Kobe Bryant, Kevin Garnett Among Finalists For Basketball Hall Of Fame 2020

The 2020 Basketball Hall of Fame class is going to be absolutely loaded.

Of course, such a thing is not a surprise given what a Hall of Fame represents. But nevertheless, the Basketball Hall of Fame on Friday revealed the finalists for the Class of 2020, and it’s a pretty impressive group including Kobe Bryant, Kevin Garnett and Tim Duncan.

This caps off a good week for Garnett. During the Boston Celtics’ win over the Los Angeles Clippers, the Celtics announced they would be retiring Garnett’s No. 5 next season. Garnett won a title during his six-year run with Boston, and finished his career as a nine-time All-NBA selection.

Bryant, who died last month in a helicopter crash that killed eight others, including his daughter, was another unsurprising finalist. One of the greatest NBA players of all time, Bryant was a 15-time All-NBA selection and five-time NBA champ.

The Class of 2020 will be announced April 4.
