The Hall Of Fame is the ultimate goal for any athlete. Many can have great careers but still not make it on the first try, but they eventually do. This is not for one sport in particular, but here are a few I feel will be first ballot Hall Of Famers!
After winning his second championship in Toronto, this guy is now a lock in for the Hall. Multiple DPOY awards, 2 Finals MVPs, 3 Finals appearances and not to mention he’s only 28! This guy will probably win at least 2 more rings in his career and at least 1 more Finals MVP.
Hate me all you want, this guy is the greatest NBA Player of all time! Above Jordan, Kobe, Abdul-Jabbar and anyone! While he may not have had as many accomplishments as the previous mentioned. His skill level is something we’ve never seen before. When he retires, we will be talking about him the same way we spoke about the other greats, but with higher esteem.
He will go down as the greatest 3 point shooter in NBA history by the time he retires by a long shot! He’s only 31 and he’s already number 3 after Reggie Miller and Ray Allen!
While love for him as a person has declined significantly, his play and accomplishments have been incredible. While his championships will be tainted on joining the warriors, his time in OKC will shine out, who knows what he will accomplish in Brooklyn!
3 seasons averaging a triple double…until him there was only 1 person with 1 season! Most triple doubles in a season (A recorded thought of as unbreakable!), MVP and 2 All Star Game MVPs. This guy is just missing a championship ring!
GOAT, that’s all I will say.
Number 2 on all-time receiving yards, number 6 on receiving touchdowns, 8 1,000 receiving yards seasons and even more! A Superbowl ring is the only thing he wasn’t able to get in his illustrious career.
Frankly, only Tom Brady is a better quarterback! Also, NFL career leader in passing yards!
Do I really need to mention? Greatest player of his generation, greatest captain of his generation. Always lock for MVP and makes everyone around him better.
Again, do I really need to mention? Second greatest player of his generation. Greatest goal scorer of his generation. Always a lock for MVP and 8 time Rocket Richard (Most goals of the season trophy) winner!
This guy swept the NHL Awards with every elidable award a Goalie could get, not to mention he had a grand slam on the stats. He’s also has almost every significant goalie record for the Montreal Canadiens who have had the best Goalies in the history of the game! Only a Stanley Cup ring is missing from his trophy case.
The Steve Yzerman of his generation. A great leader with high level skill, Conn Smyth winner and a 3 time cup winner. He’ll go down as one of the greatest captains in the history of the game!
He will go down as the greatest American player in the history of the game, first to win the Art Ross and the Hart. Not to mention like Toews, a 3 time champion.
Norris winner, 2 cups, Olympic Gold and multiple All Star games. I’m certain he’ll get another Norris before he retires!
2 Cy Young Awards, in the 3000 strikeout club (Almost automatic Hall of Fame accomplishment), World Seriew Champion, MVP, ALCS MVP and still going strong!
World Series Champion, 2 times MVP, and the frist Triple Crown in 45 years (No big deal!)
3 times MVP, 2 times World Series Champion, Rookie Of The Year, NLCS MVP, one of only 9 players with 600 Home Runs, in the 3000 hit club (Another almost automatic Hall of Fame accomplishment)
