Hall of Fame Rumors
John Salley 100% has the back of his old Bad Boys teammate Dennis Rodman … saying the human rights organization calling for revoking The Worm’s Hall Of Fame status is full of B.S. As we previously reported … The Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation is upset with Dennis over his relationship with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.
A major human rights org is calling for the Basketball Hall of Fame to BOOT Dennis Rodman over his relationship with Kim Jong-un — saying it’s not right to publicly support a “murderer.” The Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation — a non-profit org established by Congress in ’94 — is furious with The Worm over his recent visit to N. Korea and his ongoing relationship with the country’s leader.
The Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation has started a petition on change.org calling for the NBA to remove Dennis Rodman from the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame following his praise and defense of North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un. In the petition, the foundation said that Rodman has consistently defended Jong-un, who Rodman calls his “friend for life”.
LeBron James was asked Sunday to compare the threat the Warriors present to all the other challenges he’s faced in his career. “It’s probably up there,” James said after Cavaliers’ practice. “I mean, it’s up there. Obviously, I’ve played against four Hall of Famers as well too with Manu (Ginobili), Kawhi (Leonard), Tony (Parker) and Timmy D (Tim Duncan) on the same team. And if you add Pop (Gregg Popovich) in there, that’s five Hall of Famers.”
Did you hear what Tim Hardaway said about your crossover? “I’m going to tell you this and I tell everybody this: Allen Iverson carried the basketball,” Hardaway told NBA.com’s Scott Howard-Cooper. “I had the original killer crossover and people are doing my move. They’re not doing Allen Iverson’s move. They’re not doing nobody else’s move. They’re still trying to perfect my move as the killer crossover and it’s my move, all right? That’s the way it is. I brought a unique style to the game.” Iverson: Yeah, I heard about it. B/R: Any response? Iverson: I carried my crossover all the way into the Hall of Fame. So, there you go.
Q: Why not? What more does Curry need to accomplish? Generally, I think it was all so sudden. [Curry] leapfrogged a whole lot of people. There’s a whole lot of people who never got the adoration Steph gets … they don’t like that. Players who were probably Hall of Famers [were saying] ‘nobody ever anointed me like this.’
