Paul George got a new pit bull puppy and named it after Kobe Bryant.

The Indiana Pacer posted a video on his Instagram with the new pup playing with his daughter, announcing in the caption that the new member of the family is named after the legendary Laker.

George has always idolized Bryant, enough, it seems, to pass his famous title onto his new furry companion. We’ll see if the four-legged Kobe can live up to his two-legged name.
