Kobe Bryant was officially inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. Bryant was presented by Michael Jordan before Bryant’s wife, Vanessa Bryant, made a moving speech honoring the former Laker.  At age 41, Bryant is the rare legend to die prior to his own Hall of Fame induction. The world will never know what he might have said on this evening.

Vanessa Bryant said: “Kobe was on a different level. He never took shortcuts when it came to basketball. He gave this game his all.”
