Ray Allen for Hall of Fame

Had a friendly discussion with my best friend RonB about the possibility of Ray Allen making the Hall of Fame. My choice is that he is a lock. RonB feels he has to win something. Winning was not done a whole lot in those years with Milwaukee and Seattle.

So for comparison sakes here are the stats.

Reggie Miller will be used as a comparison.

Reggie played for 18 seasons
averaged 18.2 points
scored 25,279 regular season points.
(please note Reggie’s last 3 seasons were subpar at 12.3, 10.0, and 14.8)

Ray Allen has played 13 years (-5 to Reggie)
averaged 21.1 points (+2.9 to Reggie)
scored 18,227 regular season points (-7,052 to Reggie in 5 less years)

Ray scored 1,273 points this past year (down for him). 1,273 X 5 years = 6,365. Putting him very close to Reggie Miller.

Let’s compare that to the player known as the next Reggie Miller, Rip Hamilton.

Rip Hamilton has played 9 years (-9 to Reggie)
averaged 17.9 points (-.3 to Reggie)
scored 12,059 regular season points (-13,220)

Rip scored 1,244 points this past year (down for him). 1,244 X 9 = 11,196. Putting him a few thousand from Reggie Miller.

Reggie Miller is 13th on the NBA All Time scoring list with his 25K points. For comparison purposes Kobe Bryant is 24th with 21,619, AI is 20th with 22.9K, and Shaq is 11th with 26K+. They are still active players on the list.

Ray Allen will move into the top 30 in the next two years with his current pace.
(NBA special note: Kevin Garnett will be in the top 30 early next year!)

The Top 30 NBA scoring list reads like a who’s who of the Hall of Fame.

As always, any NBA Basketball related comments are welcome.
