Thousands of fans, friends and supporters are currently at the Staples Center for the Kobe Bryant tribute. The moment, a bittersweet one, is also one that over 80,000 people tried to be a part of when tickets went on sale just two weeks ago. Unfortunately, Staples Center only has 20,000 seats, so the majority of fans will be unable to be inside, but luckily we have a live feed available here.
We will also be updating this story throughout the program highlighting speakers and performers.
