Your putting in PP in the HOF simply because he has a ring???? That is your jutification? Why not put in James Posey or Robert Horry...seriously though i want to know why pierce is in your Hall. I dont think he deserves it, i know he was underrated his whole career until last season but still i dont think he deserves the hall of fame JUST for winning 1 title. Before the big 3 were assembled i dont think any1 would have put him in the hall, so dont award an individual for a team achievement. KG and Ray Allen make him look better.

As much as I hate Paul Pierce for being a Knicks/Laker fan, I think he does deserve it...He has the career stats of a hall of famer...Allen also has to get in it if Pierce gets in it because he is one of the greatest shooters ever to play in the NBA.

Dude, im a laker fan, i hate him with all my guts, specially for his drama queen show off in the finals.

But the guy has talent, has lead his team for the last thebn years.

and has put torugh a lot of **** with that team without asking for a trade, something that is not so common now days.

so he has my respect and he deserves it.

Bill Walton was a Finals MVP and was the best player in the NBA for a stretch from what I've heard....Hill has never passed round one....and has barely ever been healthy....

Why all what hate? One person posted no to PP, and was a Lakers fan. Several people posted yes to PP, including a Lakers fan. You Lakers haters are really paranoid.

Try posting something about Kobe, then you can truly see haters.

Out of everyone on that list, the only people I could see making it are:

Steve Nash
Dennis Rodman
Reggie Miller

Exactly. Paul ranks up high in every ALL-TIME celtics stat's categories. Wityh the likes of Havlichec,bird,mchale..and so on. He has been great for many years. HE has had NO HELP until this past year. The only help he ever had with Toine', and when he had him, they went to the ecf's and the playoffs a few times. He is a GREAT player, and without a doubt, a HOF'er..especially with the ring now, and perhaps more to come.

Also, why do so many people put down Ray? This year he wasnt great, i agree. But he had an AMAZING career. He is one of the best shooters of all-time, and is/was a scoring machine. I think hes a hof'er, hes pretty much the same player reggie was, and everyone votes him HOF.

I was joking homie....and I actually really enjoyed watching the Lakers this season....the ball movement was amazing and Kobe was awesome....until he tried to do too much and abandoned what got them there....that's why people hate on Kobe....because he does trash like that and then people say he's better than MJ....

Reggie was slightly better....and had a very long career...Ray's isn't over yet and for someone to be unanimously considered a HOFer at Ray's age and level of experience your career has to pretty much be completely overwhelmingly great....

With most of these guys, it depends on the rest of their careers. With two MVP awards in a row, though, Steve Nash is automatic. With all his accomplishments and titles, so is Dennis Rodman. I think Emmanuel Ginobili's titles will get him in too.

I think Reggie had alot more going for him than Horry outside of the rings of course....

5 time All-Star
2 time All-NBA
All-Time 3 pointer maker dude

Those aren't groundbreaking accomplishments but if you factor in his playoff success and the fact that he stepped it up during the playoffs....I think he's gotta get in....hasn't every guy who has lead his team to the Finals been a HOFer???
