    Would you put Steve Kerr in the HOF

    Steve Kerr was one of my favorite players growing up as a kid (outside of MJ obviously), I had to beg my mom to get me a black bulls Steve Kerr jersey back in 97, but I had no idea he was going to have this type of career.

    While his numbers are not that great, he played a huge part in the second 3 peat for the Chicago Bulls including the game winner for the 97 Championship.

    In 03 WCF, he came off the Spurs bench COLD and drained 4 huge 3s against the Mavs which changed the entire series and on his way to his 5th title.

    He won his 6th title as a coach winning 67 games in his rookie year.

    He has the opportunity to beat the best record to win 73 games. He would be the only person to be a part of both teams and the opportunity to win his 7th ring.

    If his coaching career continued the way it has, would you put him in the HOF?

    I also forgot to add that he owns the highest 3pt % in the NBA.

    easily. remember, it's the Basketball HOF

    All American at Arizona, twice. All Pac-10, twice. Gold Medal for the US in 1986. Decent NBA career. Now has a championship as a head coach.

    He will sail in, because it's all wrapped into one big resume.

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    His career is just ridiculous if you think about it...think about all the HOF coaches he also had the opportunity to play for

    Lute Olson
    Lenny Wilkins
    Phil Jackson
    Greg Popovich

    All the amazing players he got to play with
    Mark Price
    Tom Chambers
    Craig Ehlo
    Shaq
    Jordan
    Pippen

    Saved me the trouble. When you combine his college, pro, and coaching careers he is already in.

    Sure why not. The basketball hall of fame puts everyone in when you factor in college and influence stuff. If he continues an impressive coaching stint he's easily past the bar that has been set.

    I'm not really familiar at all with how the bball HOF works (apparently), but as a player my answer to this would be no way. Yeah he's a great shooter, was on all time great Bulls teams, but dude was a backup. I don't really get why a backup goes to the HOF but I guess bball works differently.

    Also as a coach... the guy has fallen into the easiest coaching gig possibly ever. I mean maybe he's a really good coach, but I honestly can't really judge that based off him coaching this team. He's basically coaching an allstar team. But he sails into the HOF? Okay I guess whatever.

    are you aware it's the Basketball HOF? He was a stud in college, won a gold medal, had a sustainable NBA career, and has now won a championship as a head coach.

    That is literally an automatic shoe-in to the Basketball HOF.

    LOL that is not a HOFer. Decent NBA career, a gold medal in 86 that's not an olympic gold medal. He was never the best player on any of his teams. As a coach he might get in if he wins multiple titles but he is not even close to a HOFer as a player.

    yao ming at least made all nba teams and all star teams. steve kerr in the NCAA averaged 11.2 points in his 4 years at Arizona and made one ap 2nd team. In the nba he averaged 6 points per game and only started 30 nba games in his career. as for the gold medal he didn't even finish because he blew out his knee. There are hundreds of more deserving guys until potentially his coaching carrer allows him to make it.

    If there was a college basketball HOF he wouldn't be in it. If there was a international basketball HOF he wouldn't be in it. If there was an NBA HOF he wouldn't be in it. Combine them and he's not a HOFer

One can make a clear case against/for Yao Ming with his watered down numbers. But, Steve Kerr?!!!
    STOP IT!!!! Steve Kerr was weak!! He had ZERO defense! He couldn't run, he couldn't jump, he could only shoot. AND ONLY SHOOT IF HE WAS W-I-D-E OPEN!

    Someone must have not reminded you that it doesn't take much to be an NBA HOF'er. You don't strictly have to be a player or coach. Just someone who has accomplished a lot in the basketball world. Three point champion, relatively decent college career, FIBA champion, he will no doubt be a COTY for many years, and he will no doubt win a few more rings.. dude, this guy will accomplish so much in every facet of the NBA game. It doesn't matter how great he was as a player.. his coaching ability will skyrocket him into the HOF. Just look at who are already in the HOF.. it doesn't take much, really.
