Former NBA stars Shaquille O’Neal and Allen Iverson are among 10 notables who were elected Monday to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame’s class of 2016, the Washington Post reports.
Iverson spent his 14-year career playing with the Philadelphia 76ers, Detroit Pistons, Denver Nuggets and Memphis Grizzlies.

O’Neal was a four-time NBA champion during his own 19-year career, during which he played for six teams: the Orlando Magic, Lakers, Miami Heat, Phoenix Suns, Cleveland Cavaliers and Boston Celtics.
