After electing a star-studded Class of 2020 -- led by NBA legends Tim Duncan, Kevin Garnett and the late Kobe Bryant -- the Basketball Hall of Fame will officially enshrine two classes in 2021.

The full Class of 2020 was unveiled on April 4, 2020. The nine new members of the Basketball Hall of Fame were enshrined Saturday at Mohegan Sun Casino and Resort in Connecticut, after the original 2020 ceremony was delayed and relocated due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The Class of 2021 will be enshrined later this year. Finalists for this year's class were unveiled on March 9, and the full class was revealed Sunday as part of the Class of 2020 enshrinement weekend.
