Vlade Divac will be inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame on Friday. It’s a tremendous honor, and certainly well-deserved. Divac was not only a fantastic NBA player, but an extraordinarily accomplished international player and ambassador for the game. Vlade was selected by the International Committee for induction, but it also gives us an opportunity to recall what a tremendous player Vlade was for the Sacramento Kings.

The induction ceremonies will be aired on NBA TV beginning at 3:30 PM PT. Vlade will be introduced by Jerry West. Former Kings coach Paul Westphal is also being inducted, and is being introduced by Charles Barkley, so you know that’s going to be must-see TV.

From all of us here at Sactown Royalty, a huge congratulations to Vlade Divac. Thank you for all the wonderful memories from your time with the Kings, and all of your contributions to the game.
