Kobe Bryant White Out

A crew of Utah Jazz fans has a grand idea to get in the head of the Lakers' Kobe Bryant when he comes to town this weekend.---

It all starts with a photo shoot Bryant did for the Los Angeles Times Magazine, in which each outfit on the alleged rapist was completely white, some of them pretty ridiculous. Bryant later claimed the cheesy shots were a bit "too artsy," but he still enjoyed the experience.

Now some Utah Jazz fans want to make sure Bryant knows how silly he looked in many folks' eyes. They've started a Facebook page called "Kobe the White Pilgrim" that currently has 400 members, and its been growing by leaps and bounds the last couple days. They hope to print up to 20,000 posters of Kobe in his fashionable gear to hold up at the games Saturday and Monday at EnergySolutions Arena to create a "white-out effect" (insert whatever joke you like about Utah's overwhelmingly collective pale complexion right here).

If you're interested in handing out Kobe posters at the game, or simply printing your posters to bring along, check out the White Pilgrim before Saturday's 6 p.m. tip-off.
