Poll: Which Lakers guards deserve to be in a Lakers Hall of Fame?

February 25, 2011 |  8:30 am

If the Lakers had their own Hall of Fame, which players would you select for induction? That is the basis for our next series of polls, in which we ask our readers to vote on who is most worthy of this honor. We will break down the history of the team by position, nominating those who spent at least three seasons with the team as a starter and played well in their tenure with the Lakers.

Only consider what they did with the Lakers. So, don't be upset that Karl Malone isn't a nominee: Obviously, Malone is a Hall of Famer, but he was only on the Lakers one season and would not be a Lakers Hall of Famer.

We start with the guards. To make the Hall of Fame, players must be named on 75% of the ballots. Before the ballot, there are links to each player's bio and stats on our new All Things Lakers database.

The nominees at guard:

Lucius Allen
Kobe Bryant
Michael Cooper
Arnold Ferrin
Derek Fisher
Gail Goodrich
Bob Harrison
Rod Hundley
Tony Jaros
Magic Johnson
Eddie Jones
Slick Leonard
Slater Martin
Norm Nixon
Anthony Peeler
Pat Riley
Pep Saul
Byron Scott
Frank Selvy
Brian Shaw
Sedale Threatt
Nick Van Exel
Jerry West
