Kobe Bryant recently settled a lawsuit with his parents, who were trying to sell some of the basketball star’s memorabilia. Bryant successfully protested the auction, saying that the items belonged to him and that his mother had no right to sell them.
While most of the items were pulled from the auction as part of the terms of the settlement between the parties, some items are still being auctioned.
