Michael Jordan To Enter Hall of Fame in 2009

The 16 finalists for the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame were announced recently at this years All Star Weekend with Michael Jordan, John Stockton and David Robinson among those who were narrowed down from a field of 164 nominees. Jordan’s talents and accomplishments as a player are almost untouchable. Jordan won six championships with the Chicago Bulls, named an All Star 14 times and winning the title of MVP of the All Star Game 3 times. In addition, Jordan was named NBA Finals MVP 6 times and NBA All-Defensive First Team 10 times. But, these achievements are just a small portion of MJ’s career. He has also done things that don’t show up on a stat sheet or win an award for and that is hitting the shots when they count and being a leader. On April 6th, the election announcement will be made during the NCAA Final Four in Detriot and will enshrine the players in September at the Hall of Fame in Springfield, Massachusetts.
