Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna will be remembered at a memorial at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Monday at 10 a.m. PT (or 1 p.m. ET). Bryant, 41, and Gianna, 13, were among nine people killed in a helicopter crash near Los Angeles on January 26.

Thousands of fans are expected to attend. Streets and businesses around the arena will be closed. Organizers have not released a program for the event.

Earlier this month, Vanessa Bryant announced the plans for the memorial on Instagram. She pointed out the significance of the date: 2/24/20. 

Gianna, who hoped to play for the WNBA someday, wore a No. 2 jersey and Kobe wore No. 24. The five-time NBA champion played his entire 20-season professional career at Staples Center.

A private funeral was held at Pacific View Memorial Park in Corona Del Mar on February 7, according to Entertainment Tonight.

This story has been updated to correct Gianna's age; she was 13, not 14.
