Larry Fitzgerald and Chris Bosh VS Hall of Fame

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There is no question that these two men have Hall of Fame talent. When Bosh was on Toronto he had incredible numbers and was one of the best Power Forwards in the league. Fitzgerald has had up and down seasons because he had some terrible Quarterbacks around him. When Kurt Warner was giving the reins, Fitzgerald and the Cardinals went to the Superbowl. But with Warner retiring and Bosh taking a step back in Miami, both men have had subpar seasons at best.

The question is, do both men end up in the Hall of Fame? Fitzgerald has incredible talent and is a tough man to cover, but he doesn’t have a Quarterback. Without the Quarterback, you can be the most talented man on the planet, but still not get the ball.

Bosh took a cut in pay to play with LeBron James and Dwayne Wade and has also taken a step back in performance. Bosh knew his place on Miami. He was the 3rd best player on that team and played his role perfectly to achieve 2 championships.

The criteria for Hall of Fame isn’t “how good you can be” it is “how good you were”. Playing with a career with bad Quarterbacks do hurt your stats. Bosh does have rings, but came at the expense of his numbers going hysterically down.

Both men are deserving talent wise, but I think if you have to pause and look over their careers, then it’s a no. The Hall of Fame isn’t a collection of What Ifs. They are of players that were the man on their teams. Huge fan of both men, but can’t see them making the Hall of Fame. If they do, it won’t be on a 1st ballot.
