Really? Well then....... lol

That’s some **** luck with the timing. Being a “first ballot” HoFer has an extra distinction to it that he’s deserving of...

Tracy McGrady was a 7x All NBA player and 2x scoring champ. How does Bosh's resume come anything close to that, either than getting to play alongside LeBron and Wade. McGrady was the far superior player.

Dino Radja is in the hall of fame. A fringe rotation player for some mediocre Celtic teams.

Bosh spent his spent his Raptors career putting up big stats for lottery teams. He was above .500 only once. Then he ran off to Miami for a couple of freebie rings as the 3rd wheel for LeBron & Wade.

He was gifted 11 straight All-Star appearances, because there was hardly any competition for big men in the East. His biggest competition was an aging Kevin Garnett. In the West, it was blood bath. Prime Garnett, prime Dirk, prime Duncan, Amare, Pau, Aldridge, Randolph...

If Bosh had spent his career in the West, he'd have maybe 3 All-Stars in his entire career. And people wouldn't even think of him as a Hall-of-Famer. He'd be on the same level as Zach Randolph.

This is great news.

Teaming up with other great players to win a ring shouldn't get you in the HOF hell it shouldn't even get you in the conversation. The problem though is the HOF is so watered down whats the point of having standards?

How come nobody claims or says how the East was an alleged joke conference, he won only 3 playoff games in 7yrs with the label of superstar for half those years and needed a superteam just to get out of the first round?

He doesnt deserve the same superstar criticisms that others get for their shortcomings??

I dont think Bosh was ever considered a superstar in Toronto, he was always a second tier star.

It's a loaded HoF class. No shame in missing out. I'm sure he will be accepted in the next few years.

So he goes to Miami, puts up worse averages across the board but gets the label of superstar for that?

I've read for almost 10yrs now about the 3 superstars who spent 4yrs together in Miami and how they ruined the competition in the East.

KG would be a legit HOF even if he never won a ring.

To me that is the HOF test. Strip away the rings and how good is the player? With Bosh the answer is easy not good enough he was never viewed as the best PF and his career was cut short.

Chris Paul to me is another guy who is a definite HOF even if he never wins a ring. Russell Westbrook on the otherhand...

You can't compare players from different years because there might be situations where we get a strong class... like this one.

Duncan and Garnett are two of the greatest Power Forwards of all time.
Don't need to explain Kobe.

A lot of good players wouldn't make it this class.

they said they were going to limit the amount of inductees this year because of Kobe. KG and Duncan were too good to have to wait a year, Bosh isn't in that tier.

This is dumb. He should have been at least a finalist. There can be up to 14 finalists. 10 from the North American committee and 4 from the women’s committee. It isn’t about choosing Bosh over any of the current finalists as they did not reach the limit.

Bosh is getting overrated. As far as I am concerned his 2 rings don't mean anything. He was a third fiddle who pretty much was a spot up shooter for the Heat while Bron/Wade controlled everything. As "the man" in Toronto he accomplished nothing. Unfortunate he had a chance to prove himself after Bron left Miami but his career got ended due to injury.

I have more of an argument for Webber or Marques Johnson than Bosh!
