DWYANE WADE

Wade extended his excellence beyond what most scouts when he entered the league as the No.5 pick out of Marquette in year of 2003 after Carmelo Anthony, Chris Bosh and LeBron James.

His career had at least two different chapters. He was the dynamo who sparked Miami to 2006 NBA championship, a 24 year old Finals MVP supported by the legend Shaquille O'Neal. That version of Wade was constant danger. Later Wade morphed into willingly complementary star along side James and Bosh form The Miami's "Big Three". The team and group went four Finals from 2011 until 2014 winning rings in the 2012 and 2013, ganging up for most fans either loved or hated.

Dwyane Wade is now 40 lasted 16 years with late career cameos with Cleveland and Chicago before finishing back in Miami. The Chicago native was 13-time All Star and eight All-NBA selection.

PAU GASOL

Another International star on 2023 ballot, the important factor for a Hall of Fame captures around the glove and NBA standouts. The 7 foot product of Barcelona Spain was third player picked in 2001 draft. In the Memphis Grizzlies’ flag in their new market after relocating from Vancouver, was that year’s Rookie of the Year and became an All-Star in 2006.

He was trade to Los Angeles Lakers that kicked his career to another level in year 2008. He scored 20,894 points and grabbed 11,305 rebounds in his career.

TONY PARKER

Tony Parker poised now to complete the Spurs' trinity, presuming that he'll join Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili in the Hall. That Big three playing and set records for achievement playing longer and more successful than any Big three in the NBA History.

Now 40, Parker made six All-Star teams and four All-NBA squads. He averaged 15.5 points and 5.6 assists, enough to rank 56th and 19th respectively on the NBA all-time lists.

DIRK NOWITZKI

Greatest International player in NBA History. He's now 44 the 7 footer from Germany is an All star player for 14 times and All-NBA pick 12 times and the league’s Most Valuable Player in 2007 when he led Dallas to a 67-15 record. His crowning achievement came in 2011 when he carried a good-but-not-great roster of role players to the NBA title over a heavily favored Miami Heat team and earned the Finals MVP award.

Nowitzki’s remarkable shooting skills– his iconic one-legged jumper will soon be commemorated in statue form outside the Mavericks’ arena – helped establish a new weapon for the game’s big men.

And like peers such as Bryant and Duncan, Nowitzki spent his entire 21-year career with one franchise.
