Kobe Bryant & his daughter Gianna Bryant will be remembered at a special memorial ceremony put on by the Los Angeles Lakers and Kobe’s Mamba & Mambacita Sports Foundation today. The “Celebration of Life” will happen at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
The Staples Center, nicknamed ‘the house that Kobe built‘ is where Kobe spent most of his two-decade NBA career playing for the Lakers. Today’s date is special, too, since it reps Gianna & Kobe’s jersey numbers – plus 20 representing the number of years he spent as a laker.
2 (Gianna’s number) – 24 (Kobe’s number) – 20 (years Kobe spent as a Laker)
Since we are in Charlotte, it might be a little hard to get over to the West coast for the celebration tonight, but no worries…you can pay your respects no matter where you are. “Entertainment Tonight” will be live streaming the entire event at 1pm ET.
You can tune in on ETLive.com or on the ET Live app.
In honor of Kobe & Gianna, below are some of our favorite snapshots of the two together. Rest In Peace.
