Here's what some of the biggest stars in the NBA have been saying about the 2018 Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame ceremony on social media...
On way to Springfield. So proud of my guys nashy and jkidd. It's an honor to say I played with two hall of famers! Unfortunately neither was in their prime....- Dirk Nowitzki (@swish41) September 6, 2018
Dirk on his friendship with Nash: "Here, my first couple of years (with the Mavs) he always took me out of the hotels and out of my home so I wouldn't get home sick. And he introduced me to a lot of his friends in his circle and I'm really thankful for that and I owe him a lot."- Dwain Price (@DwainPrice) September 7, 2018
More Dirk about Nash: "He's smart, he's funny, he's just a good dude. He's got a huge heart, he's always fitting in stuff for the community, always up for a good time, for jokes. There's never really a dull moment with him."- Dwain Price (@DwainPrice) September 7, 2018
