Every kid in the world should be inspired. If you can be a mediocre player, average 11 points a game for your career, and consistently shoot worse in the playoffs (aka choking), but make ONE game winner that doesn’t even result in a title, you can be in the Hall of Fame…

Lmao kid you embarrassed yourself there.. first of all no 3 peat without Kukoc. Second Kukoc broke the rookie record for game winning shots all in his rookie year.. he’s had multiple game winners and clutch performances. He averaged 13 PPG but averaged close to 16 during the bulls .. the bulls I said the greatest team ever assembled and he threw up 16.. that’s how I know you have no idea what your talking about lol

What’s really admirable about Kukoc is that he seems like an even better guy and person, than he was a bb player. And he was a truly exceptional player. Well deserved, and a great move by Michael being there. That second 3peat Bulls are still the best team ever assembled in my view.

He looks so unrecognizable from the Chicago Bulls days. If you asked me who the person on the thumbnail to this video was, I wouldn’t have guessed it was him. Underrated player and he has an awards list to fill up an entire room.

Good for him! He came into my store once about ten years ago during the off-season. He might have already been retired, I forget. But he was lit AF and had the munchies. He lived a few blocks away at the time, you see. Anyway, he was jonesing for some Nutella. I helped him try to find it, but it turned out we didn't carry it because of hydrogenated oil. He was so bummed! Totally good guy. Thanks for the good times, bud and congratulations!

Is Kukoc in the hall of fame because of his Euroleague & FIBA career? Don't get me wrong, he was a very underrated, great player in NBA, but it doesnt make sense if one of the main reasons he's in the hall of fame because of his NBA career. I cant really think of much that he accomplished in the NBA other than the sixth man of the year award. He was never an all star, all nba team or nothing. Now, if he's in because of his Euroleague & International career, then that makes much more sense because he was an 3x euroleague champion, euroleague MVP, FIBA champion, etc.
Cesar Canete
Cesar Canete Prije 4 dana
@xxxxxJAYMILLZxxxxxxx I'd figured. When I saw Kukoc being inducted into the hall of fame, I was surprised at first because he was a role player most of his NBA career, but remembered how much of an accomplished Euroleague/FIBA player he was back in the day. I think its great that the Basketball Hall of Fame are inducting non NBA greats/Euroleague legends like Kukoc on here. I wanna see Josh Childress inducted into the bball hall of fame one day. He had a great college career at Stanford & had a great euroleague career as well. I remember his jump from the NBA to the Euroleague was one of thee most viral things buzzin on ESPN & various sports new networks back then.

Mike in his own "The last dance" documentary could mention more about Toni's impact to second 3peat, apart from only showing how they locked him up in 92 olympics. Toni has great games in his playoffs career where he saved #23, #33 asses. One of the finest players Europe has ever produced.

Why the hell so late hall of fame??? At least a decade or so late.. Toni is one of the best players of his generation, both here in Europe as well in the NBA.. He was tough, i mean after all he showed on his carrer, if he hasn't his T-shirt on the rafters of the United center yet, as Bulls fan to the heart I would say what are you waiting for??

Toni's list of accomplishments is simply mind blowing, one of the best in basketball history! 🤯 Glad I was alive to witness his entire career, which was incredible! Some would dismiss his Yougoslav and European success but don't forget, all the best European players played in Europe then, Yugoslav and Euro leagues were incredible then, before everyone that is worth something went to the NBA. Congrats Toni! This should have happened long time ago.
