Kobe Bryant in legal battles with mom over the auctioning of his personal mementos.

According to court filings, Pamela Bryant struck a deal with Goldin Auctions in Berlin and received $450,000 up front which she intended to use for a new home in Nevada
Goldin Auctions of West Berlin wants to sell over 100 items from the Los Angeles Lakers' pro career and his days as a high school player in suburban Philadelphia. The keepsakes — including uniforms, rings and trophies — would be offered on consignment for Pamela Bryant, the athlete's mother.

Well, Kobe Bryant is not taking this lightly as he is currently involved in a court battle to try to stop his mother from auctioning off his personal mementos worth upwards of $1.5 million from his high school days in Pennsylvania and his early years with the Los Angeles Lakers.
A New Jersey auction house filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Camden on Thursday for the right to sell the items after the NBA star's lawyers wrote the firm telling it to cancel a planned June auction.
The question here-does his mom have the right to sell off his old items or is Kobe being just a little over dramatic.
