An interesting candidate with a 2014 debut -- Cuban Jose Abreu with the White Sox. He is "old" in that he started his career in Cuba before he made to the US. Abreu has started out 2022 really slow but he's put up some big numbers so far in his career and he's got a great story as player. I can see him getting in the HOF some day depending on how long he can keep putting playing well. Obviously he's "too soon to tell" but worth watching.

If you're going to put in 1-inning closers - something I don't really fully support - Wagner should be in.

The Basketball HOF factors in other basketball leagues besides the NBA. They haven't lowered their standards - they just include other stuff when deciding.

And A LOT of people don't know the NBA doesn't have a HOF.

Yes. I know this. I am well aware it is not just NBA players. You donít need to explain this to me. Common sense still tells everyone what he obviously meant and that this is a pedantic correction.

How would the NBA lower their standards for a HOF they don't run or control?

We all know damn well he means the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. He is saying this Hall has lowered its standards in recent years. You know exactly what he is saying. I know exactly what he is saying. We all do.

Greg, I think Chris might be playing a joke here, by using my argument against me. In another thread, he suggested that everyone knows who Luca Doncic is, and I countered that almost no one knows who he is.

Almost no one knows what the Naismith Memorial Hall of Fame is, the three of us know, as well as 99% of the people reading this, but not the public at large.

Here were some NBA names from their 2021 induction class...

Rick Adelman
Chris Bosh
Ben Wallace
Chris Webber
Toni Kukoc

Peter, I apologize for derailing your baseball thread, I did not need to bring up the NBA.

It's all good. Basketball certainly seems very inclusive. I can see Webber, I can maybe see Kukoc who was a great player in Europe, but Chris Bosh, no.

After further consideration, I have decided there's some merit to your critique of me that I'm being overly pedantic (serious). I'll try to do that less in the future.

Bosh is an overlooked dude. He was an 11-time All-Star, was a top guy on 2 title winners, and won an Olympic gold medal. Nobody in NBA history has more than 8 (Larry Faust) and that guy played before dirt was invented.

I have kinda the same reaction to Bosh and then I look up his resume and I think "yeah, I see it now".
