TSR Angelz: TSR Sports–The Naismith Basketball Hall Of Fame class of 2020 was already set to feature some of the greatest name in the sport, and one more legend has been added to the list. Kobe Bryant tragically lost his life in a helicopter crash, and it has just been announced he will be amongst the inductees as well.
According to NBC Sports, Kobe Bryant will be a “first-ballot enshrinement into the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame class of 2020.” He joins Tim Duncan, Kevin Garnett and some of his fiercest competitors in a great part of basketball history.

Kobe Bryant retired back in 2016, and is now eligible to be inducted into the hall of fame. Basketball players are eligible for the Hall of Fame after they have been fully retired from play for at least three years.
As we previously reported, Kobe Bryant passed away in a helicopter crash, along with hit daughter Gianna and seven other passengers. His passing has had an impact on so many people who admire hit grit, tenacity, and and his commitment to being a great father, husband, and business man.
He will be greatly missed, and we ask that you all continue to keep his family and loved ones in your prayers, Roomies!
