"When I reflect on this tragedy and the half an hour that I spent with Kobe Bryant two years ago I suppose the only small source of comfort for me is knowing he died doing what he loved the most", she said during the segment. Not to mention, there was a public mourning going on inside Staples Center during the first game back as well as fans leaving a huge memorial for their fallen hero outside the stadium.

The date (2/24) is significant, #24 was Kobe's jersey number and #2 was the number his daughter, Gigi, wore.

"I have gone through 20 years of the majority of my career with my kids Natalia and Gianna without being able to have that consistently", Bryant said.

Vanessa Bryant posted a graphic on Instagram morning to announce the service, a day after reports surfaced about the memorial.


The National Transportation Safety Board had recommended the system be required for helicopters.

The remains of all the victims were released to their families on Monday, the Los Angeles County coroner's office said.

As we beforehand reported, Kobe Bryant, sadly, handed away final month, alongside along with his 13-year-old daughter Gianna, and 7 different stunning souls.

"On Saturday", LA Times sports columnist Arash Markazi shared a recording in the last sit-down interview he conducted Bryant at October 2019.


The massive memorial - which, according to Staples Centers President Lee Zeidman, included 14 large banners, over 1,300 basketballs, 25,000 candles, 5,000 signs and letters, 500 stuffed animals and 350 pairs of shoes - was dismantled on February 3.

Staples has moreover been home to a makeshift memorial to Kobe and Gianna.

In the weeks following Bryant's death on January 26, thousands of fans converged on the arena to pay their respects, leaving flowers, basketballs, and other tributes outside the arena where Bryant rose to stardom.

Staples Center, also the home of the NHL's Los Angeles Kings and venue for concerts and events such as the recent Grammy Awards, has hosted memorials for recording artists Michael Jackson and Nipsey Hussle.


The crash also claimed the lives of Sarah Chester, 45; Keri Altobelli, 46; John Altobelli, 56; and the helicopter's pilot, Ara Zobayan, 50.
