Glad to see Dantley get in, he was a premier scorer back in the day. Ewing and Olajuwon were a given this year, but not too sure about Vitale though. Was not much of a coach, I assume he's getting in almost solely on the ESPN gig. I always followed Ewing from freshman year at G'Town until the end, and I am a big collector of his stuff, if he could have only won the title just once................
