Ewing, Hakeem, Vitale headline 2008 Naismith Hall of Fame class

Associated Press

SAN ANTONIO -- ESPN college basketball analyst 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.

Overcome with emotion, Vitale broke into tears during the announcement in San Antonio, site of the NCAA Men's Final Four.

"I can't run, can't jump, can't shoot, but just have had a tremendous -- I'd like to think -- passion about the game," said Vitale, who had a short stint as an NBA coach in the late 1970s but made his name as a college basketball analyst.

I don't think anyone has any objections to these inductees.

Vitale should be sitting in seat #2, row #4 of my 3rd period class cuz he's useless.

Other than that, bravo.

Master Riley finally gets his due (a moment of silence for His Greatness please)

Dick Vitale?

I guess someone has to support the end of the King's cape at the ceremony.

Ewing and Hakeem really deserve this. Too bad Ewing never won a title in his career in the NBA.
