As expected, Kobe Bryant was officially announced as an inductee into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame on Saturday.

Shortly after the announcement, the late superstar's wife Vanessa and daughter Natalia appeared on ESPN to speak about the honor.

"It's an incredible accomplishment and honor and we're extremely proud of him," Bryant said.

"Obviously, we wish that he was here with us to celebrate," she added. "But it's definitely the peak of his NBA career, and every accomplishment that he had as an athlete was a stepping stone to be here. We're incredibly proud of him, there's some solace in knowing that he was probably going to be a part of the 2020 Hall of Fame class."
