The NBA has tried all sorts of things to improve it’s All-Star Weekend; from it’s failed attempt at the game of H-O-R-S-E to its outrageous histrionics in the slam dunk competition. But what it hasn’t tried yet is a simple game of 1-on-1.
Kyrie Irving has recently challenged Kobe Bryant to a game of 1-on-1 for $50,000. The winner gets to have their money donated to their own favorite charity.
Kyrie: “This is not a high school kid going, Kobe, Kobe, Oh my God! " He thinks he's talking to a high school kid."
Kobe: "You just came out of high school, kid!"
Kyrie: "You're going to have to guard, you're not going to lock me up. You think you’re playing Little Bow-Wow?”
Kobe: "Your about the same size. You're going to need a pick to get me off you, sonny.
Kobe: "Easy money, easy money.”
