Vanessa Bryant deletes Instagram comment disputing DeMar DeRozan’s Nike deal

It was reported Monday that Bulls All-Star DeMar DeRozan had renewed his contract with Nike to a new four-year deal.
The report first came from The Athletic's Shams Charania, who called DeRozan "the main face of Kobe Bryant's iconic line."
Kobe's wife, Vanessa Bryant, challenged the statement in a now-deleted Instagram comment.
"WRONG. He's not the face of the Kobe line. Nobody is."
DeRozan, who considered Bryant a mentor and a hero, not only fashioned his game after the late legend, but also wears his sneakers exclusively.

In a later comment on Instagram, Vanessa Bryant had more to say on the subject.
"LOVES that he is a Kobe supporter but the caption is wrong. It's misinformation. Only Kobe is the face of the line.”
In February, Vanessa and Nike had agreed to part ways and end Bryant's legendary line before the two sides agreed to continue the partnership a month later in March.
DeRozan has yet to publicly comment on the matter.
