This is a list of ten active NBA players who, in my opinion, are already locks for the Basketball Hall of Fame. Meaning that if any one of these players never plays another NBA game, he would still get voted into the Basketball Hall of Fame.
Each one of these players has already done more than enough in their careers to have earned the honor of being enshrined in the Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield, Massachusetts. I say that because, based upon what each player has already accomplished, there are no other similar players who are not already in the Basketball Hall of Fame.
How players get elected to Basketball Hall of Fame
To be elected to the Basketball Hall of Fame, players must first pass a screening process that goes through four committees. The four screening committees are the North American, Women's, International, and Veteran's. The North American committee can pass up to 10 players each year, while the others can only pass two players each per year.
Once players are passed on from the four committees, their names go on to an Honors Committee, made up of 24 members. The 24 members each vote on the candidates passed through the four committees, and any player receiving 18 or more votes (75%), is elected to the Basketball Hall of Fame.
In 2011, the Basketball Hall of Fame also set up two more committees, each of which can directly elect one hall of fame member per year. The two committees are the American Basketball Association committee, and the Early African-American Pioneers of the Game committee.
