Rick Pitino may be in the Final Four, but he won't be elected to the Basketball Hall of Fame -- at least not this year. Did the Hall of Fame get it wrong?
pioms: "He's arguably the greatest coach in the game right now, but I say wait until these guys are done coaching before putting them into the Hall of Fame. What a distraction this must be for him and his program."
1908gocubs: "wow, that's some messed up stuff. no way he shouldn't be in the hall of fame."
mdawgmike: "Unless you're a former NBA player who took up coaching, you usually have to wait until you retire as a coach. They don't want to vote you in yet in case your future teams become a bunch of hacks."
milkyd79: "He should be permanently banned just for what he did to the Boston Celtics during his time there. Truly awful!"
hibbdog: "As much as I dont like Pitino. Especially for blowing up my Celtics and leaving them with a pile of rubble. However, I think based on his college accomplishments, he should be in the Hall of Fame. He has the wins to meet the criteria. He has one national title too. "
ptgatorboy13: "since when does winning one championship make you HOF material?"
