IN:

Charles Barkley
Joe Dumars
Dominique Wilkens
Geno Auriemma (UConn Women's Coach)
Dave Gavitt (Former Head Coach, Providence/Former Big East Commish)

WAIT TILL NEXT YEAR:

Adrian Dantley
Ralph Sampson
Don Nelson
Gene Keady

I do beleive that this year has the potential of featuring the greatest HoF induction speech of any sport or non-sport ever, and yes...that factors in The Iron Shiek from last year.

"So Charles Barkley, Dominique Wilkins and Joe Dumars walk into a bar..."

"Oh, God, please don't tell that joke."

"Okay."

Hee, but seriously, I wanna see Charles Barkley's induction speech! They'd better televise it!

Nice to see Gavitt get in in his first year of eligibility. Changed the landscape of college basketball by forming the Big East, and would have won a national championship in '73 (Walton wouldn't have gone 21-22 in the title game) if Barnes didn't go down(or take a dive on orders from the Patriarcha Family) after Providence took a double digit lead in the first half of the national semis vs. Memphis State.

I'm sure Kenny, Magic, Reggie and Ernie will be rolling over in their graves afterwards. ;)

Before they even die? Hee, if Charles Barkley's speech is half as hilarious as I'm sure it's gonna be, I wouldn't doubt it!

Sorry for ther late response to this, but I think you could add Dennis Johnson to the "Wait till next year" list.



"Speaking of Thomases, I loved your recent Atrocious GM Summit column, although I think that you flatter Isiah Thomas far too much by suggesting that he is merely one of a number of atrocious GMs. The truth is that Rob Babcock and Billy King are Einstein next to him. The mess he is creating right now in New York will be studied by business school students 50 years from now alongside Enron and pets.com."
