2018 Basketball Eligibles

With his year of eligibility pushed back from his attempts to get back in the big time through the D-League, Antoine Walker is sadly best known for his financial woes more than anything he did on the court. In his playing career, his best seasons were with Boston, where along with Paul Pierce his three pointers excited crowds (though he probably took too many) and…
A two-time All Star, Baron Davis was a College star at UCLA who would become the third overall pick of the Charlotte Hornets in 1999. As a member of the Hornets, he would have his best run statistically, and still perform well after moving to Golden State. Although some during his run criticized Davis with the Clippers, he did put up some solid statistics and…
Although his career Points per Game average is less than six, and he never finishes a season averaging a double figure in points, it was Ben Wallace’s punishing defense that makes him a Hall of Fame candidate. Wallace is a four time NBA Defensive Player of the Year and despite being a little undersized at Center, was an amazing rebounder and shot blocker. Big Ben…
He was not the prototypical center, as Brad Miller was more comfortable passing and taking jump shots than banging in the paint. Still, with the right offense, Miller was very effective and was a legitimate two time All Star; though there were not exactly a lot of good centers when he played. Miller likely won’t be a Hall of Fame threat, but he had a…
Possibly the most intriguing possibility for the Basketball Hall of Fame in 2018 is “Agent Zero”, Gilbert Arenas. For a three year stretch, Arenas was an All Star and averaged over 25 Points per Game with a PER over 20 in those three seasons. He was lights out behind the arc and earned three post season All NBA births (one Second Team and two Third…
Jamaal Magloire was the second Canadian in history to be named to an NBA All Star Team, which occurred in 2003-04, easily his best season of note. That season Magloire posted his only double double in a season, though he would never be regarded as a dominating presence again. With a sub 15.0 career PER and a 7.2 Points per Game average we don’t suspect…
Mehmet Okur holds the distinction of being the first Turkish born Basketball player to win a championship in the NBA (Detroit in 2004) and the first to play in the All Star game (2007). Okur had his best seasons with the Utah Jazz where he flirted with a twenty point per game average. It does not make him a serious contender for the Hall of…
Playing all but one season with the Milwaukee Bucks, Michael Redd came out of Ohio State with a sweet shot and huge potential. Despite being a late pick in the NBA Draft, Redd would be a prolific scorer for Milwaukee until a severe ACL injury rendered him into a shell of his former self. Redd retired with a Points per Game Average of 19.0 with…
Although Mike Bibby never played in an NBA All Star Game, the Point Guard had a respectable 14.6 Points per Game Average and a career PER of 16.1. Although he was not necessarily elite, he was very good and put up good season and career numbers in Steals, Three Pointers and Assists; all numbers you want from a Point Guard. What doe help his cause…

    85.  Sean Burke
    Although the career of Sean Burke was a long and prosperous one, it can be argued that he didn’t live up to the overall expectations that he came with when he entered the National Hockey League. Burke was a star for the Canadian National Team. Many thought that his first NHL team (New Jersey) would go only as far as…
