I'm not old enough to fully appreciate the greatness of Gus Johnson, so I won't fake it. Everything I've read indicates tonight's Hall of Fame induction is long overdue for him, and I just wish he was alive to see it. If you were fortunate enough to watch him play, I would love to hear your thoughts on just what made him so great.
Johnson will be inducted to Springfield tonight on NBATV. The ceremony will begin at 7, with coverage beginning at 6. This is your open thread to discuss the festivities. Until then, here are three things to read:
- LoneWiz54's profile of Gus Johnson as part of our "Top 20 Bullets/Wizards of All Time" countdown a couple years back.
- Fran Blinebury's great article on Honeycomb from last week.
- Bethlehem Shoals' ode to Gus in today's "The Works" column on Fanhouse (scroll down past the Danny Granger part)
Congrats to Honeycomb!
