Former Piston Dennis Rodman was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame on Friday. Many consider this a "win" for role players and guys with resumes that wouldn't make them automatic for the Hall.

Another ex-Piston may fit into that category. The 2004 NBA Finals MVP Chauncey Billups, who got a community service award from the Hall of Fame last week, could be an interesting candidate when its time to vote.

Yahoo!Sports' Marc Spears delved into this subject recently. He spoke with Hall of Fame president and CEO John L. Doleva, who doesn't think Billups makes a compelling case for enshrinement.

"The body of work is very important," Doleva said. "To think that the voters just look at a single portion of a career would be false. They do step back and take a hard look. It's not a popularity contest, the hottest name. It's a thoughtful process. It's the entire game.

"Even community work helps a candidacy. I'm not in the prediction business, but I think Chauncey would be a solid nominee."

Now, you may still be thinking, "Billups was a good player, but Hall of Fame?" Well, consider this: he's fifth all-time in three-pointers made and is the fifth-most accurate free-throw shooter in NBA history at 89.4%.
