Additional special elements during TNT's NBA All-Star Game presentation will include a Los Angeles Lakers-themed tribute to Bryant within the virtual shot clock - displaying a combination of gold and purple accents at 24 seconds and eight seconds remaining on the clock during the fourth quarter, representing Bryant's jersey numbers.
Bryant, his 13-year-old daughter and seven others were killed January 26 when the helicopter they were aboard crashed in Calabasas, California, as they were flying to a basketball tournament where Gianna was to play with her team.
Vanessa Bryant has renamed her husband Kobe's Mamba Sports Foundation to Mamba and Mambacita Sports Foundation as the grieving widow of the late National Basketball Association legend moves to cement the legacy of her late daughter Gianna.
Staples Center, known as "the house that Kobe built", is where Bryant starred for most of his 20-year career with the Los Angeles Lakers.
TMZ reports the memorial service will be televised live on "multiple networks" and the streets around the Staples Center will be closed for "security and traffic control".
