The memorial service, which is scheduled to begin at 10 AM PT, will not be shown on video screens outside Staples Center or across the street at L.A. Live. The Lakers “strongly advised” fans without tickets to watch from home rather than congregating outside Staples Center.

Kobe, Gianna and seven others, including parents, coaches and players on Bryant’s Mamba Academy basketball team, were killed in a January 26 helicopter crash in Calabasas, CA. They were en route to the Mamba Sports Academy in Thousand Oaks, where Gianna’s basketball team was scheduled to play in a tournament later that day.

The February 24, 2020 date of the public memorial holds special significance for the Bryants. No. 24 was Bryant’s jersey number and No. 2 was his daughter’s.
