Default Will Amare make the hall of fame?

Assuming Amare will have at least 2-3 more seasons of similar career numbers and all star appearances, what are his chances of making the hall of fame? I have always been a huge fan of his even before the Knicks, and I'd like to think he has a decent chance.

He should. If you look at the type of players that made it into the HOF in the past Amar'e would definitely not be the worst player in there. He is a legit all-star/franchise player, as he has proven this year in NY and has put up great numbers.

I don't see why not.

He'll most likely make it. I can see him finishing his career with 10 or more all star appaerances and he already has 5 all nba selections. He has nice career numbers and has been a big name in the league for years.

Your username Matt Geiger was awesome. Looked like a pro wrestler. Was a beast on NBA Live 2000. lol.

Hard one, it depends on his future perfomances.
'Til now he's never even cracked the top 5 MVP voting list and he's only been on the ALL-NBA first team once.

I doubt it. Unless he really improves and has many more years of great production. I think he will go down as a very good player.

He's only 28, so I expect similar production for at least another 4 years at his position. It would be no surprise to me if he ends up with around 20/9 averages for his career and with 10+ all-star appearances. This includes multiple trips into the play-offs, better play-off numbers relative to his regular season performance, and as of right now he is in a good foundation with him and Carmelo as the cornerstone to one of the biggest markets in the history of the NBA.

15-20 years down the road, his lack of defense won't be as magnified as it it now. Based on what I mentioned above, I have no reason to believe why he would not make the Hall of Fame.

Rookie of the year 2003
All NBA first team 2007
All NBA second team 2011,2010,2008,2005
All-Star 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008, 2007, 2005
Career Average ; 22 ppg, 8,8 rpg, 1,5 bpg, 54 % FG
Playoff Average ; 23,5 ppg, 9,1 rpg, 1,7 bpg
I think he will make the hall of fame, also the way he plays the game, really exciting player and one of the most athletic big man to ever play this game. Also will probably end up with like 10 all star games, that's a lot.

It is possible. But he would have to go on a serious run, in which he leads the league (or be top 5) in blocks, scoring, and rebounding. Then he would have to lead the Knicks to some ECF runs. There are a lot of former NBA players not in the HOF who were equal or better than Amare. On that list are, Bernard King, Marques Johnson, Syndey Moncrief, and Jamaal Wilkes. Just to name a few.

Amar'e is better than a fair amount of players in the Hall of Fame already, dude (KC Jones? Tom Gola? Bill Bradley? . IMO He's better than all those guys you listed too with the exception of Bernard King pre-injury.

NBA Rookie of the Year (2003)
NBA Rookie Challenge MVP (2004)
6 NBA All-Star (2005, 2007–2011)
All-NBA First Team (2007)
4 All-NBA Second Team (2005, 2008, 2010, 2011)
NBA All-Rookie First Team (2003)

He'll make it. Especially with that resume already and assuming another 4-5 years of similar production.


Here's another stat. Every eligible player that has 8 All Star appearances has made the HOF, except one. Larry Foust....from the 1950's.....???? (Guys like Iverson and Gary Payton aren't eligible yet).

So if Amare gets 2 more, virtual lock.

As of now, no. 3-4 more years of 25/9 or similar production, he'll have a good shot.
