The Michigan Sports Hall of Fame announced Thursday the latest group of inductees. Antonio Gates, Chris Webber, Jennie Ritter, Meryl Davis, Charlie White, John Beilein, Mickey Redmond and Kathy Beauregard are the eight new faces for the class of 2022.
John Beilein Rumors
Bickerstaff, 42, replaced John Beilein midway through the 2019-2020 season with the Cavaliers, after having taken over in both Houston and Memphis as interim coach. The Cavaliers won just 19 games in the 2019-2020 season, and 22 games in 2020-2021. Cleveland has improved its win percentage points by .288, the largest increase in the NBA this season.
This summer, Pistons swingman Josh Jackson received a gift from John Beilein — the former Michigan basketball and Cavaliers coach who is now an adviser to Detroit head coach Dwane Casey. It was a book titled “Chop Wood Carry Water: How to Fall in Love with the Process of Becoming Great.” The 2015-published work written by Joshua Medcalf is a tale about a boy on a journey to become a samurai warrior, and along the way, he learns that the biggest hurdle he’ll face on his quest stares back at him in the mirror.
Omari Sanfoka II: Casey said John Beilein’s main roles are helping players improve their outside shooting and being a resource to the other player development coaches.
