Due to the global pandemic, the 2020 Hall of Fame enshrinement was moved next year instead of August this year.
The Naismith Memorial Hall of Fame announced that on May 13, 2021, at the Mohegan Sun Casino in Uncasville, Connecticut. It will run between May 13-15, 2021.
“These are people who have been a big part of Hall’s success in recent years; it hurts deeply,” said John Doleva, President and CEO of the Hall of Fame. “The decision to reschedule Enshrinement into May of next year, along with diminished museum guest visitation and a very uncertain future regarding our multiple collegiate and high school basketball events this fall, has forced us to make these very difficult decisions. Our goal now is to conserve resources so that we may stabilize in 2021 and return to our growth trajectory in 2022 and beyond.”
Tim Duncan is part of the class 2020 which included arch-rival late Kobe Bryant and Kevin Garnett. Duncan played 19 seasons with an impressive resume. Five-time champions, two-time season MVP, a three-time Finals MVP, and a lot of accolades. The Spurs legend put the team on the map and the only small-market team that wins multiple championships.
