In the past year, Chicago sports figures have been well represented in their respective Hall of Fame classes.

The 2014 Baseball Hall of Fame class included White Sox slugger Frank Thomas, former manager Tony La Russa and longtime Cubs pitcher Greg Maddux. Chicago native and former Blackhawks defenseman Chris Chelios was inducted into the 2013 Hockey Hall of Fame.

The Bears were shutout in the 2014 Pro Football Hall of Fame class, but Tuesday's SportsTalk Live panel all agreed that it won't be long before linebacker Brian Urlacher gets the call.

It may be awhile before another Blackhawks player enters the Hockey Hall of Fame, but the team has several future candidates in forwards Marian Hossa, Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane, defenseman Duncan Keith and head coach Joel Quenneville.

When it comes to the Bulls, CSN's David Kaplan brought up an interesting name.

"What about Jerry Krause?" Kaplan said. "Jerry won six titles and built two different versions of a championship team. I know Jerry wasn't the most popular guy at times, but you can't dispute what he did."
