    It’s a shame that Toni just got into Hall of Fame, after so many players went before him who didn’t even deserve it! Congratulations Toni! Well earned! True character, personality, talent, and well respected person all over the world, especially in former ex-Yugoslavian countries! Cestitke legendo !!!

    Tony deserves to be in the Hall of Fame he is one of the best six men of all time next to Ginobili and Jamal Crawford and Robert Horry. In my opinion.

    This guy played thru adversities the era didn't believe in euro players can play in the nba and the era that wasn't made for euro players if he plays in today's era imo he will be an All-star easily

    How is Kukoc in the hall of fame but not Robert Horry?! The hall of fame has become a joke now they even have Tracy Mcgrady and Ralph Sampson in it

    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…

    Happy for toni to get this- he deserved it. He was overshadowed at the bulls but he was the greatest European player into Europe and refined the point forward. He d have flourished in today’s game . The bulls don’t threepear without a hall of fame off the bench .

    NBA Hall OF fame is water down, Come on Now Toni Kukoc in the Hall? I'm sorry he was a good player coming off the bench. I just don't understand it. Hall Of Fame in The NBA does not match up to MLB and NFL Hall of Fame.

    If a below average punk like this can get into the HOF anyone can. I therefore nominate Jeff Hornacek, Greg Ostertag and Mark Eaton....Teams that had the championship stolen from them by corrupt officials and the fake NBA. Bulls were awarded two championships from the Jazz that they did not deserve, but were delivered by David Stern and the NBA. Kukoc is a reminder of how much the NBA is like the World Wrestling Federation...

    It is absolutely not a statement that Toni Kukoc was not a good player to say that Toni Kukoc in the HOF shows that they need to do a better job of keeping players out of the Hall, rather than putting them in the Hall. No way Kukoc was a generational player. Good player - good enough that I would want him on my team in most cases. But not generational, and in no point in his career was he one of the best 5 players at his own position or the best player on a decent team. Not HOF, sorry.

    This guy despite all the struggles in his home country managed to be always at the right spot at the right time! Everything he touched went gold! Everywhere he played, he won! He was always on the right team at the right time! I really appreciate that he mentioned also Yugoslavia, Svetislav Pešić and Vlade Divac! He didn't forget where he came from. Bravo Toni Kukoč! Congratulations from Greece!

Thank you for giving me beautiful memories from my childhood and teenage years! Thank you competing against my country Greece, and against the most popular Greek basketball team back in the day Aris Salonica! Your battles against Galis, Yannakis, were awesome! And then watching you play for the Bulls was awesome! Thank you for the memories! You made me feel nostalgic of my childhood and teenage years! God bless you and your all of loved ones!

    Toni was a skinny kid when MJ and Pippin literally shut him down at the 92 Olympics and it pushed him to put on the added muscle and weight he would need to survive in the NBA. He was a pure outside shooter who was very athletic for being so tall and he accepted his lesser role on one of the most talent stacked teams in basketball history.

    On many occassions Toni carried the whole Bulls team with 25-30 points when MJ or Pip had a bad day. He singlehandedly made a Bulls comeback in game 4 against Utah Jazz in 1997. On several occasions he hit the game winners. As a white man from Europe, he earned nothing but respect from MJ himself. This induction was well overdue.

    Let's be honest now. The HOF awards is now just a way to reminisce about good players from the past. At this point, let's just add the rosters of the 90s teams. The new HOF inductees haven't lead teams to championships or have lead them to the playoffs. And if they didn't they were just talented cogs of the team but played no major part. If they were taken off the team the team would still manage if they got replaced. Toni and webber aren't elite and can't lead a team.

    as a Benetton Treviso fan I followed the "Spider from Split" throughout his whole career: an incredible game changer, in my view second only to Dražen Petrović and a little step ahead of Krešimir Ćosić and that genius of Mirza Delibašić in representing the exceptional hotbed of talent that was the Yugoslavian basketball world! Funnily enough, Toni never showed his full potential in Treviso, where he's not remembered as the best player to ever wear that green and white jersey.
