Duke alum and reigning rookie of the year Kyrie Irving challenged Kobe to a 1-on-1 game at the Team USA Basketball camp in Las Vegas Nevada. Price tag: $50-Grand for the winner.
Kobe has always believed that any bet on 1-on-1 game is, “Easy Money.”
Kyrie Irving of the Cleveland Cavaliers was named the 2012 Rookie of the Year, beating out another point guard Ricky Rubio of the Minnesota Timberwolves. The ascent has been rapid for the 19-year-old former New Jersey high school player from St. Patrick’s who last year, due to an injury, played just 11 games as a freshman at Duke.
