    No question he is the greatest in game dunker of all time.He will finish top 20 all time in points with 19.7 career ppg and without winning a title is he still a first balloter?

    I don't think he'll be first ballot, but i can see him going to the HOF at some point. It's just too bad in the way he left Toronto. Even if he stayed i don't think the Raptors would of done anything significant, they had bad management during that period of time.

    Not first ballot, but I think he has a pretty good shot of getting in at some point.

    A future HOFer, most likely, but i don't think 1st ballot.
    And if i''m wrong then you have the pleasure of telling someone on sherdog that they were wrong. Everyone wins

    Is this even true? Funny how fast we forget Shawn Kemp and 'Nique.

    Absolutely. Not many 8x NBA All-Stars don't make 1st ballot. Vince went from a flashy dunker/attacker and gradualy reinvented himself to extend his career and become #6 on the NBA career list for 3pm, all while being a career 19 ppg scorer (21 fkn seasons). In the middle there as he was evolving from dunker to 3pt shooter and had become a bit of both, you had a very complete scorer in the mid 20s ppg on solid efficiency. At his peak in 2005 with the Nuts he put up 28/6/5 on 56% TS. His career longevity + peak prime get him in for me

    You literally have no idea what you are talking about.

    @RR I'll throw Drexler into the conversation.
