    Way overdue, not sure how many stones are left unturned in the ABA now though, but he was the biggest one by far, the most successful coach should get in.
    "It's just unfortunate that we've been penalized so much this year and nothing has happened to the Pistons, the Palace or the city of Detroit," he said. "It's almost like it's always our fault. The league knows it. They should be ashamed of themselves to let the security be as lax as it is around here."

    Well deserved, long overdue, and if true....we should party.

    It would be a real shame if the Hall of Fame doesn't do this while Slick is still around to enjoy it. Nobody could be more deserving. He's a basketball legend, in every sense of the word.

    I think I speak for all children of the 90's when I say that Slick and Mark Boyle's voices will always be incredibly tied to Pacers basketball for me. I don't get to catch them much on the radio anymore, but growing up that was often how I would consume my Pacers basketball. I am so happy for Slick, and I dread the day where I won't be able to randomly turn on the radio on nights where I am in my car during a game and hear one of their voices.

    Excited for Mr. Pacer Bobby Slick Leonard and Nancy too.

    Congrats to Slick. Fantastic that he's still around to see it happen (R.I.P. Rajah). Really great for the franchise and for the state of Indiana .
