Michael Jordan Will Present Kobe Bryant at Hall of Fame Induction

Michael Jordan will be the presenter for the late Kobe Bryant's induction into the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame on May 15.

Jordan will also be the presenter for Baylor women's basketball coach Kim Mulkey. 

Bryant is the headliner of the 2020 Hall of Fame class that also includes Tim Duncan and Kevin Garnett. 

Bryant has long looked up to Jordan, even imitating his moves when he came into the league. 

At Bryant's memorial service, Jordan referred to Bryant as his "little brother." 

“Kobe was my dear friend; he was like a little brother,” Jordan said last February. "When Kobe died, a little piece of me died. ... This kid had passion like you would never know. As I got to know him, I wanted to be the best big brother that I could be.”
