2019 Basketball HOF Inductees
« on: April 06, 2019, 01:42:30 PM »
Woj was leaking them last night so I already knew that Moncrief and Westphal were in, but here's the full list.

North American committee:
Sidney Moncrief (player)
Paul Westphal (player)
Jack Sikma (player)
Bobby Jones (player)
Bill Fitch (coach)
Tennessee A&I 1957-59 men's basketball teams

Women's committee: Teresa Weatherspoon (player)
International committee: Vlade Divac (player)
Contributors' committee: Al Attles (contributor)
Early African American Pioneers committee: Chuck Cooper (player)
Veterans' committee: Carl Braun (player)
Women's Veterans' committee: Wayland Baptist University 1948-82 women's basketball teams

This was the year of the overlooked 70's-80's players, I guess.  Chris Webber is a bridesmaid once again and Ben Wallace doesn't get the nod on his first ballot.  Rudy T misses out again, as well.  I don't know if I should find it as funny as I do that Vlade is in and C-Webb isn't, but I do.  Also it's kind of sad that Chuck Cooper (first black player to be taken in the draft) needed a select committee to be posthumously inducted.

I said it on the Kings board I mod at, and I'll say it here: Webb's not getting in until he makes nice with Michigan, and the rest of the Fab Five.
