Yao, Shaq & Iverson Basketball Hall of Fame speeches

WATCH: Yao, Shaq & Iverson Basketball Hall of Fame speeches #Hoopclass16

Shaquille O’Neal and Allen Iverson entered the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame together on Friday night, both using nearly 30 minutes to mesmerize the audience with the unique styles that made one a successful pitchman and now television analyst and the other an icon beloved for keeping it way too real.

Yao Ming, Jerry Reinsdorf, Tom Izzo and Sheryl Swoopes also got to bask in the three-hour induction ceremony, but the night was owned by the two legends who hogged the most time and attention; the two legends who shared nothing in terms of physical stature but whose personalities dominated so much of the era between Michael Jordan and LeBron James.
