Collins to Receive Hall of Fame Honor

Former Washington Wizards coach Doug Collins's career has often seemed to be about bad timing and bum luck. Right place, wrong time. He was a star on the 1972 Olympic team that suffered a stunning and controversial loss to the Soviet Union in Munich. Collins hit two free throws to...
