Manu is a lock for the Hall of Fame, believe it or not.

One of only two players to ever win a NBA Championship, A Euro-league championship and a gold guys have to remember, the Basketball Hall of Fame looks at all of your achievements at all levels of competitive play. Manu is guaranteed a spot just based off of that.

This doesn't have anything to do with your question, but looking at the info you provided...

This guy won "Most Improved Player" THREE YEARS IN A ROW in the Italian League??? This guy must have started as absolute, complete trash to be able to win "Most Improved" 3 years in a row!

Looking at his NBA stats isn't impressive at all... until you glance over at the minutes per game column... THEN it gets a lot more impressive.

No if NBA only.  But since other leagues and olympics and all that count, maybe. 

But NBA hall of fame only, no way.

I'd say no... But I wouldn't be surprsied if he did get in. He has accomplishments on different levels & leagues of pay, not just the NBA.

YES. This isn't the NBA Hall of Fame. Add all of his international accomplishments to his NBA rings and he's a lock.

No way in hell. Manu is a very good player and a certified champion both on paper and mentally, but in order to be a hall of famer you need to either have been a pioneer of basketball overseas early in its infant stages overseas, or be a straight up dominant foreigner like dirk.

U make it in the hall of fame for being a star among the nbas all-stars for a long period of time. Manu has never even been close to an elite player.

its not a stretch to say he gets in

i still cant make up my mind whether hate him or like him
