Basketball Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony Pushed Back to Spring 2021

A Hall of Fame class headlined by the likes of Tim Duncan, Kevin Garnett, and Kobe Bryant will have to wait until spring 2021 in light of the coronavirus pandemic.

Initially pushed back late Summer, the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame committee has opted to delay the 2020 induction ceremony until next spring. Jerry Colangelo, the chairman of the board of governors for the Hall, said that his group will hold a meeting on June 10th to decide on a new date.

“We’re definitely canceling. It’s going to have to be the first quarter of next year. We’ll meet in a couple of weeks and look at the options of how and when and where,” said Colangelo.

Despite the ceremony moving back by a year, Colangelo also noted that the plan is to hold two separate ceremonies next year – a delayed ceremony for the 2020 class and one for the 2021 class.

“We won’t be combining them. The Class of 2020 is a very special class and deserves its own celebration.”

Paul Pierce, Chris Bosh, Chris Webber, and Chauncey Billups Headline a potential 2021 class.
