Kobe Interview

Worth the read.

Quote:
Who would you most like to play one-on-one, either active or retired?

Jordan. No question.

What would happen?

Iím not sure, but he would win some and I would win some in a seven-game series. It would probably come down to the last few shots.

You versus LeBron? Who wins?


Me. No question. As far as one-on-one, Iím the best to ever do it.

Damn. Thatís pretty confident.

LeBron is a terrific all-around, five-on-five basketball player whoís an all-time great. But Iíd get him.

Who could get you?

Kevin Durant is the guy that would give me the most trouble. With his length and ability to use the dribble, heíd be tough.

I always wanted to see you play Tracy McGrady.


I played T-Mac. I cooked him. Roasted him. Wasnít even close. Ask him, heíll tell you. When I was about 20, we were in Germany doing some promotional stuff for that other sneaker company and we played basketball every day. We were in the gym all the time. We played three games of one-on-one to 11. I won all three games. One game I won 11-2. After the third game he said he had back spasms and couldnít play anymore.

His back bothered him for most of his career.

Well, now you know.

What about Kyrie Irving?

[Huge smile, laugh.] Kyrieís my boy, but he knows he doesnít have anything for me. He doesnít want to see me. But it would be fun. Iíve beaten a lot of guys one-on-one, like Reggie Miller and Grant Hill. I used to play Caron Butler all the time in practice when he was with the Lakers. When I was a rookie I used to get Nick Van Exel and Eddie Jones. They know. Theyíll tell you. They used to come at me hard but I wasnít having that. I love going one-on-one with someone. Thatís what I do. Iíve never lost. Itís a whole different game, just to have them right in front of you and be able to do whatever you want.

Reggie was a three point shooter and a guy who was probably the best we've ever seen using screens.

A guy like Kobe saying he beat Reggie in a game of 1 on 1 is like me saying I beat some grade 3 kids in a math test.


Beat TMac 3 times in a row and then McGrady refused to play anymore saying his back hurt too much? Yea, I'm sure that happened.

Would not surprise me if the tmac story was true. Tracie is a princess. Kobe's still a tool though.

Re: Kobe Interview

If those two had 3 back to back games, Kobe would have brought it up long ago when everyone was comparing the two and asking them about each other. Kobe ran his mouth all the time back then. Hes not the guy to hold it in until now.

Re: Kobe Interview

You really expect Kobe Bryant to admit he'd lose a one on one game? Lol He's earned the right to say w/e the **** he wants. You call it arrogance, I call it supreme confidence ala Jordan and Bird.

Re: Kobe Interview

I found that interview hilarious. Then again, I didn't take it as seriously as others seem to have.
