The Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame honors players who have shown extreme skill at basketball, all-time great coaches and referees, and other major contributors to the game. A few entire teams have been inducted as well, including the Buffalo Germans, the New York Renaissance and the Harlem Globetrotters.

It was established in 1959, with fundraising leading to an actual building opened to the public on February 17, 1968 at Springfield College. In 1985 a new hall off-campus was opened in Springfield, Massachusetts.
