The 2020 Hall of Fame ceremony is in the books, headlined by the trio of Kobe Bryant, Tim Duncan and Kevin Garnett, making it arguably the greatest Hall of Fame class of all time.
Eddie Sutton, Rudy Tomjanovich, Tamika Catchings, Kim Mulkey, Barbara Stevens and Patrick Baumann also made their way into the Hall of Fame, with nine basketball legends taking their place in Springfield.
NBA players, past and present, took to Twitter to congratulate the star-studded class on their achievements.

And then there's Kobe. A legend in every sense of the word. Someone who was as great in retirement as he was during his playing career. Sending my best to his wife Vanessa, and his daughters Natalia, Bianka and Capri. #MambaForever #33 #GirlDad #20HoopClass pic.twitter.com/qtmAxR2uGn- Scottie Pippen (@ScottiePippen) May 16, 2021
