According to reports from ESPN, the Bryant estate grew increasingly frustrated with the limited availability of his signature products during his retirement and after his tragic death in the January 2020 helicopter crash.
“My hope will always be to allow Kobe’s fans to get and wear his products,” Vanessa Bryant said. “I will continue to fight for that. Kobe’s products sell out in seconds. That says everything.
“I was hoping to forge a lifelong partnership with Nike that reflects my husband’s legacy. We will always do everything we can to honor Kobe and Gigi’s legacies. That will never change.”
