The memorial will pay tribute to Kobe and his daughter Gianna nearly a month after they were killed with 7 others in a helicopter crash.
The memorial service, dubbed “A Celebration of Life,” will begin at 10 a.m. for 20,000 people at the arena where Bryant played for the Los Angeles Lakers.
Details on speakers and performers have not yet been announced, though the service will feature music and retrospectives on Kobe Bryant’s career, along with speakers reflecting on his impact on his sport and the world. Bryant’s family, dozens of sports greats and many major figures in Bryant’s public life are expected to attend.
Fans began arriving hours ahead of the public memorial. Among them was 72-year-old Bob Melendez, who says he has been a Lakers season ticket holder for 40 years. Melendez says that after seeing Bryant play for many years he couldn’t imagine missing it. He wore a black No. 24 jersey and Lakers jacket he bought for Bryant’s final game.
“I’d never dreamed I’d be wearing this” at Bryant’s memorial, he said.
