    What happened between Stoudemire and Phoenix to make him feel this way? I think he will regret this all the way. Nash didn't win a ring in Phoenix but he will have his number in the rafters there.

    HoF is full of people like him and worse players, people somehow have the impression that it's for champions and MVPs only.

    Yao was infinitely better at basketball, especially If you consider the defensive side of the ball.

    If Webber isn't in the HOF then Amare shouldn't be in there.

    I consider him more of a Suns than a Knicks.

    Nope not my impression for the HOF.

    What did he do in the NBA and/or for basketball as whole to be in the HOF?

    This is asked by someone who was a huge Stat fan.

    Yao definitely had more skills an potential than Amare. Too bad he was made of glass. Attendance is part of the grade.

    6x All-Star
    1x All-NBA 1st team
    4x All-NBA 2nd team

    He'll probably get in.

    If they overpaid me $80-100 mil after my best years were behind me, i'd retire for that franchise too...

    He only ever went to the conference finals twice - both with the Phoenix Suns.
