Monday marked the day the NBA Hall of Famer voters finally got it right, as New York Knick legend Bernard King was finally voted into The Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame class of 2013.
This has been a long time coming for King, who has long been thought to have been admitted into the Hall of Fame by players, coaches and fans alike. Better late than never for King, who will headline a class with Rick Pitino and Gary Payton.
Joining those three will be ABA standout Roger Brown, former University of Houston coach Guy Lewis, African American pioneer E.B. Henderson, Brazilian star Oscar Schmidt, Knicks standout Richard Guerin, NBA Executive Russ Granik, former North Carolina women’s coach Sylvia Mitchell, three-time Olympic gold winner and WNBA All-Star Dawn Staley and former UNLY coach Jerry Tarkanian.
