The plans for Kobe and Gigi Bryant’s Staples Center memorial are getting locked down and details, like who will speak and perform and who will be on stage for the service will be unveiled later today.
Obviously there will be a number of invited guests, family members, former teammates, etc who get tickets first, then season ticket holders will get ticket options.
Speculation is that the remaining seats in the upper bowl will be sold to the public at a price that reflects the memories of Kobe and Gigi…. $24.02 with the net proceeds going to a charity selected by the family.
