Hall of Fame or Not?

Just give me your opinion on whether these players should be hall of famers,
Put Yes or No and you could give a reason why, if its to early to tell,
just say that or you could say what you think will happen to them later and if they will be a hall of famer later in their careers

Wonder why people have Elton

Wonder why people have Elton Brand as a no, he averaged 20 points and 10 rebounds for like the first 10 years of his career. That is pretty impressive stuff, I think only 4 active people can say that.

What has EB won? Nothing. He

What has EB won? Nothing. He has 1 career playoff appearance as well.

His career numbers? 19-9-2-2 which is impressive but the player doesn't scream HOF to me.

Lebron has 2 MVP's and a gold

Lebron has 2 MVP's and a gold medal. Most players can't say the accomplished that in a career and he is just entering his prime. There in no way you can say LBJ isn't a Hall of Fame on the pace he is at.

Hall

I wouldn't be as lenient as most of the people who have commented have. How can Monta Ellis, Josh Smith barring massive improvement to his game, Amare Stoudamire, Danny Granger make it? I highly doubt they will.
LeBron is. Period. End of story. Nobody with his combination of fame and talent could miss, especially if a guy like Pau Gasol, Ray Allen, Ben Wallace, Chauncey Billups, Brandon Roy, or Vince Carter is considered.
LeBron will make it if he retire if the Cavs lose this round and he retires after the year. He is already an iconic player, the top player of this generation, who is also popular and well liked. It is not like he is Barry Bonds, a great player who is hated by the fans and media (even before he was known to use PEDs).

Ben Wallace has like how man

Ben Wallace has like how man defensive of the year awards...like 4 i def think he should be...not to mention on a championship team...i think the best defensive player on a championship team should always be a in the hall of fame..maybe not a first ballot but def a hall of fame
and Chancy billups should as well since him being a finals mvp who beat my Los angeles Lakers...i think if Ray allen is in the there Chauncy should as well..

ben wallace's career stats:

ben wallace's career stats: 6.2ppg, 10.1 reb, 2.1blcks

would we even mention his name if it wasnt for the title? He made the all defensive first team 5 times winning the DPOY 4 of those times. But he was a role player early in his career and faded away quick after he left detroit and went to chicago and cleavland. I think it takes more then a 5 year stretch of great defense to make the hall of fame.

Are we all just assuming that Jason Kidd is a lock for the HOF?

Not based on right now, based

Not based on right now, based on future career as well
Kobe Bryant: Yes (Top 10 all time)
Dwayne Wade: Yes (might end up top 30 all time, especially if he ends up on a contender)
Allen Iverson: Yes (scoring numbers are too much to deny him HOF)
Pau Gasol: Yes (that's a weak yes, could go either way)
LeBron James: Yes (Top 10 all time)
Paul Pierce: Yes (although I can't stand him, he is a future hall of famer)
Ray Allen: Yes (see Paul Pierce)
Kevin Garnett: Yes (see Paul Pierce)
Tim Duncan: Yes (Top 10 all time)
Tracy McGrady: No (only had a few strong years and the fact he never got out of the first round of the playoffs hurts him)
Vince Carter: Yes (barely)
Carmelo Anthony: Yes (prolific scorer, has work to do though)
Ron Artest: No (but he'll have his own exhibit for the Malice at the Palace)
Kevin Martin: No (no chance)
Gilbert Arenas: No (legal trouble, injuries, not so much)
Carlos Boozer: No (close, but not quite the new age Karl Malone)
Elton Brand: No (overpaid, overrated)
Andrew Bynum: No (seems to get injured every year, and not that great anyways)
Chauncey Billups: Yes (best player on 1 championship team, consistently solid)
Monta Ellis: No (soon Steph Curry will replace him as GS's number 1 guy)
Rudy Gay: No (not close)
Danny Granger: No (iffy, if he keeps scoring like he does he is the modern day Alex English)
Grant Hill: No (would've been if injuries hadn't hampered him)
Dwight Howard: Yes (defensive force, could develop a better offensive game in upcoming years too, and a title threat)
Joe Johnson: No (same boat as Danny Granger)
Yao Ming: Yes (maybe not for his actual play, but for his impact internationally yes)
Steve Nash: Yes (2 time MVP, one of the top point guards of the decade)
Dirk Nowitzki: Yes (best European player ever in NBA)
Jermaine O'Neal: No (overpaid, overrated... same story as Elton Brand)
Shaquille O'Neal: Yes (most dominant center in NBA history)
Rip Hamilton: No (didn't do enough)
Ben Wallace: No (too much of an offensive liability)
Dikembe Mutombo: Yes (too many defensive poy and block leads to deny him)
Zach Randolph: No (really?)
Brandon Roy: Yes (along as his knee holds up)
Amar'e Stoudemire: Yes (the guy for what is gonna be a western conference championship contender this year)
Josh Smith: No (won’t even be in the conversation)
Rasheed Wallace: Yes (has 1 championship ring, and is a big reason that Detroit got there)
Gerald Wallace: No (good player, not great)
Stephen Jackson: No (he’ll be featured in the Malice at the Palace exhibit too)
DENNIS RODMAN: Yes (how can’t he be)
BERNARD KING: Yes (might be the most underrated player from the 1980’s)

In my opinion Chris Paul, Deron Williams, and Kevin Durant are future hall of famers. Rajon Rondo, Derrick Rose, and Stephen Curry should be in this conversation over guys like Josh Smith, Monta Ellis and Kevin Martin.
