Matt Barnes
Raja Bell
Big Baby Davis

Kris Humphries
Carl Landry
Kevin Martin
Andre Miller (not really a role player but he fits the criteria)
Kendrick Perkins
Nate Robinson
Dorell Wright

Lavator Shemmelpennick, Thursday, 6 June 2019 16:24 (two months ago) link

oh whoops I misread the criteria -- scratch most of those. Keep Raja Bell and Vinny Del Negro, and throw Andris Biedrins in there too.

Bo Outlaw is the coolest name

I love that Horry wasnt a first balloter. f that guy for life.

easy ball shooter (Spottie), Thursday, 6 June 2019 17:23 (two months ago) link

stephen jackson is an interesting case. i will have a hard time voting for someone that was the best player on their team even if for just one season (2009-10 bobcats). altho he never made an all star team or got any awards. but he hit some HUGE shots in the title run for the 03 spurs and also was the perfect role player for those indiana teams before he ran into the stands to fight for his teammate. also a big part of the we believe squad.

easy ball shooter (Spottie), Thursday, 6 June 2019 17:32 (two months ago) link

Derek Harper should be on the list imo

reggae mike love (polyphonic), Thursday, 6 June 2019 17:41 (two months ago) link

yall thats what your BALLOTS are for, you can make that happen, capn

be the 2 chainz you want 2 see in the world (m bison), Thursday, 6 June 2019 18:23 (two months ago) link

I can be the only one to vote for a guy who isn't listed? Sounds great

reggae mike love (polyphonic), Thursday, 6 June 2019 18:27 (two months ago) link

we add him to the list! then you campaign on his behalf!

be the 2 chainz you want 2 see in the world (m bison), Thursday, 6 June 2019 18:46 (two months ago) link

I think he stacks up pretty well with the guys who are in already:

Kukoc: .129 WS/48, 59.6 WS, 24.7 VORP, 2.3 BPM, 17.3 PER, TS% .532
Odom: .115 WS/48, 77 WS, 36.3 VORP, 2.5 BPM, 16.5 PER, TS% .534
Kerr: .140 WS/48, 47.2 WS, 5.8 VORP, -1.7 BPM, 13.1 PER, TS% .593
D Harper: .110 WS/48, 86.8 WS, 30.2 VORP, 1.2 BPM, 16 PER, TS% .537

Only one NBA Finals appearance, but he played well as a starter against the Rockets.

wait, is selection supposed to be based solely on performance? I thought this was at least halfway a comedy thing.

Evans on Hammond (evol j), Thursday, 6 June 2019 19:14 (two months ago) link

either way, I THINK all of these guys qualify if I didn't goof up:

Bonzi Wells
Mo-Pete
Bob Sura
Juan Dixon
Keon Clark
Flip Murray
Fabricio Oberto
Carlos Arroyo

it is totally based on performance! these are players that are v v good at like 1 or 2 things but definitely not good enough to be considered the best players of their eras.

oh ok, my mistake, i was confused bc I remember a lot of the guys on that longlist sucking ass, haha.

role players are often the best players on bad teams bc they're playing the wrong role (#1 option)

hollow your fart (m bison), Saturday, 8 June 2019 03:12 (two months ago) link

True hadn’t thought of it that way

big city slam (Spottie), Sunday, 9 June 2019 04:37 (two months ago) link

my philosophy is basically that any player can be an important one on a championship team with the right role. iguodala was never going to be a title contender as the number one guy in philly, but as a supersub who could kinda do it all? perfect on the dubs and his work there has cemented his legacy moreso than his larger role and fatter stats in philly.

hollow your fart (m bison), Sunday, 9 June 2019 04:45 (two months ago) link

too bad Danny ainge made an all star team I’d love to vote for that dude

just hastily assembled and sent a ballot

old cloud yells at man (voodoo chili), Tuesday, 18 June 2019 18:33 (two months ago) link

my fav thing about the ILHRPHOF is it takes only a few minutes to assemble a ballot. i guess you could dive deep into the numbers on all these guys but i believe the essence of the poll is fulfilled by just voting from the heart.

big city slam (Spottie), Tuesday, 18 June 2019 18:42 (two months ago) link

otm heart is v important. bc what some players did to become all-time role players was be really good at something for like 3 years

hollow your fart (m bison), Tuesday, 18 June 2019 18:47 (two months ago) link

voodoo chili your votes has been RECORDED

hollow your fart (m bison), Tuesday, 18 June 2019 18:49 (two months ago) link

old cloud yells at man (voodoo chili), Tuesday, 18 June 2019 19:13 (two months ago) link
