Hoops Hall mulls date for Bryant, Class of 2020 induction

Because of the coronavirus outbreak, the reopening has been pushed back two months to July 1 and the induction ceremony is being postponed, either to October or the spring. Complicating the potential possibility of a spring 2021 induction: The Hall doesnt know what the NBA and college basketball seasons will look like then. Doleva said the Hall decided against inducting Bryant alone and gave no thought to having a separate ceremony for him.

Kobe Bryant's Basketball Hall of Fame Induction Postponed Until 2021
Jerry Colangelo, the chairman of the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame's board of governors, told ESPN's Jackie MacMullan Wednesday that the 2020 induction ceremony has been delayed until the spring of 2021. Colangelo also confirmed that the 2020 class will have its own ceremony distinct from the one that will eventually be held for the class of 2021. The 2020 Hall of Fame class has already been considered one of the best in history, and is headlined by Kobe Bryant, Tim Duncan, Kevin Garnett and Tamika Catchings. The Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame had just undergone a $23 million renovation and had planned to reopen on March 25, according to McMullen.
