Johnson doesn't belong in a NBA hall of fame but there isn't one. IMO he belongs in a basketball hall of fame.
Most others disagree. He had a very nice college career, but that alone generally isn't good enough. Of the things that get you into the basketball HOF, Bosh has them and LJ doesn't.
Hence why BR HOF predictor has Bosh at 61st all-time with a 90% chance at getting in, but Larry Johnson at 205 with a 5% chance.
But that's all besides the point, because the two aren't even comparable since their cases are different. Why would Johnson's exclusion preclude Bosh's?
I just thought who is a player that was probably around Chris Bosh's level and Larry Johnson came to mind...
And you may be right, but their cases for HOF status are not exactly similar.
