    My respects for Tony from Argentina. Se still remember that fabulous Team that won the 1990 World Championship that took place in our country. It was a real european Dream Team with Tony, Drazen Petrovic, Divac, Radja and many others. They kicked the butt to all the others teams and in the Final Game, they beat the USA Team with Alonso Mourning, Kenny Anderson, Cristian Laettner... Tony was the MVP of the tournament.

    Toni Kukoč, for me, is the best Croatian basketball player of all time. Yes, Dražen is a legend, but Toni could play any position in a team and be the best player on the court while scoring only 2-3 points. That's how good and versatile he was, that's another level. Not to mention that he was 3X consecutive European champions cup winner with Jugoplastika and 3X consecutive NBA champion with the Bulls-two of the best teams in Europe and World of all time.

    Congrats to Toni. Well deserved. I loved watching him play. I was there at the old Chicago Stadium (RIP) when he hit the game-winner against the Knicks in the 1994 playoffs. What a game! As a Bulls fan nearing 50 years old, I'm so thankful and lucky that I got to see all 6 championships. It was an amazing time to be a Bulls fan.

    If Tony Kokuc plays today, he will be a similar Kevin Durant spotlight, of course he is better than Luka Doncic.

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.

    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…

    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.

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!

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.
