oh true he made an allstar.

i'd be down w/opening that criteria up to guys who have made 1 allstar, maybe even 2 although i'd want to see a list.

Robert Horry for the right place right time hall of fame.

'88-'89 cavs that won 57 games with harper, mark price, and brad daugherty all scoring ~19 ppg and lost in the first round to the bulls is basically the perfect hall of very good team.

lol

bball ref has him at 6.1% hof probability. feel like he's only in if you're grading him on a '60s celtics role player curve, but maybe the 2010s warriors role player curve is the same? his peak was as the best player on some mediocre but interesting sixers teams.

don’t forget best player on a not-mediocre and interesting 2012 nuggets team...

yeah those interesting late 80s cavs teams are classic Very Good. ppl who were going nuts over that hawks team with 4 all-stars should have been thinking about the late 80s cavs. having read bob ryan and terry pluto's 48 minutes 60 times or so back in the day i will always have time for those teams.

his #1 comp on bbref is bob cousy (slightly more than a role player but still) so props to you for this

three weeks pass...

lowe and howard beck talked about a lot of this on the newest lowe post. i didn't realize how weird and opaque the selection for the basketball hall is! like it's not even really public who's on the honors committee that votes on hof entry.

oh nice gonna check that

the selection process makes the hof really un-fun to talk about tho i thought lowe and beck did as good as you can do.

the media may speak it into existence
