Well that was a short thread. There is only one HOFer on the entire list.

9 might have a decent debate, though I think the answer is fairly obvious, it'll be a debate of peak vs longevity. I think the longevity guy wins it though.

8 is a good debate for sure
7 will be a good a debate I think
6 will be open and shut
5 will be the best debate probably
4 could be a debate, but I think it's obvious
3 will be open and shut
2 should be a solid debate
1 will be a very good debate

9 will at least be relatively interesting. I don't think there's a lot of evidence to argue in favor of the peak guy you're referring to, but I could see some posters voting for him. He does get a bit overrated on this site. I'm really looking forward to 8, though. There's like four guys who are all on par with each other, with no obvious leader in the pack. That should be more like the Sam Cassell discussion.
