The Hall of Fame (Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame) is the place to recognize and reward people who have contributed to basketball for their skill, popularity and importance. It was created in 1959 and was completed in 1968.

The official website states that the Hall of Fame (independent, non-profit) is dedicated to the people who promote, preserve and celebrate basketball at all levels.

Manu Ginbili will be the first Argentine to enter the NBA Hall of Fame. The Bahian is also part of the FIBA ​​Hall of Fame, a place where some Argentines are present: the players Oscar Furlong, Ricardo González, Fabricio Oberto, the coaches Jorge Canavesi, Rubn Magnano and the manager Luis Martín.

With Manu Ginbili there are four Latin Americans in the NBA Hall of Fame. The truth is that the rest are Brazilians and are part of what was done outside of the most famous league in the world: Oscar Schmidt, Ubiratan Pereira and Hortencia Marcari.

The Hall of Fame is located in Springfield, Massachusetts. It is the place that in 1981 had the Canadian James Naismith as the creator of basketball in a YMCA school. There are more than 400 members throughout its history.
