Prominent NBA Writer Slams Basketball HOF Over Granik Selection
The Basketball HOF on Friday announced that former NBA Deputy Commissioner Russ Granik will be inducted as a contributor, and Yahoo Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski in a series of tweets lambasted the selection process. Wojnarowski: "Unreal. No Old Boys Network like Springfield. They need a separate Hall for the real HOFers. ... If you had any doubt about the influence David Stern and Jerry Colangelo have over the 'voting process' for Hall, you should have none now. ... I accept David Stern will get into Hall. He deserves it. He had a profound impact on basketball, here and abroad. But his deputy? Come on. ... Want to pay respect to real contributions to game, genuine and lasting impact?
