Oh yes, the Hall of Fame . That’s why we’ve gathered here today, to study the slam-dunk inclusions of Timmy , Kobe and KG, and that actually doesn’t involve much brain intensity at all. These are three players who captured imaginations in their own distinct ways, became all-time greats at their positions and arguably were the league’s finest players from beginning to end of the 2000 decade (for you LeBron James worshippers, remember he didn’t crash the party until 2003-04, so pipe down). The legendary NBA careers of Tim Duncan , Kevin Garnett and Kobe Bryant may never be duplicated. April 4, 2020 .

The Hall of Fame also announced that it had eliminated several full-time positions and cut pay for senior management by 25% to 40% due to declining revenues from the pandemic.

Going head-to-head with Garnett and the Boston Celtics in 2008 and 2010, Bryant would collect one of his five rings in the reintroduction of the classic Lakers-Celtics rivalry.

"That was our parallel. As much as he wanted to win, I wanted to win. As much as he thought he was the best, I thought I was the best. It was great back and forth, it was great competition. I don't think I'm the only one in here that thinks Kobe Bryant is missed. I miss him everyday and what he brought not just to the game of basketball but to sports period."

Kobe Bryant , Tim Duncan and Kevin Garnett headline the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame ’s Class of 2020 announced Saturday. The nine-member class will be enshrined in Springfield, Mass., on Aug. In light of the unique circumstance surrounding the Class of 2020 , the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame Election Process Committee suspended the Direct Election Categories for one year with the exception of the International Committee.

The rivalry on the biggest stage between Bryant and Duncan started a little earlier, with the Lakers and Spurs ruling the Western Conference for over a decade. The West was represented by the Lakers or Spurs in 13 out of 16 seasons between 1999 and 2014, with Bryant and Duncan at the forefront of their franchise's success.

"The greatest competition brings the best out of you and that's what he always did. You always had to be at your best and bring your best from start to finish if you were playing against him or any of his teams," Duncan said.

The Lakers and Spurs met in the conference finals in 2001 and 2008, with Bryant coming out on top with an 8-1 record across those two series.

"I think that's what I appreciate about remembering playing against him and being on the court with him. A fierce competitor and always demanding more of his team and his teammates than probably was possible but he wanted to win that much, he wanted it that much and it was an honour to share the court with him."

Combining for 11 championships, four MVPs and 48 All-Star selections, the trio will go down as the three of the best to ever play the game.
