In London last week, Lakers guard Kobe Bryant took this question from a reporter: '"Who would normally win in a one-on-one with LeBron?" Before the reporter could even finish the question, Kobe answered it in matter-of-fact fashion: "I would. That's what I do." He later went on to say, "That's easy...I do that in my sleep." Check out his full comments in the video below.
One reason Kobe is so confident is that he heads to a track during the early morning hours to perform speed and conditioning work—key elements of head-to-head hoops. Take a quick glimpse at Kobe going through his on-track workout back in 2007.
We're reserving judgment for now, but we'd love to hear your thoughts on who would win and why.
