Howard-Cooper: Bill Schonely Excited For Hall Of Fame Induction

Scott Howard-Cooper of NBA.com writes that longtime Portland Trail Blazers broadcaster Bill Schonely is looking forward to his induction into the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame. ------------------------------------ "I go to these different towns throughout the state of Oregon and southwest Washington and northern California, and they all seemed to have, at one time or another, have listened to me and watched me and heard me, and they all have stories over the years that I have forgotten until they bring it up again," he said. "To know that they are out there -- I always tried to broadcast to that one individual who was out there listening somewhere. Apparently I did a half-decent job. "It seems to me, from what people tell me all over the region, they are so elated that something good has happened to this franchise. It happens to be what happens to me, being inducted into the basketball Hall of Fame." ------------------------------------ Back in February, it was announced that Schonely was the 2012 Curt Gowdy award winner and that he was Hall-bound. Schonely will be inducted on September 7. Hat tip: @pdxtrailblazers -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
