Kobe Bryant Headlines Star-Studded Hall of Fame Class


Kobe Bryant, Tim Duncan, and Kevin Garnett lead a stacked 2020 Hall of Fame class that was announced this afternoon on April 4.

Bryant, Duncan, and Garnett were all in their first year of eligibility for the Hall of Fame and its no surprise that all three of them made it on the first attempt.

Kobe Bryant was an 18-time NBA All-Star, a five-time NBA Champion, and the 2007-2008 MVP. He spent the entirety of his career as a member of the Los Angeles Lakers. Unfortunately, he won’t be able to give his Hall of Fame speech, as he tragically passed away in a helicopter crash in January.

Duncan was a 15-time all-star, a five-time NBA Champion, and a two-time MVP. He played for the Spurs his entire career and now serves as an assistant coach for them behind Greg Popovich.

Garnett was a 15-time all-star, a one-time NBA Champion with the Boston Celtics, and the 2003-2004 MVP. He spent the majority of his career in Minnesota and Boston followed by a two-year stint in Brooklyn. Garnett now does work for TNT as an analyst and appeared in the feature film Uncut Gems in 2019.


The three former MVPs are joined in the Hall of Fame by 10-time WNBA All-Star Tamika Catchings of the Indiana Fever, five-time NBA All-Star and two-time NBA Champion Coach Rudy Tomjanovich of the Houston Rockets, three-time NCAA Women’s Basketball Champion Coach Kim Mulkey of Baylor, Bentley University coach Barbara Stevens, one of five women’s coaches with over 1,000 wins, and former Kentucky, Arkansas, Oklahoma State, and Creighton’s head coach Eddie Sutton.

The eight finalists will all be inducted into the Hall of Fame on Aug. 29 in Springfield, Mass.
