The Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall Of Fame will enshrine its 2012 class on Friday in Springfield, Mass., and the list of inductees includes some familiar names. Former Chicago Bulls forward Chet "The Jet" Walker will join head coach Don Nelson, five-time All-Star shooting guard Reggie Miller, three-time National College Player of the Year Ralph Sampson, and eight others as new members being honored for career achievements.
Reggie Miller and Don Nelson will get most of the attention -- and deservedly so -- but Walker scored 18,831 points (No. 55 all-time) over the course of 13 seasons and posted averages of 18.2 points and 7.1 rebounds per game on 47.0 percent shooting.
