    An outstanding class coming in.

    I'm kind of surprised that Rodman got in, given what an anti-establishment / just generally weird dude he became. However, I definitely think he deserves to be there based on merit.

    I began a thread on here some time back that got heated at times about whether Worm belonged. I said that he did. I'm not surprised. I'm really pleased that Herb McGee made it. A fine coach and a great guy.

    I'm glad the voters looked past all the BS and put Rodman in.

    I wouldn't go that far. I always questioned his status on the dream team. He was a great college player. As a pro, Mullin was better than most. Put up some good numbers with the Warriors.

    To me, Reggie Miller is the Fred McGriff of the NBA. Very, very good player, and consistently near all-star level for 12 of his 18 years. Doesn't change the fact that his peak wasn't as great as you might remember - One year of 24 ppg, one year of 22 ppg, and three at 21 ppg. There isn't much in his accessory stats that prop him up - Almost no blocks, about a steal a game, and an average amount of rebounds and assists. If you're into PER, his floated between 18 and 20 most years.

    I am surprised that Mullin is in, but Miller isn't. But I'd argue for excluding both as opposed to enshrining both. And hey, nice to see Artis Gilmore get in there finally.

    The Kentucky Colonels and the ABA hurt Gilmore's selection.

    Yeah, I imagine it was strictly because of his ABA association that it took so long for him to get into the Hall of Fame.

    Actually it did play a part. I've heard a couple of HOF'ers - Julius Erving and Moses Malone - say that.

    Rodman is out looking for the perfect evening gown for the occasion. :D
