It's probably too much to ask of Kobe Bryant that he only moderately care for "Harry Potter." As it turns out, according to the latest issue of GQ, the Lakers star isn't just a fan -- he's a mega-fan whose involvement runs very, very deep.
He's named at least two of his dogs after characters or spells from the book series, and name-dropped Harry Potter on at least three different episodes of "Jimmy Kimmel Live." Even one of this shoes, the Nike Zoom Kobe VII, is nicknamed the "Invisibility Cloak."
Four years earlier, with his Lakers down 3-1 in the NBA Finals to the Boston Celtics, he brushed aside the uphill battle they faced by noting, "[Harry Potter] had more problems dealing with Voldemort than what we have dealing with the media and the Celtics."
Such a long list prompts another thought just as stunning as all the evidence that's been gathered so far: Just imagine all the things about Kobe's Harry Potter relationship that we don't know.
Keep on being crazy, Kobe.
