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

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.

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.

Has anyone actually visited the Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield? Friend and I are thinking of a road trip in the Spring to Mass and thinking of stopping there.

Lol, these aren't exactly ringing endorsements.

I've never been there, but I can imagine it. what could be more exciting than seeing wall-sized photos of famous players sweating, displays of old jerseys hung on dressmakers dummies, wall-sized lists of lifetime statistics, and darkened rooms playing endless clips of games played decades ago?

JFK's shoes would get lost inside Bob Lanier's shoes.
