Vanessa Bryant Reacts to Kobe Being Posthumously Inducted Into Basketball Hall of Fame

Vanessa Bryant is speaking out in response to the happy news that her late husband Kobe Bryant will be posthumously inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame.

The official announcement was made on Saturday afternoon (April 4) and Vanessa appeared on ESPN with her 17-year-old daughter Natalia to talk about the honor.

“It’s an incredible accomplishment and honor and we’re extremely proud of him,” Vanessa said. “Obviously we wish that he was here with us to celebrate but it’s definitely the peak of his NBA career.”

“Every accomplishment that he had as an athlete was a stepping stone to be here. We’re incredibly proud of him. There’s some solace in knowing that he was probably going to be a part of the 2020 Hall of Fame class,” she added.

Two other basketball legends will be inducted into the HOF alongside Kobe.
