Kobe says he could beat LeBron one-on-one 'in my sleep'

It’s the most-asked question by 10-year-olds: Who would win in a one-on-one game between LeBron James and Kobe Bryant? No. 2 most-asked question by 10-year-olds: Who would win in a fight between Jesus and Iron Man? Well, Kobe Bryant was in London on Saturday for the opening of the London School of Basketball, and asked him that very question (No. 1, that is).

“I’d win, I’d win,” Bryant said. “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.”

    Gotta love how the media reworded what Kobe actually said to fuel the flames of the much hyped Lakers Miami matchup. Kobe is the man period. He is riding back-to-back championships so to all you Lebron is king fans out there I say… catch up.
