Sorry for the delay in posts guys, been pretty busy. Anyway, if you’ve been paying attention to the sports news lately you would’ve noticed that Kobe Bryant and his mom have run into a few issues. They are currently embroiled in a court battle of epic proportions, I mean besides troubled child stars (Macaulay Culkin shout out) who sues their parents!? But Kobe may have a valid point. According to an ESPN report, his mother, Pam Bryant is selling jerseys from both his pro career and also from Lower Merion (his highschool). Additionally she is looking to get rid of 3 rings, including his 2000 NBA championship ring. She anticipated to be paid $450,000.

Kobe is not pleased with his mom...or Dwight, probably mostly Dwight

Now this is where it gets fun. According to reports she wants to use the money to buy a new home. However, Kobe has already offered her up to $250,000 for a new home. Now Kobe makes like $52 million dollars a year whats $450,000 dollars to give your parents a home? The issue is, according to Bryan, he has already given millions of dollars to his parents over his career. When he puts it that way I guess it kinda makes sense. However, according to even more reports (so many reports) according to Pam (first name basis) Kobe (also first name basis) had given her these things and made it clear he didn’t want them. Because hey, once you have 5 rings what’s giving one away?

In any event, Kobe has filed a cease-and-desist against the auction company, so now we wait and see what happens. Should Kobe sue his mom? Is his mom right? Should he try to sell her Dwight? Drop one in the comment box.
