Hall of Fame is closing today theoretical 

Post#1 » by durantbird » Fri Jun 11, 2021 8:06 am

Suppose Hall of Fame is closing today, and you can only add 5 active players, considering LeBron out of discussion as the clear first choice (i.e. 5 except Bron). Who are you getting in?

Paul, Durant, Curry are also locks.

I'd take Harden and Giannis with the other two spots.

Five including LeBron or five in addition to LeBron?

(1) Steph Curry
(2) Kevin Durant
(3) Chris Paul
(4) James Harden

all are locks I think. If I get one more, it would feel weird not having Giannis there as a two-time MVP.

In addition, I'll clarify this in the first post

My choice is similar to the two preceding comments: Curry, Durant, Paul, Harden, but with Kawhi at 5th instead of Giannis

Kevin Durant
Steph Curry
Chris Paul
Kawhi Leonard
James Harden

Giannis and Jokic are well on their way but they haven't done enough yet for me to take their careers over Kawhi or Harden.

CP3/KD/Steph/Harden like most everyone else, but as of today I think I'd go Westbrook 5th.

'18-'19 5th of 18
'19-'20 2nd of 17

No Draymond Green?
