Kobe Bryant's MVP award has become a money machine for NBAStore.com. On Tuesday, the website started selling T-shirts to commemorate the award and set a record for such sales in the first 24 hours, according to SportsBusiness Daily. Sales of Lakers merchandise at the NBA's store in Manhattan and on its retail website are also up triple-digits since the playoffs began in April compared with a year ago, with Bryant merchandise outpacing the sales of any other player, the publication reported.
