In all fairness, I wonder whether basketball fans will really forget today's stars. Casual fans will forget Carter, McGrady, and others that didn't live up to their initial hype. But basketball fans will see very good but flawed careers. I don't think any of today's players will really be forgotten by basketball fans with a real sense of the history of the game.

I don't think Vince will be forgotten, mainly because of his dunking prowess.

Guys like Joe Johnson, Danny Granger, Rip, T-Mac, Amare (Maybe not now that he's in NY) are the types of guys that I think the more casual fan will forget.

I know what you mean, but he's from the 50's so it's not that surprising. It's been 50 years since he won, not 15. lol.

There are also people who won't know Willis Reed or Wes Unseld (one time MVPs) but most real basketball fans would have that whole list memorized.

-----

Some of the names in this thread so far will probably be forgotten. I guess I was thinking of players that were regarded as superstars, not just stars.

I know, I'm kidding.
Besides, all else, NBA didn't become a big think til the 80s anyway.
I was actually going to mention Wes cause I thought he won 2 MVPs, but only won one. :(

But ya, I agree, very unlikely Lebron is every forgotten. I don't think his basketball legacy will ever rival Jordan's, Magic's, Bird's etc, but his brand name will be huge for years to come likely.

I'm just going to make a comparison about a flashy player and not trying to diss anyone, but Lebron in some ways reminds me of AI. Now, AI's career didn't turn out so well in the end, but there's no way he will be forgotten. His personality, his stats, his fanbase, his mark on the league was just too big. Same with Lebron. Even if he's just remembered in ridicule (which I doubt), he will still not be forgotten. I don't think "remembered" has to mean sainthood or anything. lol.

Some players are just remembered for their notoriety. But they're still remembered. The Worm comes to mind.

Tmac and Vince won't. At the time they were so athletic and were at the top. Also they will be remembered as the 2 laziest underachieving players of their era (Im not saying they are but they are always talked about as being underachievers).

Since it has to be a former AS I'll go with: Michael Finley and Jerry Stackhouse. Both these guys will be forgotten in like 7 years.

The same way that i dont forget and people that have seen the league since the 80s like me dont forget the Aguires, blackmans, dantleys, world be free, enlgish, sikama, and so on and on.

But of course younger generations will not know jack bout arenas, or redd or Jose Johnson or josh smith etc etc.

They will know the ones that become ultralegendary even if they dont win a ring Like Kidd or dirk or whatever ( the same way we do remember ewing, barkley, stockton and malone)
and they will know those who were parts of championship teams, not only the kobes, wades, duncans and shaqs ( bird, Jordan, Magic,Thomas) and not only the scond and third options, Gasol, Kg, ray allen, pierce, manu, ( worhty, Mchale,pippen dumars,) but they will also know the role players like fisher, perkins, osey etc the same way Rambis, lambieer, paxon, etc are known nowdays.

busts also are mentioned and remmebered long time after retiremente, everybody knows bout Bowie , or Bias or Pervis ellison nowdays.

But after a while they get forgotten too.

Stipanovic? Marvin "bad news" barnes? Kent Benson? Who??' exactly-.


We will hear bout Adam M , Oden, and Kwame for a looong time before they get forgoten, theres a chance tough that Oden will NEVER be forgotten depending on waht Durant does tough.

A lot of names here aren't even close to stars today. Michael Redd? Most of the guys people are naming are role players or old washed up guys.

Danny Granger is a star I would think, so he definitely has a chance of being forgotten by anyone who isn't a diehard. I don't even know if the casual fan is aware Indiana has a basketball team. :D

After al the drama this guys has created, The Espn Gig, Dan Gilbet ripping him and his words" Im going to south beach" loll and and all the attention by the media which will be extremely more now since he opted to go to Miami. Ohh wait he is a two time MvP and a legit presence in the NBa. This guys name will be cemented in the Nba loll not for the rings he might get but for being such a drama queen. He might een change the landscape of the Nba with supeteams or a few moe big threes in other cities. Hes alreaddy dropped some words for paul whos next ? Carmello Anthony?

