A formal proposal dated 1-1-07 has been forwarded to the
Naismith Basketball Hall Of Fame. The proposal requests that the
HOF begin judging ABA candidates in the same manner in which the
Baseball Hall Of Fame finally now recognizes Negro League
According to the proposal a group of qualified ABA observers (list
included) will be assembled prior to May 1, 2007. That committee will
then determine the deserving ABA players, coaches and executives, the
first ever to make it to the Hall based upon ABA achievements. Being
part of the HOF Class of 2007 is appropriate since this marks the 40
year anniversary of the start of the ABA.
We could use your support. Please email John Doleva, President of
the HOF, and tell him your feelings: doleva@hoophall. com
I will gladly mail a hard copy of the proposal to anyone interested.
Just email me with a mailing address. patcosgrove@ optonline. net
