The Staples Center is set to be packed to the rafters tonight as the home of the Los Angeles Lakers hold a memorial service for Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna. The two members of the Bryant family were among nine victims in a tragic helicopter crash on January 26.
The entire NBA world was in mourning following the news, with current and former players visibly emotional in the ensuing days.
Kobe’s wife, Vanessa Bryant, announced two weeks ago that a service would take place on February 24 – numbers that resonate with both Kobe and Gianna.
More than 80,000 people applied for tickets to see Bryant’s service with proceeds going towards the Mamba & Mambacita Sports Foundation.
A number of NBA legends – current and former – are expected to be in attendance with the service getting underway at 6pm GMT.
