Today, Michael Jordan is being inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame, along with C. Vivian Stringer, Jerry Sloan, John Stockton, and David Robinson. ESPN has put together a compilation of the 23 best moments of MJ’s career (Note: ESPN could have done a better job of this page by making the videos play continuously instead of the way they have it, which requires the user to click on every clip).
Former Negro League player Buck O’Neil died this evening. A great loss for baseball and beyond. If you have never heard of Mr. O’Neil, rent/buy Ken Burns’ documentary Baseball and watch it. He was the star of the documentary. It’s a crime that he was not inducted into the Hall of Fame this past summer.
