ALL ABOUT THE MONEY? CNBC's Jane Wells on Thursday spoke with Lakers G Kobe Bryant about his new Kobe Elite 9 sneaker and his other endorsements. Wells asked about Bryant's endorsement of Turkish Airlines "which seems an odd fit" and said to Bryant, "Is it just the money?" Bryant: "Turkish Airlines wants to do some pretty innovative things in terms of how they provide service for their customers." Bryant said before signing with them, "We did our research and you really track well here in Turkey and it really makes sense in terms of how you grew up and the world kind of being a smaller place for you because you've traveled abroad and kind of have that influence" ("Street Signs," CNBC, 12/5).
