“The Lakers wore these white jerseys on Sunday home games and Bryant wore this Size 4XL (LENGTH +4”) jersey during the November 9th game vs Charlotte, where he scored 21 points in a 107-92 victory, the team’s first of the season. Bryant also wore this jersey the following two Sundays against Golden State on November 16th, a 136-115 loss where he poured in a season-high 44 points and on November 23rd against the Denver Nuggets where he dropped 27 points in a 101-94 defeat. All told, Bryant averaged 30.66 in three games that he wore this jersey.”
“Kobe Bryant averaged 24.6 points per game in the five-game series and scored 26 points in Game 5, where the Lakers closed out the Sixers in Philadelphia on June 15, 2001. This was Bryant’s second career title in a Hall of Famer career that saw the Black Mamba lead the Lakers to five NBA titles. Offered here are the very black sneakers worn by Bryant during Game 5 and they’ve been photo matched by Resolution Photomatching to Game 5.”
“Presented here is a 14K gold Kobe Bryant Team USA Olympic Gold Medalist ring, featuring a depiction of the famed Olympic rings centered on the face, with “LONDON” above and “2012” below. “GOLD MEDALIST” appears around the outer perimeter, with the two words separated on each side by a row of diamonds. One side of the ring reads “BRYANT” and “TEAM USA” in increasingly larger rows of letters. The opposite side displays an image of a basketball player above “USA” as “BASKETBALL” appears at the very top.”
“Renowned sports artist William Zavala’s mixed media “shrine” pays tribute to Kobe Bryant upon his retirement from basketball in 2016. This stunning piece of art has taken on more significance since the tragic passing of Kobe Bryant on January 26, 2020. Beautifully presented in this 39 x 52-inch framed display, Kobe’s image is in full uniform with his hand across his chest and is artfully placed over a larger image of his wife Vanessa, who is depicted with a bright smile across the back. These images are over the back of a yellow Kobe Bryant number 24 Lakers home jersey. Both Kobe and Vanessa Bryant have signed their names on the tackle twill “4” on this stunning piece.”
“Offered here is the very 14K gold 2000 Kobe Bryant Los Angeles Lakers NBA championship ring gifted by Kobe to his mother Pam Bryant. Obviously proud of winning his first NBA Championship a mere three years out of high school, Kobe Bryant magnanimously ordered an additional ring to present to his mother, Pam Bryant.”
