HALL OF FAME
A BIG 5 TRADITION

Since 1973, the Big 5 has been selecting players, coaches, broadcasters, sportswriters and others who have made significant contributions to the Big 5 and its history to become members of the Philadelphia Big 5 Hall of Fame. Each year, inductees are honored at a luncheon on the Palestra floor, and then enshrined at halftime of a designated Big 5 game.
