Kobe Bryant says he'd beat LeBron James in one-on-one game

There's probably a less than zero chance that Kobe Bryant and LeBron James will settle the matter of who's the better player with a one-on-one game (ESPN's "The Matchup"), but It's fun to think about. And even more fun to listen to Bryant talk a little trash (via hoopsfix.com).

Bryant: "I'd win, I'd win. "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."

ESPN ... NBA Network ... somebody ... make this happen. Thanking you in advance ...

ALL of the current NBA players act like they are playing with their "playstation" and have NO REAL BASKETBALL SKILLS. I based that fact on what I see the on the NBA level, NO SKILLS. For example, dribbling the basketball is a basic fundamental skill and ALL NBA PLAYERS "carry" the basketball just like they do on playstation which has ruined an entire generation of children who sit in front of a TV and get fat and lazy which is a major cause for juvenile diabetes. Playstation is no replacement for real excercise and physical activity. The NBA will not crack down on improper dribbling because the fans like to see highlights whether or not the player has skills or not. ALL NBA Point Guards should learn how to properly dribble the basketball (i.e., Bob Cousey). Kobe and Lebron both are guilty of "carrying" and "palming" the basketball and the NBA referee's allow them to all the time. In a 1-on-1 game neither player has the skills to compete on the playgrounds around Washington, DC. "Carrying and Palming" the basketball will not be tolerated on the outside basketball courts. Only in the NBA is this legal.

I wouldn't concede defeat so easily Cindy. I think a competition to truly decide the best individual player in the NBA is worth fighting for.
