    He absolutely deserves it, but I don't know. He's been criminally underrated for far too long for me to have faith in the voters to get him in.

    Haven't seen it discussed? I just started the discussion a few hours ago in the Everything Kyle Lowry thread.
    But hey, I'm down with this.
    (I know it's been talked about here prior to our ... ahem, CHAMPIONSHIP... (trying that on, still feels good to say, to type, to scream...)

    I think Kyle gets in. For all the reasons Keon mentioned, for one thing.

    It's interesting that Chauncey hasn't gotten in, and if he doesn't that's not a positive barometer. However, Kyle's situation is somewhat different. As Dwane Casey so thoughtfully and generously put it, Detroit has a decorated history, where we do not. ... Was Chauncey the best point guard in the history of the Pistons? Obviously not.

    Kyle is not only the greatest point guard we've ever had (apologies Damon), Kyle is the all time greatest Raptor (I mean, besides Kawhi being an obvious immediate legend.) Kyle is the longest tenured Raptor (now) and holds many of our records and helped deliver the first CHAMPIONSHIP outside of the USA. Yao Ming made it in to the Hall mostly on his international influence and bringing the game to a new global stage. That's a different situation, sure, but hopefully Lowry has a good few years ahead (brings us another CHAMPIONSHIP or two...) ok, ok, don't wanna get ahead of myself here...

    May he remain healthy with his conditioning regimen and play several wonderful seasons to come.

    I think things are very promising that Lowry could make it in for those combination of reasons.

    Basketball-ref has a hall of fame predictor tool. I think it has Lowry at about 65% chance to get in at this point.

    Ah, yep, found it.

    with the NBA champonship he pretty much has the same career as chancey billups now. the man he was always compared to and his mentor. That will be the goal post to watch. If billups makes its lowry will to. Unless we win another one then he's a lock.

    Yeah I think he should be. He’ll age well, kind of as the Westbrook antithesis, could easily see him being the 3/4th guy on a good playoff team for a while longer if things pan out. Dont know who judges Hall of Fame qualifications but the continuous absurd advanced stats should play a role too.

    Add in an NBA Championship, and that list narrows even further.
    Keon and Joey tag teaming sanyo. Time for a cage match.

    I dunno, 2 or 3 more good years he should finish with:

    15000 pts
    7000 assists
    5x all star

    theres only 12 players who have done that, and they're all in the hall of fame or will be

    Damn Keon, your fingerprints are all over the Republics playoff coverage. And spewing common sense wherever you go. You got game.

    If he continues his effectiveness and impact on the game for a few more years, and the Raptors win another Gold Ball next year, guaranteed.
