Stephen A. Smith did not hold back his thoughts on why he believes the 2020 Hall of Fame class is the greatest in the history of the league.

Headlined by legends like Kobe Bryant, Tim Duncan, Kevin Garnett and Tamika Catchings, the class of 2020 was a special one.

Joining the iconic basketball players were Eddie Sutton, Rudy Tomjanovich, Kim Mulkey, Barbara Stevens and Patrick Baumann.

“We’ve got Kobe Bryant here – 18 All-Star appearances, 11 1st team All-NBA spots and 5 championships. We have Tim Duncan – 5 championships, 15 All-Star appearances and 10 1st team All-NBA nominations.

We’ve got Kevin Garnett – an NBA title, 15 All-Star appearances and 4 1st team All-NBA. Ladies and gentlemen, think about that. That’s 11 championships.

Again, you’ve got 48 All-Star appearances, alright. When you talk about the first team, that’s 25 1st team appearances as well,” Smith said on First Take recently.
