I may be jumping the gun here a bit, but whatever, say Melo never wins a title, and he keeps up what hes doing now, mostly his scoring output for say the next 6-10 years,will he be a HOF?
I keep forgetting this is his 7th year in the league,man how time flies.
for real i still feel like him and LeBron are 3rd years pro's. But anyways yes, Melo will be a hall of famer if he keeps up his current pace. If George Gervin and Karl Malone gets in without a championship then Carmelo defintley will be
They were my pick to win it all at the beginning of the year so this question might not even matter if the Lakers don't get in the way.
I said these things like 1 WEEK AGO WTF!
Yes, college championships count too.
Yea he's a H.O.F. if he gets a title. Possibly 1st ballot.
He's had a great career scoring wise, but I'm not so sure he's a lock to be in the Hall of Fame just yet.
- Lost in the first round of the playoffs the first five years of his career, being swept twice... Only winning one game three times.
- No NBA Finals appearances
- No All NBA 1st or 2nd Teams
- No All NBA Defensive Teams
- No MVP's
- No Scoring Titles
- No All-Star Game MVP's
Melo still has a lot of work to do before we can consider him a lock.
@Henry25... Karl Malone didn't win a ring, but take a look at his list of achievements. There probably won't be another power forward who'll be able to accomplish the things he did. George Gervin didn't win a ring either, but he led the league in scoring four times... Second to only Wilt and MJ. He also made the All-NBA 1st Team five times... The 2nd Team three times. So saying Melo will definitely get in because they did is silly...
No, what has he done that T-mac and VC haven't?
And do you think VC and T-Mac will be inducted into the Hall of Fame?
Unlike T-Mac and Vince....Carmelo has time to win a championship while being a top 2 option.
I say Carmelo is a borderline HOF but he needs to win more playoff series and If I was him- Go East. He would be a killer in the East.
