Jordan is the Head of this Class!

You’ve probably heard that the greatest baller of all time is being inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame Friday night, along with other former greats David Robison, John Stockton and Jerry Sloan. Oh yeah, there’s also a women’s college basketball coach being inducted too, but really, who cares? Sorry Vivian!

This may be the most decorated class to enter the Hall in decades. But what I find interesting is the list of presenters.

Jordan has David Thompson?

Stockton has Isiah Thomas?

Jerry Sloan has Sir Charles?

And Robinson has George Gervin?

Okay, that last one actually makes sense. But the others seem kind of odd to me. I realize new inductees are obliged to ask current members of the Hall to present them, but really, John Stockton couldn’t think of anyone better then Isiah Thomas? And Michael goes with his childhood idol instead of Dean Smith or Phil Jackson? And what does Charles Barkley have to do with Jerry Sloan?

I don’t know, the whole thing seems kind of odd. Then again, combining men and women, both pro and amateur, into one Hall of Fame is kind of odd too, right?

    I think the Basketball Hall of Fame is amazing because it combines all levels of the game. It’s not just the NBA Hall of Fame. I think the NBA should consider its own but for now this works. I totally agree with you that Jordan should have picked Coach Smith to present him. That would have been perfect. The ceremony was great thouhg and Jordan was very classy.
