Afternoon Musings-Is the Chief a Hall of Famer? I don't think so. Robert Parrish and James Worthy are new HoF nominees. Parish was a good player for a very long time, but not quite a great player. Likewise, Worthy was good, but not quite HoF material. Both benefit from being with the great Celtic and Laker teams of the 80s, but being third banana behind McHale and Bird or second banana behind Magic aren't HoF credentials. The same can be said for Gus Johnson, Dennis Johnson, Mo Cheeks and Bobby Jones, good players but not great ones. The three I could make a case for would be Meadowlark Lemon, Chick Hearn and Eddie Sutton, although the mess Sutton left at Kentucky makes me want to disqualify him. On a darker note, it looks like the Russians and French are not only going to veto anything pointing towards war with Iraq but are putting the screws to the non-perminant members. If the UN were Catholic, it'd be a candidate for Last Rights Rites, especially if this story of chemical cluster bombs designed to "crop-dust" a broad patch of land is true.
