Kobe Bryant among Forbes list's highest-paid dead celebrities

Late basketball legend Kobe Bryant is among the Forbes list of Highest-Paid Dead Celebrities of 2020 earning $20 million.
Bryant is in the number six spot, due to income from shoes and apparel, with Nike reportedly raking in around $250 million annually.
In addition to sneakers, the late basketballer's 2018 autobiography, The Mamba Mentality: How I Play sold more than 300,000 copies this year, ten times the number of copies it did in 2019.
Bryant's jersey is also the number two seller, behind Finals MVP LeBron James.
The NBA legend died on January 26 in a helicopter crash.
Michael Jackson still on top
Elsewhere on the list, Michael Jackson is still number one with $48 million in while, the number five earner is Elvis Presley with $23 million.
Elvis' estate lost a lot of money this year because of the COVID pandemic, as his legendary home, Graceland, is a tourist attraction, but it has been hit hard by the shutdowns.
