More than 20,000 people are expected to celebrate the lives of Kobe and Gianna Bryant as part of a memorial service at Staples Center on Monday.
The public service comes nearly one month after Kobe, Gianna and seven others died in a helicopter crash in Calabasas, Calif. The date (Feb. 24) was chosen as a way to honor Gianna’s No. 2 and Kobe’s No. 24.
ESPN and NBA TV will cover the service live, but you can also watch a live stream of the service below.
