    No.

    This is as much of a non-debate as the Iverson one.

    Go back to Jersey Shore.

    No, he does not belong in the HOF.

    One of the great moments on the Internet was when some guy, I think it was for Salon, did a stat-based column on how overrated the Big Shot Bob thing is because his shooting percentage isn't any better than anybody else's, and how it's just dumb luck that he has ended up with so many highlight-reel moments.

    The night after the column, he hit a three-pointer for the Spurs to beat the Pistons.

    But no, not even close to HOF.

    Maybe a darkhorse College HOF guy, but still a stretch.

    He's a Hall of Fame prick, that's for sure.

    Jesus H. Christ. These HOF threads are really ridiculous sometimes.

    I love them... If there's actually a debate.

    Hell, Horry wasn't even a starter for about half his career. I'd be curious if he was ever even the second-best player on any of the teams he was on.

    I'd be surprised if he was ever an all-star.

    On basketballreference, Horry's most similar players career-wise were Joe Smith, Eddie Johnson (the non-druggie version), Juwan Howard, Kurt Thomas, Clarence Witherspoon, Armen Gilliam, Antonio Davis, Dave DeBusschere, Antonio McDyess and Maurice Lucas.

    Send him to Springfield!
