Three players and a coach with Celtics connections were elected to the Basketball Hall of Fame and will be enshrined in the Hall in Springfield, September. Seriously, " Moncrief said of Sutton, for whom he gave credit for instilling in him the fundamentals that carried him to professional success. In his 12 National Basketball Association seasons, he averaged 15.6 points and 4.4 assists per game, including more than 20 points per game for five consecutive seasons. He led the Boston Celtics to a championship in 1981 and holds the highest winning percentage in Celtics history. The 6-4 Westphal, who averaged 15.6 ppg in 12 seasons, later won 318 games as an NBA coach, leading the Suns to the NBA Finals in 1993. In addition to the Celtics, he also coached the expansion Cleveland Cavaliers, Houston Rockets, New Jersey Nets and LA Clippers, and he took all five teams to the playoffs. Cooper was selected by the Hall's special direct-elect Early African-American Pioneers Committee. He retired as the team's career scoring leader with 10,449 points, which still ranks fifth. The five-time All-Star died in 2010 at age 82. Jones started his career in Denver when the Nuggets were in the ABA and he made the ABA All-Star team, All-Rookie Team, and two times was on the league's All-Defensive Team. He was a member of Philadelphia's championship team in 1983.

Two teams will also be honored: the Tennessee A&I (now Tennessee State) men's teams from 1957 to 1959 - the first college sides to win three consecutive championships - and the Wayland Baptist Flying Queens, which won 131 straight games from 1953 to 1958. The program, which was the first four-year college to provide full scholarships for 13 female players, also won 19 titles - 10 AAU and nine WNIT.
