A search for Kobe-branded products on the footwear maker's website took users to an obituary page for the player.

Bryant, 41, was one of nine people killed on Sunday when the helicopter they were travelling in crashed in Calabasas, California. His 13-year-old daughter, Gianna, also was among those who perished.
