Kobe Bryant Hall of Fame Ceremony: Date, Time and How to Watch on TV and Online

The late Kobe Bryant will be formally enshrined in the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame on Saturday, nearly 18 weeks after his life was tragically cut short.

Bryant and his 13-year old daughter Gigi were one of the nine people killed when the helicopter they were flying in crashed in Calabasas, California on January 26, 2020.

The late Los Angeles Lakers celebrity was chosen to be inducted into the Hall of Fame this past year, only for the yearly service to be postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

After a lengthy delay, Bryant will posthumously be enshrined into the Hall of Fame and will be inducted by his friend and mentor Michael Jordan.

Jordan stepped away from the game for another time after winning a sixth NBA name in 1998, at the end of Bryant’s next season in the league. The latter picked up Jordan’s mantle and went on to win five NBA titles, two scoring titles and 2 NBA Finals MVP implants over a 20-year career.
