Los Angeles Laker’s Legend, Shaquille O’Neil, says he won’t be watching Kobe Bryant’s Hall of Fame induction that’s scheduled for August 29, 2020.
O’Neil discussed his feelings on his podcast, The Big Podcast with Shaq, "I'm actually not going to watch the Hall of Fame ceremony,” he said, “On the scale of sadness from 1 to 10, I'm finally at least at a 2 now. That would bring it back to a 7, 8, 9 and I can't right now. So I don't want to see old highlights that I'm already watching now."
Kobe Bryant and his 13-year-old daughter Gianna, and 7 other passengers died shockingly on January 26th in a helicopter crash.
Bryant will be inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, alongside inductees Tim Duncan and Kevin Garnett. As of yet, the ceremony has not been canceled due to the coronavirus outbreak.
