Chris Webber and Kevin Johnson and Tim Hardway should be in, probably Mark Aguirre too but he was before my time.  That is all I have to say on that.

It's a rather inclusive club.   They really need a HOF within the HOF.

No, his college career isn't one of the best ever.  

 

Good, not great.

You are batshit crazy if you don't think he had one of the best college careers.

Won 2 national titles, was a defensive player of the year, first team All American.... And those were in years he didn't win the title.

There is no scenario where I consider Hill or Weber one of the all time greats of the game......... Really nice, good players sure - but not HOF worthy (imo).

Brilliant. So Jaylen Brunson is better than Grant Hill. Got it.

And chris Webber? No. Not even close.

Great comparison actually.  No, I don't think either are Hall of Famers.

 

Brunson compares very favorably to Hill though.

Seriously not one person would say Jalen Brunson is a better basketball player than Grant Hill.

Rose colored glasses my friend, we are talking a 14'ish point a game career college scorer, he isn't an all-time great.

 

Sorry.

Yeah they just take measly 14 point game scorers as the third overall pick.

Woof.

Draft position...

 

:clap:  :clap:

 

Good one.

 

He was good fella, not all-time great.  It's fine, the basketball HoF has proven to be interested in good players, not just great.

 

No biggie, they can handle it however they want I guess, they opened the door to a ton of players by adding Hill though.  Hope they have room in there for a bunch of above average NBA players.  That focker is gonna be very full.

30K, pts + rebounds + steals + blocks seems to be a good benchmark for a HOFer.  Webber has it, Hill is just shy.
