Kobe Bryant's Induction Into The Basketball Hall of Fame Has Been Postponed

Kobe Bryant fans will have to wait just a little bit for his induction ceremony into the Basketball Hall of Fame.

Jerry Colangelo, the chairman of the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame’s board of governors, revealed to ESPN that the induction ceremony had been delayed until the spring of 2021.

“We’re definitely canceling,” he shared. “It’s going to have to be the first quarter of next year. We’ll meet in a couple of weeks and look at the options of how and when and where.”

The ceremony was originally scheduled to take place on August 29, with Columbus Day Weekend as a backup date.

The 2020 Hall of Fame class includes Kobe, Tim Duncan, Kevin Garnett and Tamika Catchings, as well as former Houston Rockets coach Rudy Tomjanovich, former collegiate coach Eddie Sutton, Baylor women’s basketball coach Kim Mulkey, former women’s college basketball coach Barbara Stevens and former FIBA and IOC executive Patrick Baumann.
