Tough to say, 1st ballot? Nah. I do think he will eventually get in there though.
My Ignore list: Naps, cahawk, FraziersKnicks, Jamiecballer, iknowhoops....
2014 Adopt a Packer
More like 2nd or 3rd ballot.
A ring probably will do it. Right now? No. But he's closer than people will want to admit. What he was in Orlando was absolutely first-ballot caliber.
I no longer care about anything here except for the Entertainment Forum, which sucks; the Music forum, which sucks; and the Magic forum, which does NOT suck.
Except for all of y'all.
.i get people are down on him right now,so you wont get many good responses(its better for hindsight) ,but he's already accomplished enough to be
Lol i love when fans do this question.
Who the **** knows if he will make it FIRST BALLOT
no one knows WHO are going to be the candidates that year and wich candidates from other years will be nominated again.
so if its a " weak " year he will make it first ballott, if its a " strong " year he may have to wait.
in the end.
Who the **** cares if a player makes it first ballot, second or 35st ballott.
The thing is if they DO enter or the DO NOT: i dont care if clyde lovelette entered first ballott or third ballott, all i know is he IS in the hof.
Dwight WILL enter.
Basically this. I wouldnt count out him adding to his legacy over the next few seasons in Houston as well.Originally Posted by abe_froman:28829560
It's totally ridiculous that you're so petty you would create a thread just to start an argument. But you want to get into this? Let's get into this. Here's Dwight's resume so far in only 11 seasons in the league:
Career stats of 18.3/12.9/1.5/2.2 with a .599 TS%, 22.1 PER and a .179 WS/48
3x Defensive Player of the Year
Top 5 in MVP four times
8 All-NBA teams in 8 consecutive seasons
5 All-Defensive teams
27th in career Player Efficiency Rating
38th in career WS/48
3rd in career TRB%
19th in career TS%
5th in career eFG%
5th in career FG%
23rd in career BLK%
28th in career blocks
20th in career blocks per game
40th in career rebounds
13th in career rebounds per game
18th in career postseason WS/48
11th in career postseason PER
Carried a mediocre supporting cast to the NBA Finals (08-09)
That is a better career resume than probably more than half the players in the Hall of Fame already. He's got a strong case when he retires as one of the 10-15 greatest centers in NBA history. And while a first ballot Hall of Fame selection isn't a lock, I certainly don't see why it's laughable.
No I don't think so.
Let's see some rings first.
Some of you guys are overrating Dwight. He's not even the defensive beast he used to be.
