Basketball HOF finalists 2009

Recommended Posts

MJ, Stock, the Admiral, Nellie, Sloan and the rest make one hell of a HOF Class.

PHOENIX (AP)—Michael Jordan, John Stockton and David Robinson are among 16 finalists for the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.


NBA coaches Don Nelson and Jerry Sloan and Rutgers women’s coach C. Vivian Stringer also made the cut on Friday from a field of 164 nominees, as did former NBA stars Dennis Johnson, Chris Mullin and Bernard King and two-time WNBA MVP Cynthia Cooper.


“I’ll step out on a limb and speak for all of them and say thank you,” said Robinson, the former San Antonio stalwart and lone finalist who attended the announcement during NBA All-Star Game festivities. “We understand the honor that goes along with being nominated. We know everyone doesn’t get in.”


The election announcement will be on April 6 at the NCAA Final Four in Detroit, with enshrinement in September at the Hall of Fame in Springfield, Mass.

This is whether or not I think they will get elected, not if me, personally, would vote them in.

Al Attles and Red Kerr-yes
