Kobe Bryant

Los Angeles Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant gruesomely passed on with his daughter months ago. For his extraordinary legacy in the NBA court, Bryant will be cherished in the B-ball Hall of Fame in May 2021.

Incidentally, during this ceremony, he will be inducted into the Hall of Fame by Michael Jordan- – apparently the game’s greatest player, who sees Bryant to be his younger brother.

Bryant’s family chose Jordan to do this presentation at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Connecticut, according to a statement from the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.

The five-time NBA champion and the fourth record-breaking leading scorer in NBA history was elected into the Hall last April in his first year of qualification, only months after Bryant, his 13-year-old daughter, Gianna, and seven others were killed in the January 26 helicopter crash in Southern California.

Sincerely describing Kobe Bryant, Michael Jordan said:

“When Kobe Bryant died, a piece of me died, and as I look at this arena and across the globe, a piece of you died,” he said last February. “I promise you, from this day forward, I will live with the memories of knowing that I had a little brother that I tried to help in every way I could. Please rest in peace, little brother.”

The ceremony for Bryant and the Hall of Fame Class of 2020, which includes players like Tim Duncan, Kevin Garnett and 10-time WNBA All-Star Tamika Catchings, was postponed in light of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Michael Jordan will do most of the inductions

Jordan will additionally present Baylor mentor Kim Mulkey, who drove her team to three NCAA national titles and is the lone individual to at any point win titles as a player, assistant coach and a lead trainer.

The ceremony will also honor coaches: Rudy Tomjanovich, Barbara Stevens and Eddie Sutton, who passed on in May last year, and Swiss b-ball executive Patrick Baumann, who also died in 2018.
