See Vanessa Bryant’s Hall of Fame speech on behalf of her late husband, Kobe
The long-awaited 2020 Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame is possibly one of the best in the history of the sport. It includes NBA legends like Tim Duncan and Kevin Garnett, a major WNBA in Tamika Catchings, and a stellar list of coaches including Rudy Tomjanovich and Eddie Sutton and Barbara Stevens. But the night will likely be most vividly remembered when Vanessa Bryant gave a speech on behalf of her late husband Kobe Bryant, longtime Los Angeles Lakers star and five-time NBA champion who was killed in a helicopter crash last year, alongside his teenage boy Daughter Gianna and seven others. “All of your hard work and sacrifices have been worth it,” said Vanessa Bryant, who was accompanied on stage by Michael Jordan, her husband’s hero and mentor, at the end of her speech and spoke to her husband. “You once told me, ‘If you want to bet on someone, bet on yourself.’ Glad you bet yourself, you high flyer. You did it. You are now in the Hall of Fame. You are a true champion. You are not just an MVP, you are an all-time great . “” Check out the full speech below.
