Los Angeles Lakers legend Magic Johnson spoke on the announcement that Kobe Bryant will be inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame. Johnson was upset that the five-time NBA champion will not be there at the ceremony to receive the award and give a great speech.

The other two NBA greats that will be inducted are San Antonio Spurs legend and five-time champion Tim Duncan and Kevin Garnett, who won the championship with the Boston Celtics.
