But now, the two-time N.C.A.A. champion coach who was on the hot seat at Villanova after a slow three-year start to his tenure there is in the Hall himself. He had the ticket-selling job before getting into coaching at Rochester and turned that chance into a career like few others.

“Jay is one of the best coaches I’ve ever had, and one of the best people I’ve ever known,” said the former Villanova guard Kyle Lowry, now with the Toronto Raptors. “He treated me like a son, and he helped me become the man I am today. He is truly a special person.”

Bosh and Pierce were selected in their first year of eligibility; Webber had been a finalist in each of the last five years before finally getting the call. Bosh was a two-time champion in Miami whose résumé was still considered Hall-worthy even after his career ended abruptly — and with him still at an All-Star level — because of blood clots.

“Chris Bosh was the ultimate leader, teammate and winner,” Heat Coach Erik Spoelstra said. “He was a huge part of our success and always did it with real class, selflessness and professionalism. His accomplishments on the court earned him this great honor, but he is also a Hall of Fame quality person.”

Bosh was an 11-time All-Star, Pierce a 10-time selection and a 2008 N.B.A. champion with Boston, and Webber was a five-time All-Star pick after a college career in which he was part of the University of Michigan’s Fab Five.

“I’m just thankful, man,” Webber said.

Adelman’s teams won 1,042 games in the N.B.A., the ninth most in league history. Fitzsimmons was a two-time N.B.A. coach of the year who coached, among others, Charles Barkley, Jason Kidd and Steve Nash.

Of the now 140 players from the N.B.A. and A.B.A. that are enshrined in the Hall, none of them averaged fewer points than Wallace, who managed 5.7 per game for his career. He never had a 30-point game as a pro; his regular-season high was 23 points, his playoff high was 29 points.
