Michael Jordan, David Robinson, John Stockton to Become HoFers

David Robinson, the great center who helped the Spurs win two of their four championships, will be announced Monday as a member of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.

The official announcement of the members of the hall’s Class of 2009 will be made in Detroit, where Monday’s NCAA championship game is to be played. Robinson’s selection by the Hall of Fame’s Honor Committee, a select panel of 24 voters, was confirmed Thursday by sources connected with the hall.

Others expected to make it are Michael Jordan and John Stockton.

Robinson retired from the Spurs after a 14-year career that didn’t begin until age 24 because he served two years in the Navy following his 1987 graduation from the Naval Academy.
