The date for the memorial service of late NBA legend, Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna, has been fixed, as the event will be taking place on February 24 at Staples Center in Los Angeles.
Kobe and Gianna died in a helicopter crash in the Calabasas in California, and the Mayor of Los Angeles, Eric Garcetti has revealed that plans are on the way for the memorial for Kobe and his daughter. He said;
“I think one message that I would say is this is not just about a man who was a basketball player, this is about a father, this is about a leader, this is about a filmmaker, this is about an artist, this is about somebody who was so much more than just how he was on the court.”
“It’s a reminder how much unity we have, though. We are one city that believes in each other, believes in something bigger than ourselves and we will absolutely do everything to make sure that this is done so that everybody can come to it as well“.
