Pamela Bryant trying to sell son's gear

The Los Angeles Lakers basketball star Kobe Bryant has taken his mother to court to stop her selling mementos from his high school days and early professional career.

Bryant is in a court battle over whether hundreds of items can be auctioned off.

Pamela Bryant says her son told her the memorabilia was hers and she arranged earlier this year to auction it off through an auction house and received a half a million dollars in advance.

Bryant was drafted into the NBA directly out of high school.

His high school school uniforms are among more than 50 items listed for June auction.
