    Sort of the price you pay for playing a smaller role on a good team. Look at McHale, who is a HOFamer of course, and Bosh will probably eventually get in too...but he'll always be seen as a kind of a role player.

    He put up pretty good numbers in Toronto and he still had to lobby for all star votes... Hall of fame? Child please.....

    Objectively, he had to be compared against the likes of Duncan, Garnett and Kobe. No disrespect to Kobe, but if Kobe were alive today, would he even get in this year?

    Regardless, Bosh's career definitely cannot compare to the likes of those 3.

    ???? Kobe has 5 rings he a first ballot the moment he is eligible.

    Bosh's career can't even compare to Tmac, sure he got 2 rings but he got that by being the 3rd banana. That's like saying Draymond deserves to be a first ballot HOF.

    Bosh's career is nowhere near hall of fame worthy. Those Raptor teams he was a part of were a disappointment when he was their franchise player. He is a great secondary player but not a primary franchise guy. No way should he get into the hall of fame.

    Hall of fame?

    He thinks too highly of himself.

    He can hop on the year Lebron and Wade get in.

    He'll eventually get in, but he's absolutely not a first ballot hall of famer.

    Look at the names on that list. Kobe, KG, Tim Duncan. He's not close to being in the same conversation as those guys.

    Yeah, my guess is Bosh is one of those guys that gets in when he's like 70 and people say "Oh yeah Bosh, he was a good player in his day."

    He'll get in eventually, agree with him not being first ballot.

    I thought Kobe was confirmed even before his death.

    In any case, he was an obvious first ballot HOFer. One of the top 5 most famous/popular basketball players, ever.
