  • Los Angeles Lakers legend Kobe Bryant killed in a plane crash last month was among eight finalists named Friday for consideration for 2020 election to the Basketball Hall of Fame

Three weeks after Kobe Bryant, one of the most dominant players in NBA history, was killed with his daughter and seven others in a helicopter crash, the global sports icon was named a finalist to the Basketball Hall of Fame.

Bryant, his 13-year-old daughter Gianna and seven others were killed January 26 when the helicopter they were aboard crashed in Calabasas, California, as they were flying to a basketball tournament where Gianna was to play with her team.

The finalists were picked from nearly 200 nominees, and announced at the United Center on Friday during NBA All-Star Weekend.

Friday the Hall of Fame announced the eight finalists for induction into the Hall of Fame this year, and - as we had known for years - this is a stacked class.

"In my case it was personal... so much more hard for me and family", said Colangelo, a long-time National Basketball Association executive who was inducted in the Hall of Fame in 2004.
