Finkel changes mind on Stark for HOF
posted 2013-07-16 by Reuben Bresler
In a letter to StarCityGames.com, Magic legend and writer Jon Finkel has let it be known that he has chosen to add Ben Stark to his Magic Hall of Fame ballot:
After extensive discussion with a lot of top pros, I have moved back into the voting for Ben Stark camp for the Hall of Fame and I do not expect that to change. Among others, Patrick Chapin asked me if I thought Ben S was one of the 33 best players of all time and the answer is an easy 'yes.' Sam Black also gave some arguments I found especially convincing.
I think standards for the Hall need to rise, especially in terms of counting stats, but Ben is not the place to draw the line. If he retired tomorrow, he would belong in the Hall.
Jon wanted the Magic communtiy to know his intention to change his mind after his article, My Take On The Hall Of Fame, was published last Monday on StarCityGames.com
