Technically, Dave Cowens is the only Celtic post Russell-pre Larry in the Hall of Fame. I don't count Hondo since, he played with Russell since 1962.

Larry era Celtics there are 6 and Russell has a bunch (Cousy/Sharman/Heinsohn/Jones boys/Hondo/Ramsey/Sanders and others who played a few years and are in the Hall in Baily Howell, Clyde Lovellette, Arnie Risen and Andy Phillip.)

The Hondo/Cowens/White era, White should be added.

Yea I agree with that, now that I think about it, Jo Jo was a really good player and has 2 rings and 1 FMVP to his name, plenty of all-star games too and a couple of 2nd all-nba teams, he was never the clear-cut best player on a championship team but still.. when you look at players already in he should make it but there are a few bigger snubs.

Of the recent players in Hardaway, KJ, Zo and Richmond, I can see all of them getting in and I can see all of them missing the cut In Reggie Miller's first year up, he didn't even make the finalist.

Great mention! I totally agree, however this is the guy that sued the NBA, so Iono...

Slick Leonard's speech is going to make me cry. Rajah, Mel, Reggie, all those guys getting inducted cut me deep. But Slick's like the awesome uncle to every Pacers fan. The franchise probably wouldn't exist without him and Nancy.

Scott Howard-Cooper: Chris Webber was not nominated for the Hall of Fame. That is usually done by a former team or college, but anyone can do it. No one did.

Surprised no one nominated him, victim of Sacto's regime change probably, but whatever. Webber was great but not a HOFer.

Still no freaking Nikos Galis?



I guess he will get elected next year. Since Vlade Divac got elected, then Oscar Schmidt, and now Sarunas Marciulionis.

I cannot imagine who in the freaking world is left to elect instead of him...........

It's funny though, because for years in this forum I said Schmidt and Marciulionis should be in the hall of fame and 95%+ of the people in this forum called me a troll and said I should be banned for saying that.

Now they are both in there. Once again proving who the REAL trolls in this forum are.

It's his first time being eligible, he will get in.

Reggie Miller wasn't even on the ballot the first time he was eligible.

Amazing how Mitch Richmond still isn't in. One of the most consistent players ever to play the game. Not his fault he played on shit teams.

What Kizzle is implying:

Everything from Webber's stint with Michigan has been erased. Games, wins, etc etc.

The sanctions on him pretty much is making like he never existed on the Fab Five.

Chris Webber and the Fab Five are stricken from the record books, so technically he didn't play college ball.
