7. Rashard Lewis

Drafted later than most pundits thought he would be (he was 32nd overall and the last waiting in the “green room”, Rashard Lewis would blossom into stardom with the SuperSonics.  In the 2004-05 season, Lewis would make his first of two All Star Games (his second would be with the Orlando Magic) and rattle off three straight 20 Point per Game seasons.  He remains one of the most prolific three point shooter in Sonics/Thunder history.

The 2020 Basketball Futures are up

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 2020

Antawn Jamison, a star at UNC and a two time NBA All Star as well as a former Sixth Man of the Year.

Jermaine O’Neal, a six time All Star and three time post season All NBA selection.

Josh Howard, a one time NBA All Star. 

Rashard Lewis, a two time NBA All Star and NBA Champion with the Miami Heat in 2013.

Take a look at this group of basketball players who will be eligible for the Hall of Fame in 2020 and let us know if any of them Hall of Famers.

We have updated our Basketball List

We mentioned that due to the abrupt alteration of the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame’s changing of eligibility rules from five years to three years after retirement would necessitate a rapid change in our basketball list. We have done just that!

Normally when we do a significant revision we take into account your votes and comments. We are not doing that this time, as we will hold off until the change after the announcement of the next class, which will be announced during the Final Four. Rather, we are just inputting those who are now eligible into the slots where we feel they belong.

Here are the new entries to our Basketball List:

68. Rashard Lewis

A highly recruited player out of high school, Rashard Lewis was a successful forward who would forego university and go right to the pros. Lewis would prove to be a sweet shooter from behind the arc and would lead the NBA in three point field goals made in the 2008-09 season. The two time All Star would earn a championship ring with the Miami Heat as a role player and retired with a respectable 14.9 Points per Game Average and a 16.9 PER; though respectable does not a Hall of Famer make.
