He is a legend in that sense. Doesn't matter though, he was more than a dunker and will get in for his career as a whole + college + Olympics + inspiration to the young crop like KD, Griffin, etc
Not saying VCs other career accomplishments don't stack up but does being the best a specific attribute of the game put someone into the Hall automatically?
He revolutionized dunking. He was the best to ever do it. From that sense, should he be in the Hall?
hes not the clear cut best dunker and no that doesnt warrant hOF
This loser is a HOF. I don't really like his mentality, but he has some credentials.
Sim League Spurs
Gary Payton | Tim Duncan
2000-01: NBA Finalist
2001-02: First Round
dunking alone wont get anyone into the hall unless thats only way how you get your points and accumulate enough of them to have a good stat line
For starters there are so many missed dunks it probably has negative value compared to a decent lay-up using the correct hand. Blocks are nice, but if the team of the blocker doesn't get possession it doesn't do that much good. 3's? Yeah they have value. So what's the answer 4% for all 3? 3% maybe.
Basketball - it's a great game - too bad most look at games in person and on TV the same way - follow the ball, wait for a dunk, block, or 3. On TV you can even have some announcer tell you how important the play you just saw is. Too bad so few can figure it out for themselves, or watch the game off the ball.
So, VC is getting in the HOF, but, I dearly hope not one voter is banal enough to put him in for dunking as a major part of why he should be in.
6/27/09: “We expect [Rondo] to play by the rules and be a leader as a point guard. We need him to be more of a leader,” Ainge said. “There were just a couple situations where he was late this year, I don’t know if he was sitting in his car, but showed up late and the rest of the team was there. We have team rules and you have to be on time. He was fined for being late, he said he was stuck in traffic, and it’s just unacceptable.”
Some jerks never learn.....
Not sure how many people know this about Rodman but he wasn't just a rebounder. He was a great defender and had 2 DPOY awards, 2 rings and 2 All-NBA 3rd team selections before he became a Bull in 1996.
Vince Carter has enough credentials for the HOF but I don't think he's a first ballot guy at all. One thing doesn't get you in the HOF but a career of good longevity certainly can, and will for Carter.

Why does it matter though? And a reason why everyone was so in awe of VC and his dunking was because he was a superstar player as well..so he'd be scoring 40 points AND giving you 3 insane dunks on any given night.Originally Posted by Kushed:27980166
Don't think ppl would care as much if he was a 6 ppg player who could dunk better than everyone.
But to your question..I'd actually maybe say yes vs what others say..it was such a big deal at the time when Vince was dunking. It had a big impact on sports at the time. Being the famous probably warrants being remembered in basketball being the best at something. Just because he was so impactful to the sport...if that makes sense
