    I don't understand why Michael Jordan is not in the Hall of Fame yet....

    Any basketball fan here who can explain?

    He's not? That's weird, I could've sworn he was. Well, really it's only a matter of time. Perhaps they still expect him to return

    He'll be eligible for the first time this year. According to the NAISMITH website, you have to be fully retired for five years before you're eligible.

    Or knowing him, he may not have filed his retirement papers yet

My money is on Gretzsky, no one has ever stood so head and shoulders above their peers as he has. If you take all the goals he's scored out of his lifetime points total, he's still got more points than the next highest scorer, just on assists, and that's just one of his 62 NHL records. When he retired, every team in the league retired his number. Incredible.

    It's true that I'm a heathen though.

    He'll get in no problem. (Still feels as though he retired more than 5 yrs ago. I figured it had to be close to 5.)

    Gee, and I thought it was due to his time trying to play professional baseball.

    If Stockton makes it then he's a shoe in, no doubt.
