L.A. Times: Bryant’s popularity even extends to the animal kingdom.

From a database of more than 465,000 pets insured by Veterinary Pet Insurance (indeed, it’s medical coverage for dogs, cats, birds and exotic domesticated animals), 359 pets are named “Kobe,” making it the 189th-most popular name out of 65,536 pet names across the nation.

Five pets in the database are named “LeBron,” two are named “Yao Ming,” and there’s a “Boston Garnett” along with a “Dirk Nowitzki.”

The most unusual sports name in the pet world, however, might belong to a Yorkshire Terrier that answers to “Kobe Shaq Jackson.”

    I remember he had two doggies … I think they were called Gucci or Chanel?

    can’t recall … they showed a clip of him at home with his daughters during TNT or something, against the Spurs …

    or was it ABC against the ugly green team?

    My chihuahua is named Kobe. He is a sleek, fearless, aggressive little terror. His brother, whom is raised by a friend of mine, is named Yao. I just thought it was funny to see this story. Go Lakers!!!!!!!!!!!!
