    Not that it's important in the grand scheme, but this sucks for Duncan and KG.

    They were all time greats as well and their HOF induction is basically gonna be reduced to a side note in all of the coverage outside of San Antonio and Minnesota.

    He might get more coverage in Boston, but with his limited time there and the Laker/Celtic dynamic in play I don't see him outshining Kobe's death.

    Nobody wants to outshine the tragedy of a decade in the NBA.

    The Boston/LA rivalry is what makes this interesting.

    Get your sentiment, KG and Duncan and Kobe would have been more joyous if he was alive.

    Best HOF class of all time?

    Still it will be bittersweet.

    That's draft class. Barkey was 2006 HOF, Olajuwon in 2007, Jordan in 2009.

    Is it the NBA hall of fame, or just basketball hall of fame? I thought the later... which in part contributes to the lower standards relative to looking at it on an "NBA-level"

    I think it would be neat to have a super-elite NBA player only sub-section that was baseball-esque in its difficulty to get in, but won't happen.

    It's for all basketball. Hence, Ralph Sampson.
