Bird and Johnson were inducted into the National Collegiate Hall of Fame on Sunday in Kansas City. The honor comes 30 years after Johnson's Michigan State team beat Bird and Indiana State in a game that reshaped college basketball.
Johnson will be joined by his coach, Jud Heathcote, and late Oklahoma star Wayman Tisdale will be represented by his wife, Regina.
Travis Grant, college basketball's career scoring leader, longtime coach Gene Bartow, former NCAA executive director Walter Byers and USA Basketball executive director Bill Wall also will be inducted.
