Petition to NIKE

Bring Back Nike Kobes

Recently it’s come to our attention that the deal between Nike and the Kobe Bryant estate has expired. As it stands now NIKE will no longer be producing Kobe Bryant sneakers. From what we understand there’s been a major disconnect between Vanessa Bryant / the Kobe Bryant estate and executives at Nike to sign a longer-term deal that would allow more of Kobe‘s supporters to enjoy the shoes that he’s made so legendary. In light of recent events I find it necessary to voice our dissatisfaction with the fact that a deal could not be agreed upon. Vanessa was quoted as saying, “My hope will always be to allow Kobe's fans to get and wear his products. I will continue to fight for that. Kobe's products sell out in seconds. That says everything. "I was hoping to forge a lifelong partnership with Nike that reflects my husband's legacy. We will always do everything we can to honor Kobe and Gigi's legacies. That will never change." It was speculated that Vanessa was dissatisfied with the lack of availability for Kobe’s products as well as the lack of compensation offered compared to Jordan and LeBron. We are fully supportive of Vanessa Bryant and the estate’s wishes. It is absolutely ridiculous that Nike could not find a way to extend the contract. Kobe sneakers are the premier choice of athletes on every level of competition. This petition represents our dissatisfaction with Nike. We urge you to sign the petition and let Nike know that we need the Nike Kobe contract extended immediately. Please join the movement and honor the late great Kobe “Bean” Bryant.

Petition to 2K Games, Ronnie 2k

Make Kobe and Gigi Bryant the cover athlete for NBA 2K21

On January 26, 2020, a Sikorsky S-76B helicopter crashed in Calabasas, California, around 30 miles (48 kilometres) northwest of downtown Los Angeles, while on route from John Wayne Airportto Camarillo Airport. Nine people were on board, including retired NBA basketball player Kobe Bryant, who is widely regarded as one of the greatest players of all time, his 13-year-old daughter Gianna, baseball coach John Altobelli, five other passengers, and the pilot. Everyone on the helicopter was killed.  Kobe has changed the game of basketball I’m so many ways. His 81 point game against the Raptors is the second most points ever scored in a NBA game! He was a MVP (most valuable player) in 2008. A 5 TIME NBA champion. 2 time Finals MVP. And a 18 time all star all while sticking to his favorite childhood team, the Los Angeles Lakers before retiring with a 60 point game on his last game as a NBA player. Kobe Bryant died way to soon and had so many more great years ahead of him he had 2 daughters now leaving 1 as of Gianna’s death. Kobe was loved by so many people as well as all time NBA greats. Kobe’s death reached #1 trending on that date with many people talking about the tragic accident such as, LeBron James, Kyrie Irving, Michael Jordan, and Stephen Curry. His death got so big that players were taking tribute to Kobe by letting the 24 second clock run out. And a 8 second behind the court violation (8 and 24 were both Kobe’s numbers.) Kobe has been seen on many 2K covers such as, NBA 2K9 and  NBA 2K17. In conclusion, Kobe and his daughter deserves as much love as he could possibly get for everything they  had offered to this world. Gianna was planning on playing in the WNBA (women’s basketball.) Plus, with all the pain that is taking place in the world at the moment, we need to spread love towards Kobe Bryant, his daughter, and everyone who died in that plane crash on that very terrible day.
