The 2020 class of the Naismith Hall of Fame club looks to feature a star-studded cast. Accordingly, Tim Duncan and Kobe Bryant could potentially headline the list of candidates.
Additionally, those who could potentially join the rivals are Kevin Garnett and Coach Gregg Popovich of the San Antonio Spurs. Apparently, the four Basketball A-listers have all acquired Hall of Fame eligibility this year. Hence, the panel only needs to vote them in to be enshrined among the timeless greats.
Tim Duncan and Coach Pop: Together Forever
Tim Duncan and Coach Pop won five championships together with the San Antonio Spurs. Despite being eligible for enshrinement years before, Coach Pop refused to be nominated as he had wanted to go up the wall together with his most dominant player ever. Apparently, the two share a very intimate and lasting relationship beyond the hardcourt. Fortunately, this may be granted very soon as Duncan looks to get first time nomination.
Also, Los Angeles Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant acquires first ballot eligibility for Hall of Fame awards next year. Based on reports, all odds favor a first-time nomination for Bryant. Notably, Kobe Bryant played his entire 20-year career with the Lakers, winning 5 championships for the purple and gold. According to Zack Buckley of Bleacher Report ” Bryant has been destined for the Hall of Fame for more than a decade. The only debates he remains in surround his position among the greatest ever to lace them up”. True enough, one cannot argue with that as Bryant polarized the league throughout his entire career.
Additionally, Kevin Garnett could likewise potentially join the three players and coach for enshrinement. Garnett played more than 20 seasons across different teams in the NBA. Notably, Garnett’s stints with the Minnesota Timberwolves and Boston Celtics take center stage. “The Big Ticket” finally won a championship with the Boston Celtics in 2007.
