Let's say a Rookie Player won ROY, DPOY, League MVP and Finals MVP with the Title of Course and then retired.

Would they make the Hall of Fame?

i dont think the nba would allow that to happen unless it was a rook from the lakers or celtics...

Do they retire after 1 year?

I think they do.

They would be the first person to do a complete award sweep.

no.the hof is about career,and while impressive,his career was only one year long

Yeah, just say they had a career ending injury in the summer after they had done all of that.

How much of a lasting contribution would that have on the game of basketball?

It would be an accomplishment in the record books for possibly as long as the game of basketball exists.

However the contribution is only based on a single season of play.

I don't know to be honest. If they had a lucrative college career as well then that could all be included in the case I think and give him a more favorable case.

Why don't you go into more detail bud.

Because it's only one year, i don't think that's a big enough sample size to determine if someone's a hall of famer, no matter how many awards he won.

No, I think he would just become the answer to some obscure trivia question.

I think this is a pretty good question. I don't get where all this negativity is coming from. Seems people just have nothing better to do than ***** and complain about a thread topic.

I don't think he'd get into the Hall as a player, but maybe when he retired, they want to put his jersey in there and a plaque explaining his accomplishments.

to be a rookie and the best player on ur team is already something.....but to be best in the league is another especially being the best player on an nba championship team in your first year.....i dun think any rookie can handle the pressure

but hypothetically....no, hall of fame is based on ur career not ur year.....its all depends on what happends next i guess

MackSnackWrap
09-24-2009, 04:25 PM
Ima go with yes, since they won all these awards they must be good and deserve a spot in the HOF

This has to be an obvious yes, simply because someone doing THAT GOOD would be a historical event that would greatly raise the interest in the league. His name would instantly become legendary.

Think about what your talking about. That person, as a ROOKIE, would have to be as good or better than Jordan IN HIS PRIME, in order to win all those awards.

Most likely, the team that drafts him would have to suck, so to turn around one of the top 5 worst teams and win an NBA Championship, while winning MVP as a rookie (has that even been done before?), is amazing. But to then go on and win DEFENSIVE player of the year too?! That shows your possibly the best at both ends, and proved it before your 82nd game!

Think of how unbelievable your year would have to be to even garner that kind of attention?!

Obvious yes for the historical impact...

Yes because no one has done that before and probably would never happen again. They could be considered the best basketball player of all time if this happened IMO.

Deserves to be in the HoF because he did something pretty amazing. However, I doubt that getting RoY, DPoY, and MVP trophies because he was particularly good, but moreso because the league that year was particularly bad. Winning all those awards is amazing, which now begs the question ...

WHY THE HELLO WOULD THE KID RETIRE?! That's too implausible to even be dignified as a hypothetical. This hypo-rookie can command a salary that makes A-Rod, Tiger and Federer jealous.

They can make the hall of fame, BUT they have to be great their whole career. To win a League/Finals MVP, ROY, or DPOY in your rookie year does not mean that you're gonna make the hall of fame automatically.

NO. Longevity is a factor and who knows if the season was a fluke or not. One year of basketball (even if all-time great) is not HOF worthy.

MiamiHeat
09-24-2009, 07:40 PM
if that ever happen that would be a great accomplishment however I don't see how that gets him into the hall of fame, like somebody mentioned earlier in this thread is all about having a great basketball career that gets him into the hall of fame I don't think 1 season is enough...

hewould go down in history for being ******** that's for sure...i dont think he would make the hall of fame for that. i think he would be remembered more for leaving after 1 year than his accomplishments.

GiantMetKnick
09-24-2009, 08:37 PM
No, I don't believe he would.

I think a lot of it would depend on why he retired though. If he had a career ending injury the last play of that Finals game, then maybe voters would be more sympathetic.

If he retired to pursue a movie career, he would have disgraced the game and nobody would let him in.

Also, it would depend on his averages. If he averaged 50 PPG, 20 RPG, 15 APG.. then it would certainly make his case a lot stronger.

Not if he retires after his rookie season, 10 more solid years (3 more as an elite player) in the NBA and then yes, HOF.

Anyone in the league for 10+ seasons with an MVP award will make the HOF.

If a rookie had numbers like Oscar Robertson, with 3.0spg and 1.6 blocks (or a swap of those numbers). If he kept up the anywhere near the level of play for at least 3 seasons. Then Yeah.

If he won all of those rewards and then died in the off-season, then I do think he would be a HOF.

09-25-2009, 12:47 PM
Yes... He should also win the dumbest person in the world award because if he could just wait a couple more years, he can get max contract and get hell of rich! lol

if he retired because of injury and it was a WEAK HOF class, possibly, but i can't imagine this happening

Yes, Wes Unseld (13.8 ppg and 18.2 rpg in rookie year) and Wilt Chamberlain (37.6 ppg and 27 rpg in his rookie season :speechless:) both won MVP in their rookie seasons.

I hate questions like these because people make up impossible scenarios.

Even if someone was THAT GOOD at basketball, it is clearly his passion and want he lives for, a player of that caliber would never retire from the game like that.

What if we took a poll and asked, "Should Jordan's Bulls be required to submit a formal request for a thread before it actually is created, yes or no?" and everyone, including Jordan's Bulls, voting "yes?" Do you think the mods would make the rule official? Do you think they would enforce it?

junion
09-25-2009, 11:34 PM
"...and then retired" - no... that's a pretty good year... but that's it.

If there's no "...and then retired" it would be safe to say that if that player is good enough to win all those his rookie year, then he'd be pretty good throughout his career.

...but since there's an "...and then retired" then that's lame.

kidfury
09-26-2009, 12:10 AM
The odds of someone winning all those awards in their one and only one season would be slim. Regardless if their career is one season or a dozen it would be an incredible accomplishment so yes, he'd be worthy of HOF.
