    How about Slick?
    The poster "pacertom" since this forum began (and before!). I changed my name here to "Slick Pinkham" in honor of the imaginary player That Bobby "Slick" Leonard picked late in the 1971 ABA draft (true story!)

    A worthy choice, but the wrong one for 2013. We nearly lost Slick over a year ago already; they should have put him in as soon as possible.

    I think the documentary that airs at the end of the month may have put him over the top.

    I'm glad to see Rajah entering the Hall, but I could have lived with him going in next year. The Hall NEEDS Slick. NOW.

    Yeah I wasn't going to say it because it's kind of dark but there is sadly an unlimited time for Roger Brown to get in, but Slick is getting up there. It would be tragic if Slick didn't make it to his induction.

    Which is why I was hoping it would be Slick this year and Roger next. Since Roger has already passed away, timing is more critical for Slick. I hope he gets in next year and is able to enjoy the honor.

    Good for Roger Brown, but as a younger Pacers fan that never got to see him, I was rooting for Slick.

    Huge congrats to Roger.

    Otherwise, politics rears its ugly head again.

    I would actually think George McGinnis would be the most deserving of any former ABA Pacers given his dominance in both the ABA and the NBA.

    Congrats to The Rajah!

    A deserved induction to be sure. I would like to see Stern pre-empt his introduction speech (which I would like to think will be given by Slick) with an acknowledgement of the wrong perpetrated against him and then issue a formal apology to Roger and his family.

    I agree, but Slick's not stupid. He sees the writing on the wall with Mel and Rajah, clearly the trend has started. He's got to be thrilled to see 2 of his stars get in and he'd probably say they deserve it more than him anyway (and be sincere about it).


    You lose his possible chance onstage and to hear him speak about that era, and that would be a huge loss, but I'd like to think that by now he knows he's a HOF guy, it's only a matter of when at this point.

    Pre-Roger it wasn't as certain, but 2 in a row proves that Mel wasn't just a token guy meant to appease people.

    Plus this just makes me wish all the more that the NBA would work on digging up as much intact ABA game footage and get it transferred to digital storage so we can have it distributed on NBA classic, DVD, etc.

    I want to see these guys in action in their prime, and not just 2 second highlights. Let me see a full quarter at a time or something. Let's see Mel blocking out or Roger beating his guy and kicking the ball to someone else. The game itself, not the highlights.

    I remember when the Pacers played the Utah Stars (the Zelmo Beatty Stars). Every game the offense turned into a clear out for Roger against their best player (Willie something). Roger could get anything he wanted whenever he wanted it. ...

    There was a time when Big George and Dr. J were mentioned in the same breath...... George didn't take care of himself and he got old early or he was always older than everyone claimed..... ...

    I suggested this to a former ABA player and he said Slick has a ton of film.
    You know how hippos are made out to be sweet and silly, like big cows, but are actually extremely dangerous and can kill you with stunning brutality? The Pacers are the NBA's hippos....Matt Moore CBS Sports....
