    PORTLAND, Ore. (January 8, 2013) – Trail Blazers Founder Harry Glickman has been nominated for the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame’s Class of 2013, the Hall announced. Glickman is nominated in the Contributor category, which elects one member each year.

    In addition to his Hall of Fame nomination, Glickman has been nominated for the 2013 John W. Bunn Lifetime Achievement Award, presented by the Hall of Fame. The award is the highest and most prestigious honor presented by the Hall of Fame outside of enshrinement.

    Glickman was the driving force that advocated for professional basketball in the Northwest. After founding the Trail Blazers in 1970, he oversaw the franchise’s growth over its first 24 years, serving as executive vice president, general manager and president. During his tenure as the Trail Blazers’ leader, he helped construct the roster that earned the Trail Blazers their first NBA Championship in 1977. He also guided the Trail Blazers’ business operations to the all-time professional sports record of 814 consecutive sellouts. Due largely to his success, the Trail Blazers became a model franchise for small market NBA teams. Glickman retired as team president in 1994 and has since served as the team’s president emeritus.

    Nike co-founder Phil Knight was elected in the Hall of Fame’s Contributor category in 2012, while longtime NBA executive Pat Williams won the John W. Bunn Award.

    The Hall of Fame’s Class of 2013 will be announced at the NBA’s All-Star Weekend, February 15-17. The John W. Bunn and Curt Gowdy Media Award winners are also expected to be announced at that time.
