Dominated college, won a title and likely a gold medal.

Things the HOF seem to value.


What about TC. Chip, DPOY, World Championship, Olympic Gold.

Depends how the rest of Tyson's career pans out. If he has a Marcus Camby like run in his mid-late 30s where he continues to dominate, racks up a couple more DPOY and adds some more to his resume.

He will need more of the titles and POY's to overweigh his modest statistics.

Tyson I can't see at this point. If he plays a prominent role in getting a ring for the Knicks, I think he should be. Davis is an unknown at this point but his future could be promising.

That's a no for me.

Tyson with ring, gold medal, and DPOY definitely deserves it IMO. Davis, as long as he's a consistent all star, should have the resume to get there.

Disclaimer to everyone who are :facepalm:'ing. It is the BASKETBALL hall of fame. Not NBA. Foreign players, teams and coaches as well as College players, teams and coaches can all be inducted.

With that said, I personally don't think recent college players should be inducted (soley on the basis of their college careers) because they only played ONE year. Two years is a push but if they dominated for 3 years than they definitely should warrant discussion.

There is no chance in ****in hell tyson "i cant do **** with the ball outside the circle" chandler is going to make it to the hall of fame. period. a DPOY (undeserving one at that) and a Ring doesnt make you hof material, in any sport. If not for the last two years, he would have retired and been completely forgotten.


Anthony Davis might because we dont know what type of player he will be. But nothing he has done to this point merits being a hofer.

PS: when they say dominated college, they dont mean he was there for a year and won a championship, they mean what Maravich did, or Jabbar.

this.

There is not a chance in hell Tyson Chandler is a HOF. He just wasn't a good enough NBA player. Not even close to HOF material, even if he does win a gold metal, which really is nothing important considering the lack of competition in the olympics.

You can make a legit case for Ben Wallace.


That being said, Tyson needs 2 more DPOY awards and a chip on top of a medal this year to be considered HoF material. I think his window is still open to accomplish those things, but it is very narrow at this point in his career.

You're right. Tyson needs another DPOY or two to actually make the HOF. I was just trolling a bit saying he's a lock. It pissed at least one guy off.


Wallace is a lock though. He won DPOY four times most in NBA history (tied with Mutumbo).

You're joking with this right Chronz? Hopefully you're trying to make a point, because obviously being the 12th man on a potentially Gold Medal winning team means next to nothing as far as HOF goes. We don't even know what kind of player this kid is yet.

Tyson Chandler? Even if they win, no - I don't see voters rallying behind him. If this was 1995 he wouldn't crack the top 10 centers list - he's not a Great.

I'm a big fan of Anthony Davis since he played for Kentucky...but he's no HOFer yet. He hasn't played a game in the NBA. But if he has a good career it's possible. Tyson Chandler has been solid in his NBA career, but I don't know if he will make the HOF.

Too early to tell on Davis. Chandler could be argued, I mean Rodman made it. (I know he had 5 rings, I am just saying he was a defensive and rebounding specialist like Chandler.)

tredigs
07-29-2012, 01:27 PM

I will say that a integral player from a foreign country winning a Gold in a tournament that the Americans are in is definitely a far stronger resume' notch than winning a Gold as part of Team USA.

I wouldn't say the road to the HOF is easier for foreigners though, no.

Rodman's the best rebounder in NBA history - and like you said - 5 rings as a major component of the team. The two are not comparable.

So Arvydas winning Gold vs collegiate players and Petro winning in the WC is stronger than the resume of a TC?

Yes but the only league in which Tyson has ever played in is the NBA. He is not a good enough NBA player to be in the HOF, not even close.

Lets break it down, Tyson Chandler : Defensive power house but offensively lacks skill a product of the pick and roll offense.

Anthony Davis? How is he even considered? If he basically retired after the Olympics and wins gold. He's HOF worthy? Based on a college career? GTFOH So many others on the USA team that should be in the discussion though.

Not necessarily. For Davis, first he needs to play professionally....something he has yet to do. At this point, as far as we know, he may very well end up like Greg Oden. Anything can happen, so let's let the kid play some minutes first.

As far a Chandler goes, he's just started to play to his full potential. I don't think he's a lock right now, but there's a chance. If he keeps playing at a high level, and maybe wins another DPOY, his chances will increase. Now, if he helps lead the Knicks to a Championship at some point, that might just do it for him. But will winning a gold medal this summer help his chances? Not really.

Right now, no way for The Brow. I do think he is closer than people would initially think. You made a great point with how the Basketball HOF views inductees. People forget that they condense college, international, women's, and even stuff like the Globetrotters with the NBA. The bball HOF is odd. If Davis had maintained his college dominance for 2-3 more years, and then gotten gold, it would be interesting. The only one year would count against him. But I think of a guy like Christian Laetner (sp?) as an example of why The Brow needs at leasta good NBA career to be a HOFer. Think Ralph Sampson.

Chandler is interesting. I do think he needs to do a bit more due to his lack of a college career.

07-29-2012, 03:14 PM

NBA careers mean more now, as odd as that sounds. But most NBA players have short college careers and the international lines have been blurred.

While I don't think Tyson chandler is a hof lock here are somethings to support his case and not make it seem like its a crazy idea.

Highlights: cp3 -> chandler alley oops will show how fun it used to be to watch him

Story: started off with potential. Hit "low" as a trade to Dallas from bobcats. Wins title, becomes dmvp, to be continued. Some hofs are on the bench at the start of career end or middle. A redemption story that can be unique.

Competition: he may not be anything compared to pre 2k centers but during his time playing (cant control what time he entered the league) can be considered one of the pure centers.

History: was an anchor to leading a mavs franchise to their FIRST ship. Not like he was another laker big man or Celtic. Dallas will remember him(?)

Market: plays in NY now. A couple more years or defensive power and NY media can help influence his ballot with more attention to his career highlights.

Accomplishments. Dmvp, Nba title, Fiba gold, Olympic roster.


Not a dominating lock but it's not just a emphatic NO! and he is still adding to his credentials. A ship in NY (first in x years), some all star votes, and another dmvp and this will be a different thread. Though easier said than done.

A Davis. Emphatic NO

You don't need to be an offensive player to make the HOF. Only an idiot would think that. He's 29. If he stays healthy, he has another 10 years to do something.

Davis has done nothing to warrant a HoF consideration at the present time. He will play very little part of the US winning the gold this year. Not playing in the NBA yet means he's proven nothing too. I'm sure you could find many players that have better college stats that have done nothing in their NBA careers.

In the end, I think Chandler has an outside shot. He needs another DPoY award and maybe another ring IMO. Davis has a chance simply on potential.
