Kobe Bryant’s Wife Accepts Late Husband’s Basketball Hall of Fame Admission

Legendary basketball player Kobe Bryant received a well-deserved posthumous honor — admission into the Basketball Hall of Fame Class of 2020, Black Enterprise reported.

Bryant’s wife, Vanessa Bryant, accepted her late husband’s honorable recognition this past Saturday.

On Saturday night, Vanessa Bryant, the widow of the NBA star Kobe Bryant, accepted her late husband’s admission into the Basketball Hall of Fame Class of 2020, according to ESPN. The ceremony occurred at Mohegan Sun Casino in Connecticut.

Bryant gave honor to her husband during her very touching acceptance speech and said that he was “still winning” even in death. 

“I used to always avoid praising my husband in public because I felt like he got enough praise from his fans around the world and someone had to bring him back to reality,” she said during her speech, according to Black Enterprise. “Right now, I’m sure he’s laughing in heaven because I’m about to praise him in public for his accomplishments on one of the most public stages.”
