Hard to say... I mean you

Hard to say... I mean you have to be a GOAT to be in the HOF.... I mean even guys like Rodman cant get in... That being said, I think that Durant is the only guy right now that looks to be a HOF type player... Next would be Evans but that is still unclear...

durant

Definitely i think will make it. as far as other guys go i think it depends on how long they keep doing things. i mean like if tyreke ends up averaging 20ppg 5ass and 5reb for a consecutive amount of years he may have a good shot. but its hard 2 say

Hall of Famers in this Class

Wall,Turner and Cousins could be hall of famers...outside shots to Monroe and Henry
Last year...Griffen, Evans, Curry, Jennings, Holiday,Derozen
Year before that...Beasley, Rose, Mayo, Westbrook, Lopez
Before that that...Durant, Oden....I'll check back with more.....????

Point is all these guys can still be Hall of Famers...guys like Durant are talked about like they belong already and Guys like Oden who was looked at like the walking reincarnation of Bill Russel can still have make or break points in the career...All these guys have a long way to go IMO...before any of them gets in...Rodman must be first...KD can score 30 for ten seasons and not be as important as a Rodman would be in todays game....

C'Mon man

he can turn "it" around...If averaging 15/7 is what "it" means...If he cleans up his act he might have a Zac Randolph type of career maybe even make a few all star teams...who knows become a model citizen...

Agreed

@TaylorCondrin, I'm with you, man. I'd take David Lee over Horford any day.

From the original post:

Curry- Is doing better than most people (myself included) expected, so I guess there's a chance if he keeps improving. It's still early days though.

Evans- Has a chance after a strong rookie year. If he maintains or improves his statistical averages and gets some wins, he would earn consideration.

Rose- Is looking the goods so far. Love this kid. Similar variables to Evans though.

Mayo- Will need to be more consistent but has a lot of talent.

Westbrook- Maybe...chances will be improved if he sticks with Durant for 10 years.

Kevin Durant- It's looking more likely with each new season. He'll have to stop improving soon right? Right? Definitely the most likely hall of fame candidate of the players mentioned when looking at what the have all accomplished to date.

Al Horford- Will need to be more dominant. Andrew Bogut should have been chosen as an All-Star reserve over Horford, as evidenced by his All-NBA third team selection.

Lopez- Could conceivably have a Duncan-esque career. Would need to win more than 12 games each year to have a legitimate chance.

Gordon- I don't see it just yet. I really like Eric Gordon but he'll need to develop more aspects to his game than just scoring. If Mitch Richmond makes the hall of fame, maybe Gordon has a shot.

Beasley- His talent is undeniable...but so was Derrick Coleman's. He seems to be maturing and I've seen him hustling on defense a lot more recently. Hopefully he becomes more Carmelo and less Jr Rider. As for hall of fame...he'll need to become more consistent and realize his potential.

Obviously, a lot would have to go right and it's very speculative but I could see Blake Griffin, Greg Oden, Brandon Jennings, Ricky Rubio (yes I'm a believer) and John Wall as potential future candidates.

I think as of right now Kevin

I think as of right now Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry, Rajon Rondo and Derrick Rose all have the looks of a potential HOF player. Tyreke Evans, Brandon Jennings, David Lee, Brook Lopez and Russell Westbrook all have the potential to get there as well.

Curry - will be a HOF

Curry - will be a HOF shooter
Evans - has to stay productive
Rose - the third best bull all time after jordan and pippen sure fire HOF and the way he is playing and progressing is crazy
Mayo - probably for the usa team not as an idividual
Westbrook - can be has time tho
Kevin Durant - first ballot HOF hands down
Al Horford - hell no
Lopez - same as mayo
Gordon - no
Beasley - no
