The NBA is a star-driven league. Their life, stories, and faces are used by the league to sell its brand -- and it works. In return, the players make millions and enjoy the stardom that comes with being in the league. Of course, there is also the Hall-of-Fame.
The HoF is a way the NBA honors the best of the best.
Becoming a part of the NBA Hall of Fame is an honor not every player gets the chance to experience. In fact, the title is left for only the best, most impactful stars.
This year's class includes a particularly impressive group.
The eligible names are Tim Duncan, Kevin Garnett, Kobe Bryant, Elton Brand, Chris Bosh, Andre Miller, Amar'e Stoudemire, Tayshaun Prince, Kevin Martin, and Kirk Hinrich.
Kobe, Duncan, KG, Chris Bosh, and Amar'e Stoudemire are all locks to make it in this year. They changed the status of their teams and were the faces of the league for a number of years before Father-time took its tool.
The rest of the names are arguable entires, but they have a good chance to make it, nonetheless.
They will join Vlade Divac, Bobby Jones, Sidney Moncrief, and Chuck Cooper.
