"Biggest travesty in sports"? Just because Lauren Jackson wasn't included?

I do not know what the eligibility criteria for the Naismith HOF, but "biggest travesty"?

She played for Canberra at the end of the 2014-15 season, so she should be up next year

Catchings is a lock. Cash possibly. Hammon is questionable as she never won a title or MVP award.

Anything's possible now that Weatherspoon is in.

Yolanda Griffith is confused right now.

Remember I told the bar higher for Naismith for pioneering and shaping the game

Women’s Committee Nominations

Leta Andrews (COA) no

Jennifer Azzi (PLA) no is in Knoxville all she needs doesn't hit the next level for me

Swin Cash (PLA)* close I say not this year my issue is she did a lot but not a lot on her own so maybe next year not first ballot

Tamika Catchings (PLA)* In legend Pioneer brought game to next level

Becky Hammon (PLA) unless she takes an NBA head job soon no

Susie McConnell (PLA) no

Debbie Miller-Palmore (PLA)* no

Kim Mulkey (COA or player) controversial and being on ballot twice off and may hurt her in long run of vote split belongs as both would have gotten in 3 years ago if she didn't run her mouth imho think she finally gets in so IN

Marianne Stanley (COA) very close esp with the supreme court case out by a hair I'll see what she does back as a hc

Barbara Stevens (COA) I'm not as big on d2 but is close I say eventually

Valerie Still (PLA) finally made Knoxville as close as she gets out

Marian Washington (COA) yes Pioneer for WOC in college ball long record and winner at Kansas In



So in this year and it's normally 2 or 3

CATCH

MULKEY

WASHINGTON

That's essentially saying high school coaches need not apply. She coached 52 years and won more games and more championships than anybody else at that level.

Weatherspoon being in is a big piece of evidence that the "New York Bump" is real.

I hope I am wrong, but I think Hammon is a shoo-in.

I'm really puzzled by the nomination of Debbie Miller-Palmore. Yeah, she was on the 1980 Olympic team, but she played sparingly in the qualifiers and the team didn't even attend the Games. Three players who started on that team aren't in and aren't going to get in.

Is Top of the Key that big a deal? Does working in the front office for an ABL team help her cause?

I just don't get it.

Is there a level of organized play at which she can still play without resetting her clock? I am guessing that the Bandits (not the Perth ones) will be hyping her putting herself in a game again next year.

I wouldn’t play competitively on a joint replacement.

Laughing You truly are across everything that happens around the world of basketball aren't you. Even the world of fake basketball.
