Congrats to all of the Class of 2019 honorees!

Now, which of them will eventually wind up in the Naismith HOF?

If they value women's basketball achievements in Springfield at all, Riley seems like a lock, albeit probably not a first-balloter. She certainly appears to have the resume: Final Four MOP, WNBA Finals MVP, NCAA Champion, 2x WNBA Champion and an Olympic Gold Medal should do it. Hell, 22 years ago, just what she did in college might have been enough.

As for Ticha, obviously I think it's a no-brainer, but I'm also obviously biased. #MFFL

I couldn't be happier as I was a huge fan of Ticha. It was that picture in SI of her in the ocean that did it for me. Shocked

Playing devil's advocate, can you justify putting Ticha on her first ballot and not have Yolanda Griffith in AT ALL?
