The announcement of this year's Basketball Hall of Fame finalists in Chicago on Friday will be largely about the memory of Kobe Bryant, and rightly so. This All-Star weekend is the first huge gathering of the NBA family since Bryant, his 13-year-old daughter Gianna and seven others were killed in a helicopter crash in Southern California on Jan. 26. They’ll be remembered and honored throughout the weekend, and it’s a safe bet that Commissioner Adam Silver - in his annual All-Star news conference Saturday - has plenty to say about Bryant. It'll be a very Kobe-centric weekend.
