Basketball Hall of Fame inductees Duncan, Garnett remember Kobe Bryant

Former NBA stars Tim Duncan and Kevin Garnett remembered Kobe Bryant Friday (May 14), one day before all three will be inducted the Basketball Hall of Fame by NBA great Michael Jordan.

Speaking at a news conference in Connecticut, Duncan and Garnett spoke of their memories of the Laker great.

“The greatest competition brings the best out of you and that’s what he always did. You always had to be at your best and bring your best from start to finish if you were playing against him,” longtime San Antonio Spurs star Duncan said.

Garnett, who was drafted into the NBA out of high school in 1995, one year ahead of Bryant, talked about the relationship the two had right from the beginning of their pro careers.

Bryant is one of three members of the class who will be enshrined posthumously; longtime FIBA executive Patrick Baumann and college coach Eddie Sutton will also be honored.
