Kobe Bryant signed a $40mil deal with Nike back in 2003, but since the death of the basketball star, you can no longer see any Kobe-related products on the site. It was speculated that it was because Nike wanted to limit the re-sell of the star’s merchandise so they wouldn’t be sold at a higher price later, but we’re learning that that’s not true..They simply SOLD OUT of all Kobe related merchandise on the Nike Website.

There is a petition to have the official logo of the NBA changed to a silhouette of Kobe, replacing that of former Lakers player Jerry West.

Lots of sports news today and this one is just weird. A porn website is offering free HD webcams to the KC Chiefs and the SF 49ers players to set up inside their homes during the Superbowl week.
