Ok, well this topic is kind of like a thread/game but at the same time serious topic for us sports fans! 
 
So I hope it does well and enjoy! 
 
The rules are simple: 
 
-User above lists a player from ANY and ALL sports, that's right ANY SPORT Baseball, Football, Soccer, Boxing, Hockey, Basketball, Golf, Tennis, Bowling whatever.... posts a name of any player you THINK is good enough or perhaps good enough to be HOF calibur and the user who responds says Yes or No, then post one of their own 
 
-Feel free to post their stats and photos if you wish but not necessary, and please post which sport they player is from this is a must to make things easier.
 
-Be nice, cool and try not to  hate too much on an athlete, we all know there's the popular ones, and hated ones but can still be good players regardless 
 
-Have fun! 
 
I'll start: 
 
Baseball: 
 
Mariano Rivera/New York Yankees:

Definitely. 
 
Reggie Miller-basketball-Indiana Pacers 
 
  • Miller retired as the all-time NBA leader in total 3-point field goals made (2,560) (broken February 10, 2011 by Ray Allen of the Boston Celtics).
  • Miller led the league twice in three-point field goals made ( 1992-93, 1996-97). He led the league in free throw percentage five times, including his last season.
  • Miller made a three-pointer in 68 consecutive games from November 15, 1996 to April 6, 1997.
  • Miller led the league in free throw percentage five times (1990–91, 1998–99, 2000–01, 2001–02, 2004–05)
  • Miller is one of only five members in the 50-40-90 Club of players who shot 50% or better from the field, 40% or better from three-point range, and 90% or better from the free throw line in a single season while also achieving the NBA league minimum number of makes in each category. Larry Bird, Mark Price, Steve Nash, and Dirk Nowitzki are the only other players to achieve this feat.

    Henrik lundqvist 
     
    not sure... Henrik's numbers are Pretty Good... but he is going to need a few good runs in the Playoffs to really solidify himself as well as a few 40 win seasons.  
     
    Hockey : Nicholas Lidstrom 
    #38 Posted by MKF30 (11635 posts) - - Show Bio

    Maybe....kind of leaning yes 
     
    I do think Henrik will get in or should, problem is he hasn't been on "excellent" teams but decent ones...still, HOF isn't judged by playoffs or rings, but individual stats and how good you are at that position. You can be a HOF catcher, goalie, pitcher, hitter, kicker, QB, guard etc, etc but play for a crappy or mediocre team....
