Default Jordan, Stockton, Robinson lead finalists for Hall

Michael Jordan, John Stockton and David Robinson are among 16 finalists for the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.

NBA coaches Don Nelson and Jerry Sloan and Rutgers women's coach C. Vivian Stringer also made the cut on Friday from a field of 164 nominees, as did former NBA stars Dennis Johnson, Chris Mullin and Bernard King and two-time WNBA MVP Cynthia Cooper.

"I'll step out on a limb and speak for all of them and say thank you," said Robinson, the former San Antonio stalwart and lone finalist who attended the announcement during NBA All-Star Game festivities. "We understand the honor that goes along with being nominated. We know everyone doesn't get in."

The election announcement will be on April 6 at the NCAA Final Four in Detroit, with enshrinement in September at the Hall of Fame in Springfield, Mass.

How funny would it be if MJ doesn't make HOF on first ballot?

Jordan's a shoo-in for the gambling/cheaters HOF.

What's with all the hate for Jordan on here anyway? I'd love to hear the arguments.

people who talk about jordone's hangover..errr...flu need to watch this series. king was on his deathbed and he freakin killed it.

david robinson is the classiest player ever. i'm glad to see him there, especially with a couple championships.
