    8. arinsa

    9. Karsten Reed

    12. Mate Petrovic

      Bravo Toni

    13. Djenan Saric

      It’s a shame that Toni just got into Hall of Fame, after so many players went before him who didn’t even deserve it! Congratulations Toni! Well earned! True character, personality, talent, and well respected person all over the world, especially in former ex-Yugoslavian countries! Cestitke legendo !!!

    14. Atrain973 main4life386

      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.

    15. Fun with the Coopers

      This guy played thru adversities the era didn't believe in euro players can play in the nba and the era that wasn't made for euro players if he plays in today's era imo he will be an All-star easily

    16. Keep Tahoe Blue

      How is Kukoc in the hall of fame but not Robert Horry?! The hall of fame has become a joke now they even have Tracy Mcgrady and Ralph Sampson in it

    17. Roy Daniel

      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…

    18. Mel D

      Tmac got it b4 this Guy smh

    19. M A K O

      Jordan with his gloves 🧤 hands . Biggest hands but smallest feet - quick - such a. Freak combo th at made him the greatest

    20. M A K O

      Happy for toni to get this- he deserved it. He was overshadowed at the bulls but he was the greatest European player into Europe and refined the point forward. He d have flourished in today’s game . The bulls don’t threepear without a hall of fame off the bench .

    21. 1Blkkato

      this bum gets in but not gus williams, purvis short, water davis, bill laimbeer, sugar ray richardson!!!!!

    22. Treadstone Borne

      Greatness revolves around greatness…

    23. Stephen Gomes

      NBA Hall OF fame is water down, Come on Now Toni Kukoc in the Hall? I'm sorry he was a good player coming off the bench. I just don't understand it. Hall Of Fame in The NBA does not match up to MLB and NFL Hall of Fame.

    24. JeepGrand19

      Good man rt there.

    25. Alfredo Oliva

      Toni Kukoc, Hall of Fame really? Will Perdue is next i suppose...

    26. Tony Frias

      Luc longley tony kukoc Steve Kerr 🏀🏀🏀 true underrated súper stars🏀🏀🏀

    27. Tony Frias

      Tony kukoc is a clay Thompson 💯💯💯

    28. Tony Frias

      Kukoc true champ 🏀🏀🏀🏀🏀

    29. Dejan Triv

      You finally did it, Tony “Pink Panther” - Thank you !

    30. Dale Harapat

      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...

    31. Donald Stubbs

      Congrats to Toni kukoc

    32. Bruno Vucko

      Croatia, second after USA with most HOF all time with 4 milion People ✌️

    33. TheLastWalenta

      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.

    34. Tee Rexx

      I don’t see Scottie

    35. Ohh! You touch my Tralalà! Mhh! My Ding Ding Dong

      Benetton Treviso ♥️


      He failed to mention probably the most important club of his career (that is not Chicago Bulls) - Jugoplastika (split, pop84) - why?

    37. Jonas Ferguson

      Rip ivkovic

    38. Giovanni Loresto

      Congrats..nice to see MJ again, with Kukoc

    39. Lucy Plays

      Nije mu bilo lako prvih godina u bullsima, brijem da su urlali na njega Phil,Michael,Scottie.Bogami si konobaru zasluzio uci u najvecu kosarkasku elitu.Lipi pozdrav iz nasega Splita.

    40. Christian Soldier

      what a weak class I guess thats why webber was finally inducted

    41. Daidoji Uji

      Just pure class.

    42. zyl zyl

      who can ask for more ?!, Toni married his HS sweet hart, has a solid family foundation, i mean , not even MJ with all his money can say im still married to my first and only wife .... just beautiful , the difference of cultures cant be more apparent ..

    43. Fadda Lp

      His career stats not hall of fame worthy , he better kiss Jordan's feet

    44. You Tuber

      i got nothing at all against kukoc but he shouldn't be in the hall of fame

    45. BLKTRD08

      for me his biggest accomplishment is having his wife along his side since high school. That stuff right there is hard to find and maintain.

    46. J Taylor

      Hall of fame getting watered down this guy could not guard a fly

    47. JB Jopa

      Toni je živa legenda, toliko mi je drago vidjeti ga konačno u Basketball Hall of Fame nije nitko više zaslužio nego on. Slušam ga i oči su mi pune suza... Hvala Toni za sve ❤️🏀🇭🇷

    48. blyeone

      Does everyone make the basketball HOF

    49. Michelangelo's Pizzeria

      This guy despite all the struggles in his home country managed to be always at the right spot at the right time! Everything he touched went gold! Everywhere he played, he won! 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! Congratulations from Greece!

    50. Ilija Mrkonjic

      Svaka cast Toni , pravi Covik pravi Dalmatinac,S ponosom mom Sinu pokazivam kako covijek moze puno uspjet s puno postenog rada !! Na ponos nase Domovine Dalmacije i naseg Splita!!

    56. Angel Alaniz

      Hvala puno Toni well deserved 👏 And thank you for so many great plays with the bulls

    57. VLVentureWorx 1

      Have the bulls not been corporately dissolved Tony Kukoc could have lead and had Jordan play limited minutes for the next 5 years to championships

    58. VLVentureWorx 1

      This Man was " Ice Watet!"

    59. Alexandros Simitzis

      Congratulations Toni! You earned this! You were one of my favorite players when I was growing up! God bless you and your beautiful family dear Toni! 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!

    60. Joe Sanchez

      I don't even recognize him fuck he got old real quick

    61. Posey James

      HOF? 11.6 career ppg? Naaahhh.

    62. krlm2280

      A great hooper one of the few euro to nba og's congrats

    63. Think Civil

      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.

    64. Piotr Stachowiak

      My favorite player from Bulls. In todays NBA he will be The biggest star. Incredible shooter and his assist were insane. Love for Toni from Poland.

    65. Jason Williams

      It was nice to see MJ up there supporting Tony

    66. Uncle Mac76

      They put him in the hall of fame???

    67. Nikola Ljumovic


    68. Anton Beric

      He deserves all. My favorite Player!

    69. Bartosz Grzegorzyca

      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.

    70. Jason Heilman - Musical Remedies

      Much Deserved. He was major in leading the way for euro players in the NBA

    71. Joyce F

      Such a class act. Congrats Toni!

    72. Tank Davis

      NBA Hall of fame is a joke, how the hell tony get in. Really

    73. Marcus

      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.

    74. Александр Шкурин

      Спасибо за баскетбольное чудо из Хорватии.

    75. Paweł Gr

      Great speech, great player! Respect from Poland.

    76. infoguy1978

      Toni wasnt a hall of famer

    77. Greg Greg

      love and congratulations from germany. one of my favorite players in the 90s. i will never sell my kukoc jersey.

    78. Ivana Lesic

      Croatia❤🇭🇷The most international basketballs players in hall of fame are from Croatia!

    79. Fabio Nave

      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.

    80. Demetrius Johnson

      Really what was he ever ranked #1 in ? Only had 3,000 pts 1,000 asst third option on the bulls gtfoh hall of fame lmao

    81. Hristijan Kirovski

      Ziva Legenda!!! Svaka ti Cast!!!!
