      He gets in for his international career before the NBA. He was already past his prime when he arrived in the US.

        You have no idea what you’re talking about, buddy. When he got to the NBA, he was only 26. By the time the Celtics cut him, he was only 29.

        This Hall of Fame is a sham.

    Why were only a few of the names released earlier this week? Had me thinking Ray Allen wasn’t gonna get in. Still brutal that Rudy T didn’t get in.
