Kobe Bryant, Tim Duncan, Kevin Garnett headline 2020 Hall of Fame class


The Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame class of 2020 will go down as the greatest inductee of All-Time. A class headline by Kobe Bryant (Lakers), Tim Duncan (Spurs) and Kevin Garnett (T-Wolves, Celtics, & Nets) were all selected Saturday for enshrinement and will be inducted Aug. 29 in Springfield, Massachusetts.

Together, the trio has combined for 48 All-Star appearances, 39 All-NBA selections, 11 NBA title and four league MVP honors. In an interview via ESPN, Bryant’s wife, Vanessa Bryant, said his election to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame is the “peak of his NBA career.”

Joining Bryant, Duncan and Garnett into the Hall will be 10-time All-Star and WNBA champion, Tamika Catchings of the Indiana Fever. Five-time NBA All-Star and two-time NBA champion as a head coach, Rudy Tomjanovich of the Houston Rockets. Three-time Women’s NCAA champion, coach Kim Mulkey of Baylor. And five-time Division II coach of the year Barbara Stevens of Bentley University; four-time NCAA coach of the year Eddie Sutton.
