Role Player Hollafame Class of 2018 Inductee: Lamar Odom (16 points, 4 votes, 2 1st place votes)
Roles: Super Sub, Stretch 4, little bit of everything
Notable stats: 2010-11 Sixth Man of the Year, 2-time NBA champ, 1999-00 All-NBA Rookie 1st Team, finished 66th all-time in career rebounds (NBA), career high season scoring average of 17.2 PPG with Miami (00-01)
Why they never reached stardom: Personal demons and tragedies; playing support roles for future Hall of Famers; great stats on bad team

Role Player Hollafame Class of 2018 Inductee: Steve Kerr (15 points, 3 1st place votes)
Roles: 3-point assassin, clutch shooter
Notable stats: 5-time NBA champion, 2-time 3-point percentage champ, 1st in NBA history in career 3 point percentage (45.4%)
Why they never reached stardom: because the NBA was stuck in the Stone Ages and didn’t realize a guy who could hit threes like that should probably shoot more shots, IDK that’s just me (career high scoring average of 8.4 PPG)

i loved watching 10-11 odom do his thing

brimstead, Friday, 29 June 2018 22:04 (five months ago) Permalink

he was my fav laker during that era for sure

Hall of Fam (Spottie), Friday, 29 June 2018 22:07 (five months ago) Permalink

wonder what kerrs #s would look like if he played in todays nba. maybe a ceiling of reddick and a floor of anthony morrow?

Hall of Fam (Spottie), Friday, 29 June 2018 22:10 (five months ago) Permalink

wait i forgot to put odoms rings in there lol

reggae mike love (polyphonic), Friday, 29 June 2018 22:14 (five months ago) Permalink

good inductees....definitely considered bogues, odom, and kerr for my ballot but didn't end up going with them. camby is a great pick that i kind of forgot about. kukoc played for longer than i thought though the window where he was really good isn't all that long.

hope harper gets in next year, cool player who totally reinvented himself and ended up with a bunch of rings.

yeah ron harper was definitely a borderline all-star early on. kinda iggyish in that regard.

21st savagery fox (m bison), Saturday, 30 June 2018 01:17 (five months ago) Permalink

yeah he was on really bad teams putting up #s. great parallel.
