Is Steve Kerr a future Hall-of-Famer

I think you can make a case for it. He has made an impact on the game. Every team now searches for gun slinger they can bring off the bench and keep the defense honest.

I say yes, because he has changed the game somewhat.

4 NBA champions on different teams

Has the highest career 3PT-FG percentage in NBA history with a .459 mark (677-1,475)

Also holds the NBA mark for the highest single-season 3-PT FG percentage, hitting .524 (89-170) during the 1994-95 season.

Won the 1997 Long Distance Shootout.

Hmm. On one hand, you make some pretty good points. On the other hand, you have to be smoking crack.

Can you think of a bench player that has impacted the game as much

You can't win the NBA championship without a 3 point specialists
today. Unless you have a few starters that can hit the 3 on a consistent basis.

No insults here. Steve Kerr is like the DH of baseball and now every team wants one on their bench.

So, are you saying the Bulls wouldn't have won their championships without Kerr?? This is absurd!

Should Jack Haley make the Hall of Fame? You know, Dennis Rodman was a major factor in the Bulls late championships, and Haley helped keep Rodman under control, so throw him in the hall!

I think John Salley should be in the HoF. Look how many championships he's won. His cheerleading skills are on the benched is incredible and rival that of Mark Madsen.

Thats the key word right there= "specialist" HOF should be reserved to all around great players not specialists. Kerr was a great role player but cmon give me a break no way on the hall of fame.

am a Kerr fan though

Steve Kerr will get the recognition he deserves: being known as one of the best 3pt specialists ever. He is far from a Hall of Famer, though.

Kerr will not make the Hall. If Detlef won't make it, Kerr won't.

This hall of fame talk has gone too far!

The HOF is for LEGENDS. IMMORTALS. Superstars who changed the game. Those who left an indellible mark...

Bird
Magic
Jordan

Malone
Stockton
Isiah
Hakeem
Shaq

are peope who represent the NBA brand of basketball who are locks for the HOF.

Some people saw that Drazen Petrovic made the HOF, looked as his NBA stats and then began to expand the criteria for making it to Springfield. Petro is not in the hall because of the NBA. His impact and legend goes way beyond the courts of David Stern's league.

NBAers who are on the brink should have made a minimum of four or five All Star games.

Guys like:

Mullin - who will be given more consideration due to his All American career at St. Johns
Dumars
Kevin Johnson
James Worthy
Tom Chambers

All if these guys has been ALL NBA at some point in thier careers, and have been considered among the top two or three players at thier position.

If you were never All NBA, if you didn't make at least five all star games, if you didn't change the game.....

you don't deserve to go the hall of fame.

Heck, Kevin Duckworth should make it then if Kerr does. Duck proved that a tall big man with stubby arms and THE DUCK HOOK could make the all star team and take his team to the finals. Ha ha, I made myself laugh at least. No crack smoking for me.

Duckworth...

the biggest problem here is that the whole premise is wrong. kerr didn't change anything. he stepped into a role already established and played even better by paxson. as a matter of fact, hodges backed up paxson, and was as good a shooter as kerr (at least comparable - and anyone who saw him have the greatest performance at the 3 point shootout would concur). trent tucker was on the bulls. the 80's celts had rotating 3 point specialists in wedman and sichting.

obviously, strictly a 3 point specialist should never make the hall. but if you were even to consider one based on their importance, it wouldn't be kerr.
