2021 Hall-of-Fame class, per release:

Rick Adelman
Chris Bosh
Paul Pierce
Bill Russell (coach)
Ben Wallace
Chris Webber
Jay Wright
Yolanda Griffith
Lauren Jackson
Val Ackerman
Cotton Fitzsimmons
Howard Garfinkel 
Clarence “Fats” Jenkins
Toni Kukoc
Bob Dandridge
Pearl Moore


Nice class. 

Personally, I can do without Val Ackerman.  She has most prominently been an NBA attorney and the first commissioner of the WNBA.  Her contribution to college basketball does not strike me as HOF worthy.  Then again, I just loath the way her and Stu Jackson handled the Seton Hall call.  Didn't expect them to overturn it, but also didn't expect them to play us for fools in their defense of Mike Stephens.  #NeverForget

A nice class indeed. Glad to see long overdue honors for Garf as a scout and for his establishing 5 star camp which was such a fertile development ground for both players and coaches. If the Hall of Fame is doing its homework Tom Konchalski should follow Garf into the HOF in short order. Although they were eventually forced to split the scouting service and the camp Tom's visits to Five Star remained an important part of his evaluation process.. Another long overdue HOF nod is the one given to Bobby Dandridge. He was overlooked in an era that included forwards such as Jack Marin, Gus Johnson Bill Bradley and others but he was a key part of two championship clubs in Milwaukee and DC (with the Bullets and should have been recognized long ago as his peers were.. He was also a great college player at Norfolk State

When I was about to start my college career at St . John's I brought a team into the Flushing Tournament called the St. Stan's All Stars. We first beat the team from Bayside High School then we were matched up with Howard Garfinkel's Mama Leones team starring our own Alan Seiden. We pretty much blew them away, of course I happened to have Lenny Wilkens on my team who by the way stuffed many of Seiden's jump shots. After the game Seiden wanted to play again for money. We did however lose in the semi finals to a 7 foot recruit going to North Carolina.

The most important thing about this commitment for Creighton is it appears McDermott is not toxic with young African-Ameircan kids after everything that has happened.  After losing TyTy Washington there was doubt about his ability to recruit.  Getting a top 50 kid like this after TyTy de-commitment helps diffuse that notion.

Agreed.  I thought McDermott was toast.  Doesnt look like it.  Three 4 star kids is a nice get.
