ELECTRICAL CONTRACTORS INC. HAS A REPUTATION FOR WORKING ON DIVERSE AND COMPLEX PROJECTS. « Inside the Shrine Some form of a basketball hall of fame has existed since 1968, honoring the game founded by James Naismith at a YMCA in Springfield, Mass. The game started simply, with players attempting to throw a round ball into a 10-foot-high goal. Though the first game’s pace was slow – the winning team scored one basket – basketball’s popularity spread rapidly. By 1894, the game was being played in countries as far away as China, India and France. The Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame opened in September 2002 with an induction ceremony for coaches Larry Brown, Lute Olson and Kay Yow in addition to players Drazen Petrovic and Magic Johnson. The ceremony was held in the Honors Ring, which overlooks a regulation-size basketball court where visitors can display their skills. “Located on the picturesque banks of the Connecticut River, the museum is a fitting shrine to the game Dr. Naismith invented more than a century ago,” the museum states. “The landmark structure is one of the world’s most distinctive monuments, punctuating the Springfield skyline and stirring the spirits of basketball fans everywhere. Hundreds of interactive exhibits share the spotlight with skills challenges, live clinics and shooting contests. And, of course, there is enough basketball history to impress the world’s most avid sports fans.” The Hall of Fame now has more than 300 inductees, including: • Charles Barkley • Michael Jordan • Larry Bird • Mike Krzyzewski • George Mikan • Elgin Baylor • Cheryl Miller • Kareem Abdul-Jabbar • Bob Knight • Clyde Drexler • Phil Jackson • Hakeem Olajuwon • Joe Dumars • Wilt Chamberlain • Kevin McHale • Patrick Ewing S ince 1971, Electrical Contractors Inc.
