AP: Ewing, Olajuwon, Riley named to Hall

By ELIZABETH WHITE, Associated Press Writer

SAN ANTONIO - Broadcaster Dick Vitale, a man who had limited success as a coach but brought the game of basketball to millions of TV watchers, was selected to the game's Hall of Fame on Monday alongside Pat Riley, one of the most successful NBA coaches of all time.

...Others in the Class of 2008 were Hakeem Olajuwon and Patrick Ewing, two greats who battled on the court for years; player Adrian Dantley; coach Cathy Rush; and William Davidson, owner of the Detroit Pistons since 1974.

I'm still screaming at John Starks for going 2-for-18 in Game 7 to cost Ewing, Riley, and the Knicks the '94 championship.

I'm glad Dantley made it. If he and Vinnie Johnson hadn't knocked heads in '87 the Pistons might have won three in a row.
