The long wait is finally over. Roger Brown is finally in the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.

We already took a look at how people across the internet remembered the Pacers and ABA legend. Now, here's a sampling of the latest thoughts on Roger Brown on the weekend he finally is enshrined in Springfield.

  • Curtis Harris (ESPN TrueHoop): "Brown perhaps had the best series of one-on-one moves of any player at the time. Jab steps, pump fakes, hesitating dribbles, step-backs -- he had it all."  Read More »
  • Michael Pointer (IndyStar): "Roger Brown didn’t look at playing for the Indiana Pacers as a chance at redemption when the team and the fledgling ABA were born in 1967. If anything, it was just another reminder of all the hurt and anger he felt during the previous six years."  Read More »

  • Joel Brigham (Hoops World) "It’s easy to think of Reggie Miller as the greatest Indiana Pacers player of all time, but before the team came to the NBA, there was Roger Brown and his three-time ABA champion Pacers." Read More »
