Each school selects one name per year.

UCLA’s prior inductees are, in order of most recent inclusion: Lucius Allen, Ed O’Bannon, Don MacLean, Reggie Miller, Michael Warren, Marques Johnson, Jamaal Wilkes, Don Barksdale, Gail Goodrich, Walt Hazzard, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, John Wooden.

    Is there a reason Bill Walton isn’t on that list? Seems odd…..

    • commentar

      Weird that his son is getting in before him.

  • Gary72

    Where is Sidney Wicks?

  • Joseph B. Lowe

    What a joke.

    Walton isn’t getting in because you have to able to speak clearly.

      guess when you have the basketball skill set that you have, you can criticize Bill, after all so many have made 21/22 in a tournament game. So easy, and 44 points is a piece of cake. Or being a dominant player in an 88 game win streak and 2 rings. Simple stuff that is easy overlooked because he doesn’t speak properly for you.

      • Joseph B. Lowe

        He’s a hick.

        • barry1817

          yeah a hick, with many years in pro ball, championships at every level, and contracts to do play by play for college games. Sounds more like jealousy on your part. But what the heck, according to you he’s a hick, guess that settles it. yeah right.

          • Joseph B. Lowe

            Not quite. I’ve got a china doll too. But, yep, you are correct, I’M RIGHT.

          • barry1817

            never said you were right, my comment was sarcasm, which it seems you can’t comprehend.

            No problem, keep your china doll, which means what? And thinking you are right has no bearing on the issues, people in ancient times knew they were right when they said the earth was the center of the universe.

          • Joseph B. Lowe

            Glad you agree with me all the way Pops

          • barry1817

            never said I agree with you little child.

          • Joseph B. Lowe

            Love you too Pops. Hard finding friends on this site. Glad to have you on board. Maybe we can get lunch sometime.

          • barry1817

            There isn’t a chance in the world that I would look to have a lunch with you, little boy, and there is no agreement with what you have opined and bloviated about.

          • Joseph B. Lowe

            No problem Pops. When you sober up, we can just get a drink. I think it’s nice to have a new friend on this site. Look forward to many interactions with you. 8 Clap On.

          • barry1817

            you bore me, you aren’t my friend, and there is no way that I would ever sit and have a drink with you

            Now go bother someone that cares about what you say, there will be no further response to such a pathetic little boy.

          • Joseph B. Lowe

            Come on Pops. When you sober up you’ll be happy with our new friendship. I’ll meet you for coffee.

  • Joseph B. Lowe

    Huh?

  • Joseph B. Lowe
