Sam Shaughnessy, the son of Dan Shaughnessy said “It’s a great honor to be here on this induction to the Hall of Fame. My dad would be here if the Knicks extended the series with the Celtics but they lost.  My dad would be happy because of all of the players and journalist that are Irish descent.” He along with others explained how it is to be in this Hall of Fame especially when David Wright was there as well.
