e third time. ... NolascSPRINGFIELD, Mass. Kevin Bieksa Ducks Jersey Authentic . -- On the eve of his induction, Allen Iverson was in vintage form during Thursdays festivities at the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.Iverson, one of the headliners in the 10-member Class of 2016, arrived tardy and missed a jacket ceremony, then engaged in an enthralling half-hour question-and-answer session with reporters that culminated with an emotional Iverson fighting back tears as he thanked those who aided his journey to the Hall.The Class of 2016 will be inducted Friday night at Springfield Symphony Hall.Inductees received new Naismith Orange jackets Thursday at the Halls Center Court, before taking part in individual news conferences.Organizers initially stalled the scheduled 2 p.m. start, before announcing Iverson would be tardy. Settling into his chair in front of a throng of reporters after the jacket event, Shaquille ONeal playfully needled Iversons no-show.I dont know how you miss this, ONeal said, before altering his voice to spoof Iversons infamous practice rant. Hall of Fame? Im a franchise player. You talking about the Hall of Fame?!About 90 minutes into the two-hour event, Iverson arrived wearing paint-splattered jeans, a black T-shirt, gold chains and a New York Yankees cap. He slipped into his Hall of Fame jacket before sitting down for media duties.Asked about his late arrival, Iverson said simply, Personal situation. Family. When pressed on the matter, he playfully barked, Thats the first thing you want to know about me? and steered the conversation to his basketball career.Iverson answered basketball-related questions for most of his session but commended a reporter who asked whether he ever had two-sport aspirations. He wondered aloud if he could have been the best player in the NFL.Toward the end of his session, Iverson was asked about those whom he played alongside. He fought back tears as he spoke.Thats the only thing that got me here is my teammates, he said, his voice trembling. My teammates and my coach. Thats the only reason Im here. All those guys sacrificed their game and sacrificed different things for me to be honored like this and what Ive done. Without them, it wouldnt have happened.Without my coaches putting me in a position to succeed. Mike Bailey did it my high school level, coach [John] Thompson did it at the college level. And Larry Brown molded me into an MVP and a Hall of Fame player. Without those guys I wouldnt be here. Without those guys, man. I didnt do this by myself, man. It was so many people, so many fans that came in there and cheered for me, night in and night out. So many people supported me and believed in me. They made it so easy for me to believe in myself, because I didnt want to let them down. I wanted my fans and my family and my friends to be proud of me.Iverson said he will save time in his Basketball Hall of Fame induction speech to mention the people who criticized him throughout his career, explaining that they are also responsible for molding the player who earned a spot in Springfield.?Even the ones that were negative in my career, obviously to try and prove them wrong was a motivation, he said.I had to overcome what they said about me. I had to overcome all that to be wearing this [Hall of Fame] jacket right now. The naysayers, they helped me, too.Iversons absence at the start of Thursdays festivities made ONeal the center of attention. Fellow inductee Sheryl Swoopes said ONeal offered her $1 million to fall while walking down the red carpet to receive her Hall of Fame jacket. Swoopes joked she considered it but passed when Shaq couldnt show her the actual money.ONeal produced one of the more comical moments of the jacket ceremony when he sprang from his seat to assist 7-foot-6 Yao Ming with putting on his oversized jacket.Asked about Fridays bigger stage, ONeal said he wouldnt feel any pressure to put on a show or keep things light at Fridays induction ceremony.Im just going to go be myself, he said. I dont think people expect me to give a serious speech with a lot of big words that I dont know what the pronunciation is. Im just going to be myself and speak from the heart.In addition to ONeal, Iverson, Ming and Swoopes, the Class of 2016 features Bulls owner Jerry Reinsdorf, ABA star Zelmo Beaty, 27-year NBA referee Darell Garretson, Michigan State coach Tom Izzo, John McLendon and Cumberland Posey.Inductees received new induction jackets that feature the Naismith Orange color, which maker Haggar Clothing Co. says represents the true hue of the basketball. Family members received jackets for those entering the Hall posthumously.The jackets also feature a silver lining with Basketball Hall of Fame and Haggar logos, antiqued brass buttons with dual logos, and a larger felted patch showcasing the Hall of Fame emblem on the left breast. Each blazer features the recipients name woven in and is handmade in Ohio.Presented with the first orange jacket after an unveiling, Hall of Fame chairman Jerry Colangelo quipped, Well certainly be seen wherever we are.The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Every sport has officials and they also have stories about hard work and sacrifice but their accomplishments are seldom recognized by anyone outside their inner circle.

Derbyshire 242 (Slater 110) and 16 for 2 trail Gloucestershire 331 (Mustard 107*, Dent 94, Palladino 5-74) by 73 runsScorecard Phil Mustards first century in first-class cricket for nearly five years put Gloucestershire on course for victory in the Division Two match against Derbyshire despite a five wicket haul from Tony Palladino.Mustards unbeaten 107 and 94 from Chris Dent lifted Gloucestershire to 331, a first innings lead of 89, and at the close of day two Derbyshire were in deep trouble at16 for 2.Palladino took his 350th first-class wicket and finished with 5 for 74, the 13th time he has taken five wickets in an innings, but it was Gloucestershires day.Derbyshire would have been the side looking to take control when Tom Milnes struck in the second over of the morning before Gloucestershire had added to the overnight total.Will Tavare was trying to take his bat away but edged to Harvey Hosein and with the inexperienced George Hankins in the middle against a ball only 14 overs old, Derbyshire had the chance to make significant inroads.But Hankins showed good judgement and sound temperament to stay with Dent for 15 overs until he was bowled by an arm ball from Callum Parkinson for 34.Gloucestershire were still a long way behind when Hamish Marshall was lbw to Palladino shuffling back and across six overs before llunch but Derbyshire had to wait another 24 overs for the next wicket. Cam Fowler Ducks Jersey. Billy Godleman switched his bowlers around but Dent and Mustard showed patience and selectivity to add 85 for the fifth wicket before Dent tossed away the chance of a century.He had dispatched Wayne Madsen way back over long on to move into the nineties but when he tried to reach three figures with another big shot off Parkinson, he top-edged to mid on.Dent knew he had let Derbyshire back in but Mustard and Jack Taylor tilted the advantage towards the visitors with a stand of 74 before the second new ball gave the game another twist.Taylor chipped to midwicket to give Palladino his milestone and the seamer found just enough away movement to bowl Craig Miles before David Payne edged a drive into his stumps.When Liam Norwell chased a wide one from Will Davis, Mustard was in danger of being stranded but he pulled Davis for his 13th four to reach an excellent hundred.Josh Shaw helped add a precious 31 runs before he became Palladinos fifth victim, leaving Derbyshire seven overs to negotiate and they lost Ben Slater lbw to Payne in the first before Billy Godleman edged Norwell to Mustard in the penultimate over.
