Tim Duncan, Kevin Garnett will join Kobe Bryant in Basketball Hall of Fame
The 2020 Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame class will be as legendary as anticipated.
According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, Kobe Bryant, Tim Duncan, and Kevin Garnett will be the Class of 2020. An official announcement is expected over the weekend.
Mark Berman of FOX 26 Houston added that five-time All-Star and two-time title-winning head coach Rudy Tomjanovich has also been voted in as part of the class.
Wow! NBA sources: Former #Rockets Coach Rudy Tomjanovich elected to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.

The group of the first three players is no surprise, and it was predicted to be this way several weeks ago. It’s also nice to see Tomjanovich, one of the most accomplished NBA personalities around, get his due. This promises to be a must-see ceremony, and it will be an emotional one as Bryant’s absence will weigh heavily.
