We are just days away from the start of the Basketball Hall of Fame’s enshrinement weekend and a Springfield-based photographer will soon be providing some early excitement before those festivities tip-off.
Basketball is a big deal in and around Springfield. Home to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, legends and all-time greats are forever engraved, with photos showing their talent on the court and local photographer Chris Marion has been taking photos of current and past players for NBA Entertainment during the last 12 seasons.
“I would never have guessed this in a million years. I’m a kid from Springfield and here I am traveling with the league and this close to these mega superstars, these larger-than-life heroes,” Marion explained.
