Video: Artis Gilmore Hall of Fame induction speech


While it may have taken longer than expected, the A-Train, former San Antonio Spurs player Artis Gilmore, has finally arrived in Springfield.

Gilmore had a very humble speech and even noted, that it was not about the journey of finally getting into the hall, it was about the destination.

Gilmore said he felt very lucky to be one of few players that have ever laced up their sneakers and played professionally to make it into the Hall of Fame.

Gilmore also spoke fondly of the days of the ABA, proclaiming, “We were showtime before there was showtime.”
