Are Manu and Tony Hall of Fame worthy?

23

Manu gets the unanimous nod because besides his NBA success, he was able to lead Argentina to an Olympic gold medal and an MVP at that. Parker might need more work, but it should be remembered that he was the Finals MVP in 2007 when the Spurs swept the Cleveland Cavaliers and is arguably the best international player that came out from France.
