Israel’s championship-winning basketball team Maccabi Tel Aviv is to be honored for its accomplishments at the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in the United States, the Web site Israel21c.org reported. The exhibition opens in May and will coincide with Israel’s 60th birthday. Maccabi Tel Aviv, which won multiple championships in Israel and Europe, will be the first Israeli team to be presented in an exhibition at the Hall of Fame in Springfield, Massachusetts. The Hall of Fame sees millions of visitors every year who come to honor the greats of the basketball world. Part of the Maccabi Tel Aviv display will remain as a permanent exhibition in the Hall of Fame, a testament to the strength and competitiveness of Israeli sports worldwide.
