A memorial service inside Staples Center on Monday celebrated the lives of Los Angeles Lakers legend Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna. The date -- Feb. 24 -- reflects the basketball jersey numbers worn by Kobe (No. 24) and Gianna (No. 2). The service was held just less than a month after Bryant, 13-year-old Gianna and seven others died in a helicopter crash in Calabasas, California, on Jan. 26.

More than 20,000 people -- friends, family and those who acquired tickets through a lottery (80,000 applied) -- crowded into the arena, with ticket proceeds benefiting the Mamba & Mambacita Sports Foundation.

Vanessa Bryant, Michael Jordan, Shaquille O'Neal and Diana Taurasi were among those who spoke during the memorial, while Beyonce, Alicia Keys and Christina Aguilera performed.

Here is how Los Angeles, the Lakers and the NBA world honored Kobe and Gianna Bryant.
