El funeral de la leyenda de la NBA, Kobe Bryant y de su hija Gianna Maria, además de las siete personas que murieron el pasado 26 de enero en el accidente aéreo, tendrá lugar el día 24 de febrero en el Staples Center.

¿Por qué se ha postergado el funeral de Kobe?

Se ha elegido el Staples Center por una razón muy razonable. Fue en el pabellón de la franquicia norteamericana donde el exjugador de Los Lakers hizo historia durante 20 temporadas. El día del funeral también ha sido elegido con cierto criterio ya que el 24 es en honor al dorsal que defendía en la camiseta y, en el mes de febrero, por el 2 que llevaba su hija Gianna con su equipo.

El Staples Center ha albergado otros funerales de personas famosas en los últimos tiempos, como el del cantante Michael Jackson.

My girls and I want to thank the millions of people who’ve shown support and love during this horrific time. Thank you for all the prayers. We definitely need them. We are completely devastated by the sudden loss of my adoring husband, Kobe — the amazing father of our children; and my beautiful, sweet Gianna — a loving, thoughtful, and wonderful daughter, and amazing sister to Natalia, Bianka, and Capri. We are also devastated for the families who lost their loved ones on Sunday, and we share in their grief intimately. There aren’t enough words to describe our pain right now. I take comfort in knowing that Kobe and Gigi both knew that they were so deeply loved. We were so incredibly blessed to have them in our lives. I wish they were here with us forever. They were our beautiful blessings taken from us too soon. I’m not sure what our lives hold beyond today, and it’s impossible to imagine life without them. But we wake up each day, trying to keep pushing because Kobe, and our baby girl, Gigi, are shining on us to light the way. Our love for them is endless — and that’s to say, immeasurable. I just wish I could hug them, kiss them and bless them. Have them here with us, forever. Thank you for sharing your joy, your grief and your support with us. We ask that you grant us the respect and privacy we will need to navigate this new reality. To honor our Team Mamba family, the Mamba Sports Foundation has set up the MambaOnThree Fund to help support the other families affected by this tragedy. To donate, please go to To further Kobe and Gianna’s legacy in youth sports, please visit Thank you so much for lifting us up in your prayers, and for loving Kobe, Gigi, Natalia, Bianka, Capri and me. #Mamba #Mambacita #GirlsDad #DaddysGirls #Family ❤️

Mientras tanto siguen siendo investigadas las causas del accidente por la Junta Nacional de Seguridad del Transporte y según las últimas informaciones se habla de una mala maniobra del piloto, sumada a la escasa visibilidad por la niebla.
