Re: Hall of Fame nominees
Dang, normally I get referred to as an Iverson hater and a Dantley synchophant. Heck, I'm getting ripped in an active thread now for saying a Dantley led team would beat the Isiah led team with more (but less efficient) great scorers. I always liked Dantley being a Washingtonian and following DeMatha basketball; I admire his scoring, efficiency, and heart.
That said, he deserves to be in the HOF more than Dominique Wilkens, Mark Aquirre, or Bernard King, less than Alex English or Larry Bird among his peers. He does not deserve to be in ahead of Artis Gilmore who was a much superior player; Artis deserves to be in the HOF ahead of Patrick Ewing for that matter. I have to assume Artis is being blackballed for some issure relating to the ABA since he is nowhere close to a marginal HOF candidate.
If you have to shoot, shoot, don't talk
