The 2018 Basketball Futures have been revised.

As always, it is onward and upward for us at

It was not that long ago that we revamped our Basketball section and named Allen Iverson as our new number one player who should be considered for the Basketball Hall of Fame.  Following this, we endeavored to work on our futures section and update them accordingly.

As such, we are pleased to present to you the men who are now part of our updated Basketball Futures Section who will be eligible in 2018. 

Antoine Walker, a former three time All Star and forward most known for his time with the Boston Celtics. 

Baron Davis, who twice led the NBA in Steals per Game.

Ben Wallace, a four time NBA Defensive Player of the Year and member of the Detroit Pistons 2004 Championship Team.

Brad Miller, a two time All Star from Purdue.

Gilbert Arenas, a controversial figure but also a former Second Team All Star and two time Third Team All Star.

Jamaal Magloire, a one time All Star and one of the first Canadian born stars in the NBA.

Mehmet Okur, a Turkish born player and former All Star most notably with the Utah Jazz.

Michael Redd, a star for years with the Milwaukee Bucks and one time Third Team All Star. 

Mike Bibby, who had some good seasons notably with the Sacramento Kings and was a former NCAA champion with Arizona.

Take a look at this group and cast your opinion on to whether this crop of players are Hall of Fame worthy.

As always, we thank you all for your support!

The Basketball HOF List has been revised. Webber back at #1, Wallace debuts at #6

We are thrilled here at to unveil our latest major update to the site.

Last month, the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame announced its latest class prompting us to revise our list for the upcoming year. 

Recapping, four men from our Basketball list advanced to Springfield and that included our top three (Shaquille O’Neal, Allen Iverson & Yao Ming) and Zelmo Beatty, who was ranked at #20 on our list from last year.  With those four out and with new entries eligible, the state of the list has changed.  Along with all of your votes and comments, here is the new top ten on the Basketball List.

#1. Chris Webber

Webber returns to our top spot, though he has never been named a Finalist.  This is likely due to his controversy at the University of Michigan, where he was banned from the program for years for accepting money from boosters resulting in the forfeiture of wins and Final Four appearance, though we believe his overall success in the game supersedes that.

#2. Sidney Moncreif

This is Moncreif’s highest rank and the two time Defensive Player of the Year has five post-season All-NBA Selections to his credit.

#3. Jack Sikma

Sikma climbs to the number three spot and is a seven time NBA All-Star. 

#4. Mark Aguirre

Three time All Star, and two time NBA Champion with the Detroit Pistons, Mark Aguirre also has reached his highest rank since we have created our Basketball List.

#5. Shawn Kemp

Shawn Kemp reaches the top five for the first time and is a six time NBA All-Star.

#6. Ben Wallace

This is the highest debut for the new list.  Ben Wallace is a four time Defensive Player of the Year and made five post season All-NBA Teams.  Wallace is also a NBA Champion in 2004 with the Detroit Pistons.

#7. Max Zaslofsky

Every year, another rise for four time First Team All-NBA Selection from the 1950’s, Max Zaslofsky.

#8. Tim Hardaway

Hardaway is a former Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame Finalist.  He is a five time NBA All-Star.

#9. Maurice Lucas

A former NBA Champion with the Portland Trail Blazers, Maurice Lucas made five All Star Teams.

#10. Kevin Johnson

Johnson cracks the top ten for the first time and is a three time All-Star.

While Ben Wallace is the only former player to debut in the top ten, there are three other additions to this year’s list.

#34. Gilbert Arenas

Arenas had a controversial career but he is a former three time Post Season All-Star and at one point in his career seemed like he was on a Hall of Fame path.

#64. Michael Redd

Redd had some good seasons with Milwaukee and is a former Third Team All-NBA Selection.

#76. Antoine Walker

A former Celtic, Walker was a star for a time but is more known for his financial hardships after his career ended.

You know what we want you to do!  

Check out the new rankings and entries and give us your comments and thoughts!

86. Michael Redd

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 a PER of 19.7 which while decent, may not be Hall of Fame material; especially since he only made one Post Season NBA All Star Team.
