Why not Fish?

Read a discussion thread about Pro Basketball and the Hall of Fame. Seemed to me it's a lot of 'My guy is better than your guy,' type answers. I'm thinking how about Derek Fisher? Should he be in the HOF? Lakers fan says , "No question, .004 Fish! You kiddin'?" But a Bull fan thinks for a minute and say, "Well, all depends. How about Brad Miller? He's just as good." My guys against your guys.

Maybe we should have some hard an fast rules. Player has to at least meet a set of standards before he can even be mentioned in the same sentence with Kareem, West, Magic, and Michael. He (she) has to have played at least X number of games in his career? Has to have played X number of years in the league? Time with the same team? FG percentage? Number of rebounds? Number of assists?

What 5 things should be mandatory, before we talk HOF?

Percentage of fouls outs? Times suspended? Should activities off the field have any barring? (Charity work vs Community service). Or should that count at all? Who should set these standards? Fans on line could set the standards? All around player better than someone who is supernatural on defense?

Minimum standards like these would sure cut a lot of the crap that flies when Mr Obnox starts telling you how his guy (no way!) is so absolute, so locked, so can't miss for Basketball's Hall of Fame.

What do you think?
