Top 15 NBA Players Who Are Overdue For A Hall Of Fame Induction

With the recent inductions of NBA legends Shaquille O'Neal, Allen Iverson, and Yao Ming to the NBA Hall of Fame, I thought it would be a good time to look at some of the great basketball names who have not been awarded this prestigious title. When looking back at some of the great names to not be inducted into the Hall of Fame, I was surprised at some of the amazing talent that will not go down in the history books as some of the best players ever.

In this article, we will be looking at the top 15 greatest NBA players to not make the hall of fame. We obviously will not be including players such as LeBron James or Kobe Bryant, as even though they are not in the Hall of Fame just yet, they will undoubtedly be added to the list once they're eligible. While the Hall of Fame is a one of the best honors an NBA player can get, these guys on this list had amazing NBA careers nonetheless.

Here are the top 15 NBA players to not make the Hall of Fame. As always, feel free to suggest any others that you believe belong on this list.

Sidney Moncrief was drafted with the 5th pick in the 1979 NBA Draft by the Milwaukee Bucks. However, Moncrief needed a few seasons to develop before he did any real damage in the NBA. Once he hit his prime, Moncrief became one of the best players in the league. He racked up a ton of awards during his career with the Bucks, as he was a five-time All-Star and a two-time Defensive Player of the Year award winner. Moncrief will not just go down as one of the greatest Milwaukee Bucks of all-time, but one of the greatest players in all of the NBA's great history. Sidney Moncrief had an excellent NBA career, and is the best player to not be inducted into the Hall of Fame.
