He's still only 32 with several years left to play.

He won't have the sexy averages once his career is over (right now sits at 15.1 PPG, 5.6 APG, 41% shooting...and most of those will only go down) buthe'll go down as a winner and several more seasons of playoff basketball will only help his case.

If he retired right now with another trip to the Finals? No.

Kevin Johnson..PFFFFFFFF. Of course he didn't make it into the hall. He didn't do much outside of all star appearances.

I'm pretty sure KJ averaged like 18 and 10 for his career (those #'s might be slightly off, better than Chauncey's). Took the suns tothe finals one year (along with Charles obviosuly). Was all NBA 2nd team 4 times and All NBA 3rd Team once (Better than Chauncey). He doesn't have thechampionship on his resume but I'd say he's pretty comparable. Also, if he played in today's NBA he'd be a top 5 point guard easily.

He took the Finals MVP+Ring>>Kevin Johnson. And I watched Kevin Johnson all my life. No bias here..

But think about how much longer Chauncey has to go in his career. He on a clear cut path to the hall..there's no denying that.

If he wins another Finals MVP, I say yes (I know this isn't really fair).

Otherwise Billups's just had a very good career, not a HOF-caliber career.

Gimme a couple more solid seasons and I'll support Billups.

If he retired today, no.

Okay see..this is what i'm saying right here. Give him a couple more solid seasons and there would be no reason why he shouldn't be in the hall.Especially if he added a few more accolades to his resume.

Chancey is one player where his stats don't indicate his inpact at all and I generally call %%+@*!@% on intangibles but the traditional PPG, RPG APGdon't tell you his level of efficiency when he runs the point.

Chancey Buillips I believe is 16th all time in offensive efficiency that's good for top 5 amongst point guards.

History has a funny way of unfolding sometimes and in the future, that definitely might be the case. It seems that most of the time that winning a Championshipcarries much more weight than just being a superstar who never won.

You made the BIGGEST point for Team Billups. Billups is a floor general dude has been playing ball in May for years now. I think he gets in maybenot first time but he gets in.
