The bronze statue features the inventor of basketball surrounded by a trio of children. While legendary players such as Jordan, Barkley, and Byrd have made the sport world-famous it still remains a favorite of children of all ages - and perhaps that was the ultimate goal of Naismith. The statue was created by the official Hall of Fame sculptor, Brian Hanlon. (Submitted by Shirley Beauchemin Thurston)
