The Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame just inducted its 52nd class with Dennis Rodman, Artis Gilmore, Chris Mullin and my man, Arvydas Sabonis, headlining the class.
These four guys really exemplify the four types of players who get inducted into the Hall recently: a player who excelled on one side of the court for great teams; a long overlooked player from the past; a player whose NBA career is helped out by his college career; and a great international player.
On top of these types of guys, there are no-brainers like Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen in the previous two years, along with coaches, referees, basketball contributors and announcers.
It seems that in the past few years, there are some players that are borderline legendary that have been overlooked while some of the great players of the 1990s and early-2000s are retiring and becoming Hall eligible.
So, with so many great players out there, I have decided to take a look at everyone to dribble a basketball professionally who are not yet in the Hall and decided who has the best shot at getting in. These are the top 50.
