Basketball Hall of Famers get orange jackets with induction

September 8, 2016

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. — The Masters has its green jacket. Members of the Pro Football Hall of Fame get a yellow one.

 

Now inductees to the basketball Hall of Fame will be presented with a "Naismith Orange" blazer when they are enshrined in hoops immortality.

 

The Hall unveiled the new jackets on Thursday before presenting a 2016 class of inductees that includes Shaquille O'Neal, Allen Iverson and Yao Ming. Basketball hall inductees have long been presented with a blue blazer.

 

"We'll certainly be seen wherever we are," said Hall chairman Jerry Colangelo, who was presented with the first jacket.

 

The American-made jacket by Haggar features a Hall of Fame crest on the left breast and special buttons.
