Eye on Basketball Podcast: Ricky Davis and Hall of Fame hopefuls

By Zach Harper | NBA writer

There isn't a lot of NBA news right now as we gear up for the start of training camp so Matt Moore and I decided to go over the current active players with the highest probability for the Basketball Hall of Fame and go over their qualifications. We've based this list off of the list and rankings provided on Basketball-Reference.com. We all know that guys like Kobe Bryant, Tim Duncan, and LeBron James are locks for the Hall of Fame. We're pretty sure that Dwyane Wade, Kevin Garnett, and Dirk Nowitzki are also locks. But what about guys like Paul Pierce, Ray Allen, Chris Bosh, and Chris Paul?

Do the international careers of Tony Parker and Pau Gasol make them locks for the Hall of Fame? Did Vince Carter and Tracy McGrady maximize their potential enough to be included in the Hall? Does the enshrinement of Bernard King make Carmelo Anthony's case for him? Does Dwight Howard have enough of a foothold in the history of the game already? Would you already put Kevin Durant in based on his short career?

We discuss all of that, plus why it's OK to joke about Mikhail Prokhorov, Ricky Davis' training camp invite with the New York Knicks, and much more.
