Current and recently retired NBA players Hall of Fame chances

I was just wondering who you guys think have a good chance at being in the hall of fame. Who is an undisputed sure thing? Who will probably get in? and who might get in? This includes current players, and guys who have retired within the last couple of seasons.

I'm looking at the NBA.com list of current players and I'm going to try to remember some guys who retired the last year or two.

Ray Allen - Very good chance. He played on a couple of ho hum teams in Milwaukee and Seattle, but he's always been a star. One of the greatest shooters the league has ever seen. Being part of this Boston team has helped him out. I'm not sure he would make if if not being on an NBA championship Boston team, but he would have had a case. I think he probably gets in but not a sure thing.

Carmello Anthony - Current superstar. Hasn't played long enough or accomplished enough to be considered, but he has a chance. I don't know if he'll get in but he has the talent to be considered when his career is over.

Gilbert Arenas - Needs to get healthy before he can be considered. He's been a great player with alot of talent. He hasn't played on a great team. If he can get back on the court he may have a chance, but definitally no shoe in.

Ron Artest - I don't think he gets in. He's going to a very talented Laker team and if he can make his mark with them and produce some rings it will help his cause, but up to now, no, not a hall of fame player. Though he's been one of the fiercest defensive players of the last decade.

Chauncey Billups - Has a very good Chance. If Joe Dumars is in the hall of fame, I think Chauncey Billups deserves to be there. I'm not 100 percent sure he gets in, but I'd vote him in.

Carlos Boozer - no

Chris Bosh - Has alot to prove, not at this time, but he still has alot of time to do something hall of fame worthy.

Elton Brand - No

Kobe - Without question.

Vince Carter - He's been one of the leagues big stars for quite some time. Hasn't ever been on a team that was championship calibre. He did play with some nice players in Kidd and Jefferson, but never championship calibre. But I think his reputation as one of the great high flying dunkers and his numbers should get him in. He might get f'd around for a couple years like Dominique Wilkins but I think he gets in. Not 100 percent positive though.

Baron Davis - Nope

Tim Duncan - No doubt in anyones mind this is a for sure hall of famer undisputed;

Kevin Durant - wait and see, he has superstar talent and is a definite superstar in the making.

Thomas Gardener - I went to high school with him for one year but nope. I only list him cuz I went to school with him and I'm just being a *******.

Kevin Garnett - Undisputed, even if he never went to Boston he would be a hall of famer.

Manu - He's not the biggest star in the world, but several championships, hes been an all star and I believe hes an olympic gold medalist. I think he gets in, but it can be argued. Being on the Spurs helps his cause.

Richard Hamilton - I really don't know, he's been an all star, ncaa champion, nba champion on a perennial contender in detroit, but Im not sure he gets in. He has a case, but Im not sure.

Grant Hill - Shoulda, woulda, coulda, injuries hurt his chances. He's been part of some of the great Duke teams, never been on a great nba team. I don't think he gets in but he has an outside chance.

Dwight Howard - A hall of famer in the making, only freak injuries can possibly prevent him from getting in. He's on his way if his career keeps going how it is. Definitally a hall of fame talent.

Lebron - He'll be in the hall of fame for sure and he's just getting started

Joe Johnson - doubt it

Al Jeff - doubt it

Richard Jeff - doubt it

Antawn Jamison - no

Jason Kidd - Most probably

Rashard Lewis - nope

Marbury - hell nope

Tmac - hes been a superstar but I don't think he gets in.

Mutumbo - I think he gets in

Steve Nash - 2 time mvp, but I dont know about him.

Dirk Nowitski - He should make it.

Jermaine Oneal - No way

Shaq O'neal - One of the few undisputed players in the current nba. One of the all time greats.

Chris Paul - Hall of fame talent in the making, we'll have to see how his career goes

Paul Pierce - I think he's done enough to get in the hall. I would be shocked if he didn't make it.

Michael Redd - Hes been a great shooter and an all star but not the most memorable player. he aint gonna make it.

Brandon Roy - Superstar in the making, no way of knowing at this time what he will become in terms of all time greatness.

Derrick Rose - Another superstar in the making, has his whole career ahead of him.

Peja Stojakovich - no

Amare Stoudamire - He's been a dominant big man. He's been on good teams and been an all star. Needs to do more if he wants to make it, but he has a chance.

D wade - Yes, absolutely and he has a long career ahead of him still.

Rasheed Wallace - I dont think he gets in, but ya never know. A 4 time all star with 2 different teams with an ncaa championship and an nba championship.

Yao Ming - He's had a short career which may be cut short. But he's been a great center in his time in the nba. A very unique personality and a very unique, unforgettable player. A true ambassador of the game to China. The only Asian superstar from what I remember. I think he's a sure fire hall of famer because of that alone.

Gary Payton - I used to think he was a sure thing, but now Im not so sure. He was one of the best point guards in his day. Great defender. Part of a good Seattle team then road some coat tails to a ring at the end of his career. He has a strong case

Alonzo Mourning - He will be in the hall of fame


I may have accidently looked over a name or two of current nba players and im having a hard time thinking of recent retirees so you guys need to help me with this list and explain your cases on who should and should not be in the hall and why.

I also think tony parker gets in. I lazily looked over the nba.com players list. I missed some names when I was skimming through the leagues players.

How about Webber and Divac? Not really bothered to think of any right now, those two just sprung to mind.

Divac is one of the only four players in NBA history to record 13,000 points, 9,000 rebounds, 3,000 assists and 1,500 blocked shots, along with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Kevin Garnett and Hakeem Olajuwon.
That's pretty good company if you ask me.

Somewhere R-Star is frowning at your Reggie Miller omission.

Re: Current and recently retired NBA players Hall of Fame chances

What about Pau Gasol? I would say pretty good and probably a lock if the Lakers repeat.

Deron Williams-
if he keeps up his numbers for another 10 years, and Jazz remain competitive; he's in

Rajon Rondo-
an outside chance. Probably needs to get another title with Boston and be productive for 10+ years

Unless he's an allstar for the next four seasons and the Lakers win two more 'ships I doubt it.

Re: Current and recently retired NBA players Hall of Fame chances

there won't be many second bananas getting in under the current criteria.They're hardly letting anyone in.As things stand now if you have to think about whether or not a guy is a hall of famer he isn't getting in,at least not for quite awhile.
