Default Manu Ginobili, Argentina unable to win worlds

San Antonio Express-News: Manu Ginobili's final attempt at a title in Japan ended as his final attempt in San Antonio ended last spring. With a drive that produced no points. This time, instead of shooting as he did against the Mavericks, he passed to an open teammate who missed.
And with that loss came another. Had Argentina beaten Spain that day and followed with another win over Greece, Ginobili would have completed an unprecedented run of global championships.
Given that, wouldn't he have been a lock for the Basketball Hall of Fame?
The question doesn't fit for a one-time NBA All-Star who averages below 15 points — except that some think Ginobili is already destined for the Hall of Fame. He's exactly the kind of candidate this club embraces.

The requirements for this Hall aren't as statistically quantifiable as they are in baseball. The standards are broad and eclectic; Meadowlark Lemon and Chick Hearn are in, as well as a dozen referees.
