Allen Iverson Thanks Favorite Rappers In HOF Speech: Yao Ming Cracked Practice Joke

By HHL Editors

Three legends -- two huge and one not so much -- were inducted into the Basketball Hall Of Fame last night.

That would be Shaquille O'Neal, Yao Ming and Allen Iverson.

Yao kicked things off in Springfield, and he did so by landing an Iverson "practice" joke.

During Iverson's speech, he paid tribute to some of his favorite rappers and a mysterious gloved man.

“I want to thank Biggie Smalls, Redman, Jadakiss, Tupac and Michael Jackson for being my theme music throughout my career," Iverson said.

During Shaq's speech, he had some fun with Kobe Byrant.

"Kobe Bryant: A guy that would push me and help me win three titles in a row," Shaq said. "He would also help me get pushed off the team and traded to Miami."

Congrats to three greats on their induction.
