    Alonzo Mourning makes Hall Of Fame

    First ballot inductee according to USA Today, won't be made official until sometime this weekend. Thoughts? Didn't think he'd get in on the first try.

    What does his college career have to do with anything?


    Or in basketball does college matter for the hall?

    Sadly it does. One of the many reasons that it's the joke hall of fame among the four major shorts.

    It's the basketball HOF, not the NBA HOF.

    It's the Basketball HOF. College, international, coaching, and front office mean just as much as playing in the NBA.

    It's why making the Basketball HOF is so much easier than making the NFL/MLB HOF.

    Recent example is Joe Dumars. His NBA career is probably not good enough to get in. But factor in he is the 11th all time NCAA scorer, and won Executive of the Year in Detroit and was the GM during their championship, and 7 straight ECF's runs, and he is a shoe in.

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    the nba hall of fame is so weak

    but nfl/baseball standards the likes of mourning and dumars would not get it. HOF should be for special players like MJ, Kobe, Bron etc....the lowest level player should be a Steve Nash/Jason Kidd players who were the best in their position even if they didn't win a ring.

    Mourning lol

    Zo is one of the all time great defensive centers to ever play. Not to mention a kidney disease almost detailed his career in his prime, actually twice.

    Man, this guy was an absolute defensive stopper. Physically intimidating at the rim. Sadly his condition limited his career. Well deserved.

    I agree there should be an NBA and College HOF.

    But you are wrong on Zo. He deserves it. Zo over Dwight.

    He might've made it regardless.
    6x All-Star
    2x All NBA
    5x All Defense
    2 Championships
    Finals MVP

    Not a bad resume
