LeBron James wonders why only retired players can enter Hall of Fame

A few days ago the list of figures who could enter the Hall of Fame in 2024. Among them is Ettore Messina, currently head coach of Olimpia Milano. The news was an opportunity to LeBron James to ask himself a question about X: Why, unlike coaches, must players have retired before they can be eligible for the Hall of Fame?

“Why do players have to have retired before they are eligible for the Hall of Fame? Coaches rightly enter it while they are still coaching. I wonder what the difference is.” James wrote.

Springfield Hall of Fame rules state that a player must not only have stopped playing, but must have done so for 4 years before being eligible. For coaches this rule does not exist, in fact last year Gregg Popovich who still coaches San Antonio was inducted.
