Michael Jordan will present Kobe Bryant into the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame at the induction ceremony on May 15th.
Presenters, who must already be in the Hall of Fame, are often on stage alongside the inductee, but they normally don’t give speeches.
The Los Angeles Lakers great modeled his game after Jordan's, especially early in his career.
In the case of posthumous inductees, a person accepts the award on their behalf and gives a speech.
It is not clear yet who will accept the award on Bryant’s behalf.
