I'm sure you've all heard by now Magic, Larry Brown, Lute Olson and others have been elected to the Hall of Fame and all seem to be deserving. The ONE person that I wonder if they're as deserving to be in the Hall of Fame is Drazen Pedrovic?

Now I recall him being an AMAZING scorer, however in the NBA he only put up amazing numbers for only two years. He had some amazing numbers in Europe however if the NBA are recognizing great European players wouldn't Sabonis and Kukoc also be candidates for the Hall of Fame someday?

It is a 'basketball' hall of fame and not an NBA one right? In which case Petrovic and Sabonis definitely should get recognition--Kukoc maybe. Petrovic was also important as in international pioneer into the US.

Well that makes sense to me. I know they induct college coaches but I thought that was because of their contributions to the USA basketball team. However that makes sense then, and I didn't have a problem with it I was just wondering what were the guidelines.

I would like to see Sabonis voted in someday. I recall seeing some footage on him and some of his numbers and he put up some AMAZING numbers as well before he had the knee problems.

Well, my answer's not definitive, but I do think the Hall is defined as simply basketball and not 'NBA basketball'. Isn't Cheryl Miller in it?

There are several women in the basketball hall. I think you are correct Hoops.

You're right she is in there. I think Nancy Lieberman Kline is too.
