    Yes, of course he should. And 10 years ago, not today.

    Keep in mind that this is the basketball hall of fame. It's not limited to your time in the NBA. I would say yes based on the OP.

    If that’s the case, then yeah. He should get in.

    Certainly appears that way based on criteria.

    but hopefully we can use his expiring, if not at least we unloaded Novak's deal...

    maybe, based on his overseas stuff. but Shawn Kemp, Kevin Johnson, Tim Hardaway, and Detlef Schrempf all need to get in before him.

    i think Vlade Divac was a much better player(nba and overseas), and he just barely got in. Toni's not gettin in anytime soon i don't think

    Vlade Divac was not better than Toni Kukoc but he also was a great player.

    The best big from Europe those days after Sabonis' half a knee left wasn't doing its job, Dino Radja was the best center.

    In fact, Toni Kukoc is the only 5+ years NBAer that has a consistent case for European GOAT. Dirk Nowitzki for example is appreciated, but he only gets this kind of love by people who discount Sabonis, Drazen, Kukoc, Galis and some others because they never saw them. Divac isn'ta top 10 consideration when it comes to Europeans and I'd argue he'd not make most top 20 lists, whilst Dino Radja probably is in every top 20 list.

    We pay much more attention to national team play and European competition, but obviously if someone like Dirk, Pau, Parker etc are consistently amongst the elite of the NBA, it'll get them named a lot more. People are now saying that Giannis is the GOAT which is absurd at this day, but he could potentially end up there. If he wins a couple of championships in the NBA and most importantly, with Greece, then he's probably the GOAT in the eyes of everyone.


    The biggest HoF crime is omitting Chris Webber.

    Chris Webber does not have a HOF career if we are looking at it objectively. Unfortunately, anyone with two hands that can dribble a basketball will automatically get in so the standards are already low but Chris Webber's injury and longevity are why he should not be a HOF basketball player. He had 6-7 great seasons but the majority of his NBA career was filled with injuries.

    If you think the standard is too low I agree but given what the standard is, Webber is a no brainer.

    Yup. I'd vote to just create an NBA HOF and make it more exclusive list. Heck, it should have been created since there is nothing to do for sports at this moment.
