Kobe Bryant and his 13-year-old daughter, Gianna, will be honored in a public memorial service in Los Angeles on Monday. Around 20,000 are expected to attend the service in Staples Center, which became known as the “House that Kobe Built” during his career with the Los Angeles Lakers. Bryant and his daughter died in a helicopter crash along with seven others on Jan. 26. Tickets were offered online to the general public via a registration and presale, with proceeds going to the Mamba and Mambacita Sports Foundation.
