Kobe Bryant was a media darling with a great stream of endorsement deals until his infidelity screwed that up. He lost the spotlight, and most of his contracts. But scoring 81 points has reminded us that he is a superstar. Will the public forgive him? Will the endorsement deals come back? Will Kobe return to hero status? The public seems to forgive sexual miscues for people that are considered "great." Will companies jump back on the pro-Kobe bandwagon?
I bet we see him in a new commercial within 6 weeks.
