New Hall Of Famer Michael Jordan Tribute 2 Videos
It seemed fitting -- a bit poetic even -- that on the day North Carolina plays for a National Championship, one of its most famous sons was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame in a ceremony in Detroit.
Twenty-seven years after Michael Jordan hit a shot to win the national title for North Carolina in 1982, he was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame on Monday.
Joining Jordan in the class of 2009 is former San Antonio Spurs center David Robinson, current Utah Jazz coach Jerry Sloan, former Utah Jazz great John Stockton and current Rutgers University coach C. Vivian Stringer.
Jordan, Robinson, Sloan and Stockton were all elected in their first year of consideration into the Hall of Fame, while Stringer has been named a finalist in prior years.
To be elected, finalists need 18 of 24 votes from the Honors Committee.
