(ECNS) -- The first Chinese Basketball Hall of Fame has entered the nomination stage, and all related work is underway.
Yao Ming, chairman of the Chinese Basketball Association, spoke at a media conference on July 28 that the founding of the Hall of Fame has achieved a lot of progress with the help of many experts. Just a while ago, we announced that we had made a substantial breakthrough in establishing the association of the Hall of Fame.
Yao said that many international sports have a Hall of Fame, but it is a relatively new event in China, and he hopes more people would embrace this platform.
The Hall of Fame is committed to promoting and preserving the game of basketball in China. The Hall of Fame inductees will include players, coaches, referees, and outstanding contributors, etc.
