Those six players are  Kobe Byrant, Tim Duncan, LeBron James, Kevin Garnett, Dwyane Wade, and Dirk Nowitzki.

The criteria however to be voted into the Hall of Fame is short and sweet and mentions none of those things.

This list seems to leave off a few other players who could easily fall in the same category of accomplishments in one way or another with the players listed above, even if not as many.
