Peak first and foremost. If you were never considered great, or one of the best players in the league, or best at you're position than I think its a no go right from the start.
Like Hiesenberg said before, the only guys like that that are going to be in the discussion are players that played for a really long time, and have nice totals simply because they played a lot of games.
So first I'd put the numbers that they put up in their best 5-7 years.
Next I'd say career rate statistics because again they eliminate the problem with totals being skewed by games played.
After that I'd go to career totals because you still have to have done it for some length of time.
At the bottom would be any type of awards or feats or records. All of that stuff is derivative of the numbers, and in some cases decided by voting, so it's secondary to the statistics.
