To be included, a player must have played at least 10 seasons in the NBA and be eligible for the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame (i.e., retired prior to the 2009-10 season).
The Slope is the slope of the cutoff line and determines how much weight to assign to each axis. For example, a slope of 0 means the y-axis will receive all of the weight, a slope of 45 means each axis will receive equal weight, and a slope of 90 means the x-axis will receive all of the weight.
The No. of Players is the number of players you want in the Hall of Fame and determines where the cutoff line will be drawn.
The Min. Debut Year is the first debut year for eligible players you want to consider (minimum is 1947, i.e., players who debuted in the 1946-47 season).
The Max. Debut Year is the last debut year for eligible players you want to consider (maximum is 2002, i.e., players who debuted in the 2001-02 season).
