Staples Center Sending Memorial Items Left By Fans To Vanessa Bryant”

Kobe Bryant received a special tribute at the 2020 Super Bowl in Miami, one week after he and his 13-year-old daughter Gianna were killed in a helicopter crash in California. The items are being cataloged and will be delivered to the Bryant family at the request of Kobe's widow, Vanessa Bryant, Zeidman said.

Bryant's wife Vanessa has asked Staples Center's operators if she and her family could keep the items left outside the arena in the week following the death of her husband, according to Broderick Turner of the Los Angeles Times.

The collection of items left at the LA Live entertainment center included flowers, candles, balloons, artwork, photographs, jerseys, basketballs and stuffed animals, among other items.

"We're going to compost all those flowers out there and spread them around the plants in and around L.A. Live and in and around Staples Centre", Zeidman said.

"It will have been a week", Zeidman told the LA Times.

They told iOne Digital in a statement, "On behalf of our family, we join Vanessa, Natalia, Bianka and Capri in grieving the loss of Kobe and Gianna in such a tragic accident". Kobe Inc. president Molly Carter said in a statement via The Los Angeles Times, "We are disappointed in some media's broad use of unnamed sources and blind quotes, and remind everyone that the Bryant family will speak on our own behalf when appropriate".
