It’s the official announcement and the revealing of the Class of 2020 for the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. NBA games may be on hold, but its history will still be celebrated. This is normally done during the Final 4. However, due to Coronavirus they are revealing and announcing it on ESPN.
It should surprise no one to hear that the three legends that retired in 2016, Kobe Bryant, Tim Duncan and Kevin Garnett are receiving this honor. The trio combined have won 11 NBA championships and four MVP awards across their decorated careers.
Garnett has spent his post-playing career working in media while Duncan is currently an assistant coach for the only team he ever played for, the Spurs, Bryant died in a helicopter accident in January, but will be inducted posthumously.
The announcement will be held Saturday April 4th at 11:00 AM EST on ESPN. The induction is supposed to take place in August but that is subject to change
