Sneaker Hall of Fame

When we think of the NBA Hall of Fame, images of Dr. Naismith and the peach basket pop into most person's head. This was a game that was played all-the-while with players wearing leather shoes, not sneakers. Wow, alot has changed since 1891.

Well, we received information about the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame Class of 2008 and they are as follows:

Hakeem Olajuwon
Patrick Ewing
Adrian Dantley
Pat Riley
Cathy Rush
Dick Vitale
Bill Davidson

Congratulations to all the inductees and we'll see you in Springfield, MA on September 5, 2008.

Now, onto the other news as it relates to sneakers.

Two players on this list are well known for their footwork but, one in particular, became known for terrorizing opponents with a move that simply became known as "The Dream Shake".

Check out some of their sneakers they wore while in the League:

Hakeem Olajuwon

Patrick Ewing
