kevin martin is a good new one.

pure rim rest (Spottie), Monday, 5 July 2021 21:47 (four weeks ago) link

I nominate Andre Miller

reggae mike love (polyphonic), Monday, 5 July 2021 21:52 (four weeks ago) link

il def give him a vote. one of my fav players

pure rim rest (Spottie), Monday, 5 July 2021 22:30 (four weeks ago) link

andre miller is added and a great selection!

class project pat (m bison), Monday, 5 July 2021 22:45 (four weeks ago) link

Five more I'd add to the list:

PJ Brown, Rod Strickland, David Wesley, Jim Jackson, Grant Long.

reggae mike love (polyphonic), Tuesday, 6 July 2021 00:01 (four weeks ago) link

some excellent choices but hot rod made all-nba in 1998 (what the fuck)

class project pat (m bison), Tuesday, 6 July 2021 01:25 (four weeks ago) link

also im trying to recall who it was, but one of david wesley's close relatives was one of my mom's patients years ago and i was just reminded of this!

class project pat (m bison), Tuesday, 6 July 2021 01:26 (four weeks ago) link

PJ Brown in particular is a great add, as is Andre Miller, he feels like a first ballot Role Player HoFer. Would've expected both of those guys to have picked up a stray all-star nod at some point (same with Strickland; I imagine he was blocked on a number of occasions by the PGs he happened to be contemporary to).

Debating whether to nominate DeShawn Stevenson - I won't be voting for him personally but he played a notable role on both the Gilbert Wizards and the 2011 Mavs

I ctrl+f'ed for Jason Terry, and was reminded that he was playing as recently as 2018! Still a couple years away for him.

Lavator Shemmelpennick, Tuesday, 6 July 2021 17:19 (four weeks ago) link

I will also nominate PJ Brown's slightly beefier doppelganger, Rick Mahorn

Lavator Shemmelpennick, Tuesday, 6 July 2021 17:21 (four weeks ago) link

Josh Smith would be eligible this year but for 12 minutes played for the Pelicans in 2017. Not sure he's a hollafame role player as I don't think any team ever quite figured out what his role was. but he's a notable player who otherwise meets the criteria

Lavator Shemmelpennick, Tuesday, 6 July 2021 17:31 (four weeks ago) link

i think jason richardson is newly eligible for this list

the mai tai quinn (voodoo chili), Tuesday, 6 July 2021 17:38 (four weeks ago) link

au contraire, was eligible last year and was immediately inducted!

Lavator Shemmelpennick, Tuesday, 6 July 2021 17:43 (four weeks ago) link

ah. well deserved!
