When it comes to some of the players (including Boston Celtics) who have made it into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield, Massachusetts, there has been no shortage of folks who believe that some of those so honored snuck into the Hoops Hall without the proper merits to be included among such lofty peers.
And others may not be aware of the fact that it is the basketball Hall of Fame, meaning that achievements overseas, in college, or in Olympic and FIBA play helped some of those players make it into the Hall. But for others, the fact that the NBA is the flagship league of the sport means you ought to have won at least one NBA title to have made it into the Springfield institution.
We can count former Celtics Hall of Famers Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce among them, as they professed in a recent video documenting a visit by them to that hallowed ground.
Take a look at the clip embedded above to hear their arguments in favor of such a position.
