Our 2017 Basketball Revisions are Complete! Jason Kidd to #1 http://www.notinhalloffame.com/home/news/8426-our-2017-basketball-revisions-are-complete-jason-kidd-to-1 http://www.notinhalloffame.com/home/news/8426-our-2017-basketball-revisions-are-complete-jason-kidd-to-1 Our 2017 Basketball Revisions are Complete!  Jason Kidd to #1
As always with us at Notinhalloffame.com it is always a continuing process!When one Hall of Fame Class gets in, we need to look at updating our respective lists.  As such, we are proud to announce that we have updated our Notinhalloffame.com Basketball List.The recent class only claimed two former players off of the ranking, Tracy McGrady (#2) and George McGinnis (#12) but there are quite a few former players who we feel are deserving of a rank and much like the other lists, we have plans to increase the number from the even 100 to 200.  For now, we now have a less than perfect number of 106, but that will only be a temporary number.Let’s get to the new rankings shall we?Although our #1 was not chosen, we have a new star at the top of our perch.  Five time First Team All NBA Selection Jason Kidd debuts at #1.  The current coach of the Milwaukee Bucks is a ten time All Star and is currently #2 all-time in Steals and Assists.  Chris Webber was ranked #1 last year, and he drops to #2.  We have been long since championing Webber for the Hall, and while he did not get selected last year, he finally was named a Finalist for the first time, which at least gives us reason to be optimistic.  At #3, we have another new entrant, Grant Hill.  A two time NCAA Champion at Duke, Hill was a major star in the NBA, tallying seven trips to the All Star Game, until severe injuries took him off of that level, though this is still a man who played 18 years in the NBA.While there are many new entrants, only Jason Kidd and Grant Hill crack the top ten.Seven Time Al-Star Jack Sikma remains in the #4 spot.  Sikma helped the Seattle SuperSonics win the NBA Championship.Sidney Moncrief dropped two spots to #5.  While he dropped here (mostly due to the eligibility of Kidd and Hill) he is coming off being named a Finalist.Former multi-time NBA Defensive Player of the Year Ben Wallace swapped places with former Seattle star, Shawn Kemp at #6 and #7 respectively.  Max Zaslofsky remains at number 8.  Zaslofsky was a First Team All BAA/NBA Selection from the 1946-47 season to the 1949-50 season. Two time NBA Champion with the Detroit Pistons, Mark Aguire tumbled from #5 to #9.  Aguire was also a…

Tim Hardaway feels that his 2007 anti-gay rant keeps him out of the Hall http://www.notinhalloffame.com/home/news/9557-tim-hardaway-feels-that-his-2007-anti-gay-rant-keeps-him-out-of-the-hall http://www.notinhalloffame.com/home/news/9557-tim-hardaway-feels-that-his-2007-anti-gay-rant-keeps-him-out-of-the-hall Tim Hardaway feels that his 2007 anti-gay rant keeps him out of the Hall
In an interview with Hoops Hype, Tim Hardaway stated that the reason that he was not in the Basketball Hall of Fame was due to an interview he had with Dan LeBetard which was anti-gay. He had this to say to Hoops Hype: "Well, you know, the reason I'm not in is because of what I said in 2007 about gay people.  That's why I'm not in right now, and I understand it. I hurt a lot of people's feelings and it came off the wrong way and it was really bad of me to say that. Since then, I've turned a wrong into a right. My parents used to always tell me, 'If you do something wrong, look it in the eye. Don't back down from it and be scared of it. Go make it right and make people understand that you made a mistake.” For those who may have forgotten what he said in 2007, take a look below: You know, I hate gay people, so I let it be known. I don't like gay people and I don't like to be around gay people. I am homophobic. I don't like it. It shouldn't be in the world or in the United States. (In regards to having a gay teammate) First of all, I wouldn't want him on my team. And second of all, if he was on my team, I would, you know, really distance myself from him because, uh, I don't think that's right. And you know I don't think he should be in the locker room while we're in the locker room. I wouldn't even be a part of that. Pretty brutal right?  The reaction against Hardaway was swift and he was removed from that year’s All Star festivities. Hardaway has been contrite since that time and has been active in LGBTQ rights since then. The question now that has to be asked is Tim Hardaway right? Hardaway has a strong resume as he was part of the famed Run TMC Offense on Golden State with Mitch Richmond and Chris Mullin who are both already inducted.  A five time All Star, in our eyes it is more significant that he is a five time All-NBA Selection with one First Team, three Second Teams and one Third Team.  Stat wise he is solid with five 20 Point per Game seasons and three 10 Assist per Game seasons, but it should…

Tim Hardaway and the Golden State Warriors Retired Numbers http://www.notinhalloffame.com/home/news/9900-tim-hardaway-and-the-golden-state-warriors-retired-numbers http://www.notinhalloffame.com/home/news/9900-tim-hardaway-and-the-golden-state-warriors-retired-numbers Tim Hardaway and the Golden State Warriors Retired Numbers
Normally we don’t talk about retired numbers until it become official, but we will touch on this story as some more meat on the bone has been added. Following the moves of Kevin Durant to Brooklyn and Andre Iguodala to Memphis, the Golden State Warriors announced that sometime in the future that they would retire their numbers.  Both were vital to the recent championships for the franchise so it is not unexpected, though this announcement does seem early. When asked about this, former Warriors star, Tim Hardaway said that his friends had the following to say in an interview to SF Gate:   I'm laughing because as soon as they said Kevin Durant's number's gonna get retired, here they go, he said, 'Man that's some BS.  How they gonna retire his number and he only played there for three years and you played there for six years, and you giving them all the sweat and tears and everything like that and they're not gonna retire your number.'" But, you know they deserve it, you know they won championships, man. They won championships, they was there, not to say I shouldn't be up there, but you know I can feel what Joe Lacob is saying and he wanna bring them joy and show them gratitude for what they did for the city.” In the interview, Hardaway wanted to make it clear that it was the opinions of his friends and not of himself. Hardaway was a member of the famous RUN-TMC trio with Chris Mullin and Mitch Richmond.  Mullin’s number has been retired, but he is also in the Basketball Hall of Fame.  As of this writing, Hardaway and Richmond are not. At present, Golden State had retired six numbers: Wilt Chamberlain (#13), Tom Meschery (#14), Alvin Attles (#16), Chris Mullin (#17), Rick Barry (#24) and Nate Thurmond (#42). We will definitely be paying attention to this one!

11. Tim Hardaway http://www.notinhalloffame.com/basketball/1703-17-tim-hardaway http://www.notinhalloffame.com/basketball/1703-17-tim-hardaway 11. Tim Hardaway
Tim Hardaway was the catalyst of the famed Run TMC (with Chris Mullin and Mitch Richmond) for the Golden State Warriors that took the NBA by storm in the early 90s.  Hardaway was a point guard who set the running style of the Warriors in motion.  When traded to Miami in 96, Hardaway teamed with Alonzo Mourning to make the Heat title contenders.  Hardaway was also a great perimeter shooter who opponents could not leave open and he became the undisputed master of the crossover dribble with his mad dashes to the basket.  A 5 time All-Star and 5 time All NBA performer, Hardaway definitely has the credentials statistically with over 15,000 points and 7,000 assists.  Best remembered for his ability to get to the hoop and then dish, Hardaway is one of the best pure point guards in league history and arguably the best at his position not in the Basketball Hall of Fame.
