Watch Natalia Bryant put on Kobe’s Hall of Fame jacket


The memory and legacy of Kobe Bryant hang over this Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame weekend — there is even a redone exhibit on the life of Kobe in the Hall of Fame now.

Friday night, when they handed out the Hall of Fame jackets to this year’s inductees — including Tim Duncan and Kevin Garnett — Kobe’s wife Vanessa and daughter Natalia were on stage. Vanessa helped put the jacket on Natalia while chants of “Kobe, Kobe” rang out through the building.

It was a touching moment.

More will come on Saturday when Bryant is formally inducted into the Hall of Fame, and Vanessa will speak at the event.
