The 2020 Hall of Fame class is one of the best ever with Kobe Bryant, Tim Duncan and Kevin Garnett officially elected today.

For Los Angeles Lakers’ governor, Jeannie Buss, Kobe Bryant gave everything to the city of Los Angeles and the Lakers.

“No amount of words can fully describe what Kobe Bryant meant to the Los Angeles Lakers,” said Lakers Governor Jeanie Buss on the team’s official statement.

“Kobe was not only a proven winner and a champion, he gave everything he had to the game of basketball. His fierce competitiveness, work ethic and drive were unmatched. Those qualities helped Kobe lead us to five titles – and have now brought him to the Hall of Fame, where he will be enshrined with the greatest to have ever played the game. No one deserves it more.”

Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna were tragically died in a helicopter crash almost two months ago.
