1972: ROTY & MVP

In 1972, Artis Gilmore accomplished a rare feat in professional sports when he was named Rookie of the Year and Most Valuable Player of the American Basketball Association (ABA).

Not enshrining Artis Gilmore in the NBA Hall of Fame is a travesty. Individuals have gotten in on their singular NCAA, ABA or NBA careers. Mr. Gilmore was a star at each stage. And when one considers the "contributions" of recent enshrinee Dick Vitale versus Mr. Gilmore's (who actually played the game), it's appalling. Give Artis his due!!
