The National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame welcomed two of the sport’s all-time greats as part of its 2014 class on Tuesday.

Four-time NBA champion Shaquille O’Neal and two-time NCAA champion Grant Hill joined Darrell Griffith at the top of a very unique and diverse class. The induction ceremony, which will be held in November, will also see Zelmo Beaty, an NAIA star at Prairie View A&M.

Additionally, two head coaches LSU’s Dale Brown and Maryland’s Gary Williams—both of whom reached the Final Four twice; basketball coach and author Glenn Wilkes Sr. and Five-Star Basketball Camp founder Howard Garfinkle join as 2014 Hall of Fame inductees.

The highlight of the class, however, is Shaquille O’Neal and Grant Hill.

First up, the draft—which had some hilarious bickering between co-GMs Chris Webber and Kenny Smith over the first pick of the draft. Webber selected New Orleans Pelicans big man Anthony Davis without consulting his elder co-GM.

Team Hill, helmed by co-GMs Grant Hill and Charles Barkley, then made the second pick.
