Lakers coach says Kobe Bryant is one of Santa's reindeers (Video)

Quick – can you name all of Santa’s reindeers?

There’s Rudolph. And Prancer. And Blitzen and….crap. I’m stuck – you too? No need to be embarrassed as the vast majority of the Los Angeles Lakers struggled to name the reindeer as well.

During a recent practice, ABC7 caught up with members of the team and quizzed them on their childhood Christmas knowledge.

Most failed (and did so quite hard) though head coach Mike D’Antoni had quite the zinger when he was pressed about Santa’s favorite deer, suggesting that Kobe Bryant was one of the loveable nine caribou.

Point guard Jordan Farmer seemed to do the best of the group, running off a pretty solid list of names. Though, when you’re dealing with fellow players *cough* Pau Gasol *cough* who believe there is a reindeer named ‘Rufus’, winning shouldn’t exactly be too difficult.

I’m not sure if Rufus will be in attendance or not, but Pau, Kobe and the rest of the Lakers will hosting LeBron James and the Miami Heat on Christmas day.
