Former NBA great Michael Brown will sign autographs at the Hoop Hall Experience (HHX), the official Basketball Hall of Fame’s touring exhibit, at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas at 3 – 4 p.m. Saturday, May 30.
Towering at six feet nine inches, Brown, a former power forward and center, owned the court at George Washington University in the early 1980s, earning the nickname “The New Washington Monument.” After four years of college ball, he was selected by the Chicago Bulls in the third round of the 1985 NBA Draft. Brown played 11 seasons (1986-1997) in the NBA as a member of the Bulls, the Utah Jazz, the Minnesota Timberwolves, the Philadelphia 76ers and the Phoenix Suns before retiring with career totals of 3,130 points and 2,762 rebounds. Brown also served as an assistant coach for the Chicago Bulls for a short time primarily to work with the Bulls’ young centers and forwards.
Now, Brown has hung up his sneakers and whistle to focus on his charity, The Embracing Project, a nonprofit organization dedicated to the development of youth. The organization focuses on preventing youth violence through outreach educational programs, drug and health awareness and group activities.
Located on the mezzanine level, the HHX is where the story of basketball comes to life in more than 17,000 square feet of fun. From the heart-pounding surround sound “Big Shots” theater to state-of-the-art interactive displays, the attraction has something for basketball lovers of all ages. Fans can enjoy rare memorabilia such as the jersey Wilt Chamberlain wore when he scored 100 points and the piece of floor where Michael Jordan took his last shot and more. Visitors can see the greatest players, craziest games and most inspiring coaches come to life in HHX. Broken into six distinct zones, the Hoop Hall Experience is the ultimate basketball exhibition.
