class inducted in 1990, featuring legends like Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Billy Cunningham, and Coach Arnold “Red” Auerbach, to the passing of visionary founders Robert A. “Bob” Williams and Howard “Garf” Garfinkel in 2017, the journey of the Hall of Fame is one of dedication, passion, and reverence for the sport.

New Leadership, New Era

As we move forward into this exciting phase, the Hall of Fame is under the leadership of a newly constituted board, approved on May 24, 2023. Gail Marquis, Ronnie Nunn, and Mel Davis, the remaining Legacy Board members, are committed to preserving the integrity of the Hall’s mission while embracing the digital age to bring the story of New York City basketball to a global audience.

Anticipation Builds

With the upcoming re-construction of our website, we are eager to provide an enriched digital experience that reflects the grandeur of New York City basketball. Whether you’re a die-hard fan, a history buff, or simply curious about the sport’s evolution, the new website will be your gateway to exploring a treasure trove of basketball history, accomplishments, and stories that have shaped the game in this iconic city.

Stay tuned as we put the finishing touches on this exciting transformation. We invite you to mark your calendars for August 31, 2023, and join us in celebrating the unveiling of the revitalized New York City Basketball Hall of Fame website – where the past, present, and future of basketball meet in the heart of the city that never sleeps.
