So well-deserved, it's anti-climatic.

It's like Ron Jeremy getting invited to the opening of a Hustler store.

The snow is a more interesting story.

What more can you say- the best ever!! Too bad he can't be inducted in his own ceremony instead of having to be grouped with the others (though all deserving as well).

he won the race by 36 points, so the 71 was just the icing on the scoring title cake.

It's great to see MJ go in with another all time great Bulls player in Jerry Sloan.

This is as big a no brainer as electing the Meters into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Oh, wait, The Meters are not in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. But Metallica and Run DMC are. That's like Rodman and John Salley getting in, but Jordan not.

Congradulations Mr. Jordan, Chicago is very proud of you putting our name in a positive light. Don't get to cozzy with daley though you'll only get caught up and theres no need for that a this stage of life.

I think its worth mentiong that Jerry Sloan is the guy who didn't want all that flashy play by Jordan. That was a career ending decision in CHI but glad to see he did OK with his career and ZERO RINGS.

Wonder if Daley has considered selling Jordan? He has to be worth some future income stream right?

An obvious, but well-deserved and timely, tribute to Mssr Jordan.

As good as Jordan was, he is well recognized by the caliber of those who are inducted with him. ALL are excellent inductees.
