For most of the NBA regular season, the focus is on the current players, what they’re doing right now, and how it’s going to get them closer to a championship. As we wade through the final stages of the offseason, though, I want to take a quick second and look beyond the upcoming 2017-18 campaign. I want to take a long-term approach today, keying in on the current NBA players who are destined to be immortalized in the hallowed halls of the Pro Basketball Hall of Fame someday.
We’ll start with the biggest names in the game right now, and work our way down to some of the other former greats who are still sticking it out in the league as their careers come to a close. For your reference, the players’ Hall of Fame Probability (via Basketball Reference) is included.
Just an FYI – if the probability is N/A, it’s because the player doesn’t have 400 career games under his belt yet.
