The Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame kicked off All-Star Weekend Friday, naming 13 finalists for the Class of 2019 at Spectrum Center.

Webber has the resume: Four-time All-NBA player, five-time NBA All-Star, 1994 NBA Rookie of the Year, he averaged more than 20 points per game for nine seasons, and he led the NBA in rebounds per game in the 1998-1999 season. This is Sutton's sixth time as a finalist.

The Nets hired Fitch in August 1989 to replace Willis Reed, and the team won just 17 games in his first season on the bench.

Fitch and Sutton were the only two male coaches nominated with Johnson, Jones, Moncrief, Sikma and Westphal the remaining players to be named.

The 2019 John W. Bunn Lifetime Achievement Award recipients were Del Harris, an NBA coach for 35 years and 1995 NBA Coach of the Year, and Harry Glickman, one of the co-founders of the Portland Trail Blazers. Wallace is a four-time NBA All-Star (2003-06) and won the 2004 NBA championship in Detroit.
