The first thing to keep in mind is we are talking about the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall Of Fame. Springfield honors international and American professionals, as well as American and international amateurs, making it arguably the most comprehensive Hall of Fame among major sports. Therefore it is much more inclusive than baseball and football who just honor pros with their HOF’s.
Grant Hill and Jason Kidd have retired and are both locks in my mind to be voted into the HOF someday. But what about the rest of the current NBA players? Who are the locks? Who are the maybes? Who are the ones still working on the resume?
Kobe Bryant, Tim Duncan, Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, Dirk Nowitzki, Steve Nash, LeBron James, Dwyane Wade
NO DOUBT IN MY MIND
Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili, Pau Gasol, Vince Carter, Tracy McGrady, Carmelo Anthony, Chris Paul, Dwight Howard, Kevin Durant, Shaun Marion, Chauncey Billups, Andre Miller
Russell Westbrook, Derrick Rose, Deron Williams, Kevin Love, LaMarcus Aldridge, Zach Randolph, Carlos Boozer, David Lee, Joakim Noah, Al Horford, Rajon Rondo
Antawn Jamison, Elton Brand, Chris Bosh, Amar’e Stoudemire, Richard Hamilton, Jason Terry, Jerry Stackhouse, Rasheed Wallace, Jermaine O’Neal
