But the absolute best part (and The Basketball Jones already pulled out this section) is Kobe going on and on about how good he is at one-on-one.
You versus LeBron? Who wins?
Me. No question. As far as one-on-one, I'm the best to ever do it.
Damn. That's pretty confident.
LeBron is a terrific all-around, five-on-five basketball player who's an all-time great. But I'd 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, he'd be tough.
I always wanted to see you play Tracy McGrady.
I played T-Mac. I cooked him. Roasted him. Wasn't even close. Ask him, he'll 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 couldn't play anymore.
His back bothered him for most of his career.
Well, now you know.
What about Kyrie Irving?
[Huge smile, laugh.] Kyrie's my boy, but he knows he doesn't have anything for me. He doesn't want to see me. But it would be fun. I've 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. They'll tell you. They used to come at me hard but I wasn't having that. I love going one-on-one with someone. That's what I do. I've never lost. It's a whole different game, just to have them right in front of you and be able to do whatever you want.
Kobe: I'm best ever at one-on-one

Who would you most like to play one-on-one, either active or retired?
Jordan. No question.
What would happen?
I’m 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
Why didn't you add that part? haha.

I would love to see like KD/Kobe/Lebron and some others participate in a one-on-one tournament, would be extremely legit.
'Cause I Know What It's Like To Test Fate.
Had My Shoulders Pressed With That Weight.
Stood Up Strong In Spite of That Hate.
