Thanks to the realm of the Interwebs, we learn new things about our favorite players and thanks to the folks over at AV Club, we learn something about Kobe Bryant.
During an interview with actor David Walton, we learn that Kobe watched the 2009 teen comedy flick, “Fired Up!” during the Lakers run to the title in 2009:
That is a cult hit, that movie. There’s so many people who’ve seen that movie in double-digits. I did New Girl this past year, Kobe Bryant came to the set and was like, “Yo man, are you Dr. Rick?” And I was like, “Yeah.” He said, “I watched Fired Up! every day before we won the world championship in 2009.” So these athletes are, like, it was the coolest thing in the world thinking about the entire Lakers team watching Fired Up!, this teenage sex comedy before going out on the floor and winning.
So, Kobe was Fired UP!
