Los Angeles Laker star Kobe Bryant made a rare appearance in London today to help launch the London School of Basketball-a network of coaches committed to delivering coordinated basketball across London whilst increasing sustainable participation in the sport. Perhaps the biggest thing that was said was his response to a question from a fan about who would win a 1 on 1 between him and superstar Lebron James.
“I’d win, I’d win” he said shaking his head, much to the delight of those in attendance. He continued “That’s what I do. One on one is..that’s easy for me, you know. Playing one on one is how I grew up playing, it’s like my thing. Lebron is more like a Magic Johnson, he’s a great passer and plays an all around game. At the core of me, I’m a one on one player. I’d do that in my sleep.”
Big words from Kobe. Who do you think would win?
