Found July 22, 2013 on Next Impulse Sports:
In what has been an ongoing feud for quite some time Kobe Bryant’s mother Pamela, has cashed in on quite the score as she has sold several pieces of rare memorabilia. In the past Kobe has shown his distaste for the subject matter in a tweet, however personally I believe this is a travesty and no one family member should ever exploit the other. Maybe someday they will make up. A house for herself in the mean time seems more important. When u give Give GIVE and they take Take TAKE at wat point do u draw a line in the sand? #hurtbeyondmeasure #gavemenowarning #love? — Kobe Bryant (@kobebryant) May 4, 2013     According to TMZ: The auction ended on Friday night, and Pamela ended up making $450,000 in all, according to TMZ.

Other items included a high school uniform sold for almost $50,000 and a game-worn Lakers jersey for almost $8,000   Here are some of the items sold: Lot of (50) Lakers vs. Hornet...
