07:33 PM ET 01.17 | Kobe Bryant settled some questions about his one-on-one capabilities in a recent interview with ESPN The Magazine. Among the topics hit upon in the interview were Bryant's fearlessness as a young player, especially going against Michael Jordan. Bryant said that he would expect a one-on-one game against Jordan to come down to the last few shots. He added that he felt confident in a one-on-one game with LeBron James and Tracy McGrady. If there were any problematic matchups, Bryant said that Kevin Durant might be it. "Kevin Durant is the guy that would give me the most trouble," Bryant told ESPN The Magazine. "With his length and ability to use the dribble, he???d be tough."

Maybe The Rapist is talking about hotel rooms, not basketball courts?

Kobe, if you want people to remember how great you were, you need to stop talking about how great you were.

He is still great...I mean 30 per game on48 percent ain't too shabby

Yes, he's not washed up by any means. What I got from the article was he's talking about in his prime vs. other players in their prime.

He was being interviewed, dude.You're supposed to talk about yourself in an interview.

You either have some humility, or you don't. It's not something that comes and goes.

Do a Tim Duncan interview, and you'll come out with total different results.

QUOTE(#11):

LeBron is so much better than the black garter snake now. LeBron shuts him down at will. Kobe no longer can create his own shot against LBJ and needs picks and screens.

No doubt
