The comparisons you used aren't even close, but Vince quitting was 10 years + so it's understandable how that memory might be a bit foggy.

If Vince could somehow play an important part as a veteran and win a championship, I think his numbers will be good enough to make the HOF. He needs a final chapter to his story to make the HOF in my opinion - not quite there.

VC has no heart for winning. Even watching the old games of 2000/01, he looks like a player looking for his own.

Yes, he had the talent. But never the drive or mindset of a HOF player.

Lets stop all this revisionist thinking. The guy quit on all of us and his team. That is unforgivable.
All 3 of these posts pretty much sum up my feelings on the matter.

Let BKN retire your number VC.
