Now Entering the Hall

I haven’t done any research on this whatsoever, but this year’s contenders to the Basketball Hall of Fame may just be the best class ever. Headlining the list of first-time eligible players is some guy who goes by the name of Michael Jeffrey Jordan, you might have heard of him, I hope he makes it! Anytime you have the greatest player of all time in the mix that’s going to up the quality of the class, but let’s look at who else is eligible and likely to make it.

How about Mr. Consistent, John Stockton? Sure, he only holds the records, by a healthy margin, for career steals AND assists, despite no titles I don’t think there is much question that he’s in.

Joining his fellow Dream Teamers is the Admiral himself, former San Antonio Spur David Robinson. Sure, he wasn’t able to win a championship without Tim Duncan, but when the Twin Towers were paired together and going strong no one could stop them, and they did have that pretty healthy run of championships. Robinson also is by all accounts, one of the nicest people in the game and hey, he served in the Navy too so, that’s pretty awesome.

Other people eligible include another Dream Teamer, Chris Mullin, former Celtics great the late Dennis Johnson, Don Nelson as a coach, the Utah Jazz’ Jerry Sloan, Rutger’s women’s coach C. Vivian Stringer and Washington Bullet Bernard King.

All in all, a pretty damn dope cast of characters. I’d pay money to watch them have a pick-up game, even now.
