The treasure of Kobe Bryant memorabilia found in an abandoned storage locker have been returned to the NBA star’s family, TMZ Sports has learned. We broke the story… someone recently won an auction for an abandoned locker in Los Angeles – like a scene from “Storage Wars” – that contained everything from Kobe Bryant shoes to jerseys and even a mink coat of a photo shoot. In total, there were 35 pairs of Lakers shoes, jerseys, training gear, a Lakers full access badge that said “Mamba,” tax documents and more. The buyer ended up selling the items to the “Storage Wars” star René Nezhoda for about $ 13,000… and the original plan was to make a fortune on the open market. But, we are told Vanessa Bryant learned of the auction’s existence and believed the items belonged to the Bryant family – so his representatives contacted René before he put them up for sale in hopes of making a deal. We spoke with René who told us: “Everything has been settled. A number of personal items, used items and paperwork were sold directly to the Bryant family. “ René wouldn’t tell us the selling price due to the terms of the deal – but sources close to the deal say it wasn’t about making a profit, but returning the items to the family of fair manner. That said, René was able to keep some of the items that were NOT worn by Kobe – cool shoes and shirts… and he plans to sell them for profit.
