Fans gather at L.A. Live for Kobe and Gianna Bryant memorialA steady stream of fans poured near Staples Center into an alleyway across from the Los Angeles Convention Center to see one of several Kobe Bryant murals that have popped up around town since his helicopter crashed. Patrick Titus, 25, of Lakewood, and Gabriel Real, 23, of Watts, had been driving around the city since 9 a.m. to visit different murals dedicated to Bryant and the other victims. Real said it’s important to see the artwork others have done to honor Bryant, who was his favorite player. He even skipped school to watch Bryant's final game with his uncle, who paid upwards of $1,600 for the pair of tickets. When Real turns 24 this year — the “Kobe Year," as it’s colloquially called — he said he will have a Lakers-themed party.
