HoopsHype Bob Dandridge rumors

June 19, 2013 Updates

A player recognized for raising his play in the big moments, Dandridge was a four-time All-Star and two-time champion, with two other trips to the NBA Finals. With the Bullets in 1979, he finished fifth in the voting for league MVP. Though nearing the end of his career, that same year he was named to the All-Defensive first team. "Every now and then," he said, "I look through my scrapbook, and I think, 'Damn, you were a hell of a player.' " He was, but the Basketball Hall of Fame has yet to call. "I think I'm deserving to be in the Hall of Fame," he said. "Probably the people voting now are too young to recognize my name. So many things are out of our control. If it's meant to be, it will be, but if not, I'm not going to leave this Earth bitter." Virginian-Pilot
