Masochistic New York Knicks fans can tune in tonight to watch the 2012 Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony. With Reggie Miller highlighting a class of 12 members, the evening will surely feature a fair share of highlights at the Knicks' expense.
Miller, who tortured Knicks fans year after year with the Indiana Pacers, is joined by Don Nelson, the winningest coach in NBA history. Nelson's tenure with New York was short and ended with a mid-season resignation as Nelson jawed with Patrick Ewing just a year and a half after Pat Riley led the squad to the NBA Finals. Also representing New York's teams is Mel Daniels, elected off the ABA Committee, who ended his career with the New Jersey Nets. The other most notable player in the class is Ralph Sampson, who was three-time college basketball player of the year.
The ceremonies will be broadcast on NBATV, beginning at 6:30 p.m. with a red carpet show with the enshrinement ceremony beginning at 7:30 p.m.