I thing players like Monte Ellis, Danny GRanger, Andre Igodulo, Michael Redd, Rudy Gay are all stars but their names will be forgotten in 15 years in my opinion.

I really hope that doesn't happen..

I love watching that kid play, shows a lot of maturity and character.

Though, I do think he'll end his career with 2 or 3 rings..

I agree, he's all class too which is something I think the NBA should encourage.

Only the superstars will be remembered by the general public. Look at all of the "stars" of the 90's, 80's, 70's etc. The first ones that come to your mind are the superstars, then you have to rack your brain for the other good players.

Sadly, If KD stays in Ok City and they don't win a championship he might get stuck on that list.

i do often bring up Shawn Kemp in Dwight howards threads, because he is is nightmare scenario if he doe snot develop his game more once his atheltics are gone.

Richmond i often bring up in the typycal ( does a ring as a role layer count into a paleyrs career and how its viewed?)

Mullin, any time a dream team thread appears ill forver say he shouldnt have been In the team over Wilkins, WOrhty or Dumars or Thomas(even if they played a different position).

I'm not so sure about Oden and Griffin because they were number 1 overall picks. They would be remembered as busts if they never got healthy enough to play.

Other names coming to mind are:

Andrew Bogut (Solid, but the Bucks will not win anything while he is there)

Brandon Roy (Star now, but hasn't done anything to really stand out in history or be remembered)

Rip Hamilton (really good, but didn't even stand out on his championship team)

Deron Williams (If he stays in Utah and doesn't win anything)

OJ Mayo (Maybe he will be remembered by being mentioned in the USC scandals)

Lamar Odom (yes, he won 2 titles, but being surrounded by Kobe, Artest, and Gasol, its easy to forget him now, nevermind in 15 years)

Allen Iverson - Crossover + Practice
Ben Wallace - Defense + Fro
Sheed Wallace - Ball don't lie
Nate Robinson(not star) - 5'6 Slam dunk champ
Yao Ming - 7'6 Chinese

But plain Stars who are mostly scorers could be forgotten unless they win or does something memorable

So many wrongs on an enormous level. Iguodala and Johnson are legit arguments, but the others, come on.

Rondo, Bosh and Paul should have long careers ahead of them, and there's no telling how successful they could be. You clearly just seem to hate Boston if you think people are going to forget Kevin Garnett, one of the best PF's of all-time, Ray Allen, one of the best pure-shooters we've ever seen, and Paul Pierce.

But Shaq and Dirk? What the hell are you thinking (I hope you were serious)? Shaq may go down as one of the top 15 players to EVER play the game, and Dirk is, if not the best, one of the best European talents to ever play.

Not happening man.. How many people are going to randomly bust out with this? I really don't see him just being forgotten.

joe johnson just screams forgotten star. good but not great player? check. good but not great teams? check. incredibly average name? check.

mike redd, a shame cause he was very good before the injuries.

rashard lewis also comes to mind, considering the contract. on the other hand, maybe no one will ever forget that monstrosity.

carmelo anthony if he still plays in Denver

Brandon Roy
Al Jefferson

not in 15 years though, these guys will be fresh from retirement

LOL

maybe in 30 years.

Look at players who are still playing now whose legacy isn't remembered. In 15 years, Granger will be 42 and Roy will be 41. This is their prime now. If they don't win a championship, they could easily be forgotten.

just wiki Gilmore, is the sourest HOF snub ever, he wa sbig very big , enormous but he did not make many friends and now they are making him pay for it year after year on votatons.

Also wiki TOney before the injury ( lie tmac and his injurys) he had done lenty more than tmac.
So your backing your opinion up with wikipedia? I thought you knew enough about them to be able to stand on your own?

Cmon bro dont feed me the one liners you give kids, again NEITHER displayed that level of basketball. From both an analytical perspective and a memorable one.

Carlos Boozer, Raja Bell, Pau Gasol, Tracy McGrady

1. No offense but raja Bell is a star?
2. I think T-Mac has made his mark on NBA history, whether for good or bad reasons. I doubt he will be forgotten.

I think for that reason he will not be forgotten. Also, he's 28. I expect him to prove himself again. That guy plays to make his critics believe. I think Gil will definitely be remembered
