Kobe to be inducted to NBA HOF

It was announced Monday by HOF chairmen Jerry Colangelo that Kobe will be inducted and honored at this year’s Hall of fame ceremony.

Bryant was announced as a nominee back in December alongside KG, Tim Duncan, and Tim Hardaway. In what was set to be one of the most start-studded HOF classes in NBA history.

Following Sunday’s tragic incident Colangelo decided to skip typical HOF voting processes and announce Bryant as an inductee.

Kobe retired in 2016 as a five-time NBA champion, 11-time ALL-NBA first-team selections, 2008 MVP, two-time Finals MVP, 18-time all-star and Four-time all-star MVP. Playing all 20 seasons with the purple and gold.
