New Basketball Hall of Fame members: Lydija Alexeeva (USSR), Don Barksdale, Mel Daniels, Chet Walker & Phil Knight (Nike).

Im surprised it took Don this long to get in, he was the first black player/allstar



Jerry Colangelo announces fans will have chance to have say in Hall of Fame vote starting next year in coordination with ESPN.

Ugh.......

Finalists for enshrinement later on include: Reggie Miller, Dick Motta, Mo Cheeks, Bernard King, Bill Fitch, Don Nelson, Rick Pitino, Ralph S, and Jamaal Wilkes.

Mel Daniels was voted in by the ABA committee.

Mel Daniels was voted in by the ABA committee.

Im not opposed to Aba players doing it when they later dominated in the nba too ( gilmoer, erving, gervin, mcginnis, issell, B Jones etc).

But Daniels wasnt particulary good on Nba.

And he has no fiba achievementes either....so unless he had an amazing NCaa career i havent heard of.....shouldnt enter before those i mentioned.

It's the BASKETBALL hall of fame. The ABA wasn't any less of a pro league than the euro leagues or NCAA are.

For HoF he is, sure. But NBA all star, that often? Come on! Ridiculous.

China will be dominating our world more and more. Big trouble.
