Tim Duncan making 2020 Class for the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame is something everyone saw coming since the instant he retired in 2016, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t worthy of celebration.

Although they’d likely prefer to tell him in person, it’s not an option under today’s current circumstances, so likely along with phone call, his fellow Big Three members Manu Ginobili and Tony Parker (likely members of the HOF Classes of ‘22 and ‘23, respectively) released their own videos congratulating their longest-tenured teammate.

Assuming the ceremony goes on as planned on August 29, they will surely be there to honor him in person.
