The latest inductees to the Basketball Hall of Fame have been announced.

Phil Jackson. Well-deserved. You know plenty about the man.

Roy Williams, who finally got his NCAA title as a head coach a few years ago, is in. As Roy would say in his own words, based on an impression I’ve been working on “Well, by golly gum joe, ol’ Roy is happy to be in the daggum Hall of Fame.” He’s the fastest college coach to 500 wins.

The rest of the list includes: Marvin โ€œMendyโ€ Rudolph, Texas Western a.k.a. the real life Glory Road, Van Chancellor, Pedro Ferrandiz, and Mirko Novosel. I have to do some reading to learn more about each one of them.
Wasn’t that a newsworthy post? I wish I had something entertaining to add, but the basketball Hall of Fame is the most random organization (if it is an organization) in the world. Do yourself a favor and click on that link to the nba.com news feed I put towards the beginning of the post.

Now if you’ll excuse me, my favorite goofball ladies man is pitching for my fantasy team and the New York Yankees. Carl Pavano, the “American Idle” as they say. He’s already given up a hit and a stolen base.
