Robinson A Hall of Fame Finalist

16 Hall of Fame finalists have been selected, and our very own David Robinson is one of them.  One of the top 50 players in NBA history, I’m sure he’ll have no problem getting in.  SI quotes the only finalist to attend the announcement:

“I’ll step out on a limb and speak for all of them and say thank you,” said Robinson, the former San Antonio stalwart and lone finalist who attended the announcement during NBA All-Star Game festivities. “We understand the honor that goes along with being nominated. We know everyone doesn’t get in.”

Robinson could have the great honor of entering the Hall of Fame with two of the other greatest players in history, John Stockton and Michael Jordan.  Basketball junkies will note Stockton retired as the NBA leader in assists and steals during his career.

Best of luck to all the finalists, especially our own Admiral.
