While helping launch the London School of Basketball, Kobe was asked who would win 1-on-1 between him and LeBron. Thanks to Hoopsfix, we have Mamba’s answer on tape. “I’d win, I’d win,” Kobe said. “That’s what I do. One on one is..that’s easy for me, you know. Playing 1-on-1 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 1-on-1 player. I’d do that in my sleep.”
