Put Horry in right after Steve Kerr.

Sorry, but you don't get into the Hall with his numbers....not even close....

I voted "no," but I don't agree with the last statement. Many of the Celtics of the 60s were lucky to be playing with Bill Russell, but they still belong.

Horry is a great player and has made an astounding number of big shots. But he is not a "dominant player" of his era and that doesn't qualify him for the HOF.

He is probably top 100 of all time as far as 3 pt attempts, made, percentage, steals, blocks...

And if you rank his playoff numbers, I think he is the all time leader for 3 pts made.

He won 2 titles with Houston, 3 with LAL, and presumably at least 1 more with the Spurs.

6 titles and no love for Big shot bob?

Without his 21 points and 7 rebounds last night on top of his 5-6 from 3 pts and the game winner, is there any doubt that Mo town would be in control here? How dominating does he need to be in the playoffs and the finals for him to win consideration for the Hall?

He is at least as good as many of the Celtic players who got in.

finished with 21 points and seven boards while hitting 5-of-6 threes to win the game for the Spurs in overtime. They don't call him "Big Shot Bob" for nothin'. His wide open three with 5.8 seconds left in OT capped off a five-point run for Horry and ended the game in a one-point win for the Spurs. 18 of his 21 points tied the game or gave the Spurs the lead and included an amazing dunk as he came ''flying'' through the lane. The Pistons haven't won in San Antonio since 1997, putting the Spurs clearly in the driver's seat.
clearly a weak player - able to dominate the finals game - to alter the destiny of a series - clearly not belonging in the HOF cough cough

Is Reggie Miller a lock for the HOF?

He's had a nice career. He's hit some big time shots at the end of some high profile playoff games, but hall of fame? You have got to be kidding.
