    Ewing, Olajuwon, Riley among seven elected to Hall of Fame

    Coach Pat Riley, players Hakeem Olajuwon and Patrick Ewing, plus four others have been elected to basketball's Hall of Fame.


    Also among the class of 2008 to be inducted in September are player Adrian Dantley, coach Cathy Rush, NBA team owner Bill Davidson, and broadcaster Dick Vitale.
    "It's unbelievable, absolutely unbelievable," said Riley, the Miami Heat coach who won four NBA titles with the Los Angeles Lakers, then grabbed another two years ago with Miami. He also has one championship as an assistant and another as a player.

    They are really watering down the Basketball Hall of Fame....they'll let just about anyone in. It's not like baseball or football where you really have to earn your way.

    I don't even think Vitale has ever made a basket in his life. Plus, he's mad annoying.

    he was a very mediocre coach

    He's an annoying self promoting idiot. An ACC homer. I know he had health problems and i'm glad he's recovering well, but that doesn't merit him getting into the hall of fame just because he has a few catchphrases.
