Today, we know that the original 1992 Dream Team has 10 of its 12 members as Hall of Fame locks. However, imagine that in 1992, how many of those 12 guys were definately considered as Hall of Fame players?

If theis were 1992, the only lock for the Hall at that time were:

LOCKS
Larry Bird (1978)
Magic Johnson (1979)
Clyde Drexler (1983)
Michael Jordan (1984)
Charles Barkley (1984)
Karl Malone (1985)
Patrick Ewing (1985)

ON THE RIGHT PATH
John Stockton (1984)
Chris Mullin (1985)
Scottie Pippen (1987)

TOO YOUNG
David Robinson (1989)
Christian Leattner (1992)
