Kobe Bryant Trash-Talks Kyrie Irving After Turning Down $50,000 Bet for 1-on-1 Game (Video)


Kobe Bryant is a busy man. When he’s not sparking debates over which USA basketball team is the best, he’s training with Team USA for the Olympics. Now, he’s engaging in another war of words –- this time with Kyrie Irving.

The 2012 NBA Rookie of the Year has challenged Bryant to a game of 1-on-1 and even put a $50,000 bet riding on the outcome. The money, of course, would go to charity.

Bryant tried to talk him down, generously offering to knock the bet down to $25,000 and even offering to delay the matchup for another year, but the confident Irving remained undeterred.

Check out the video below to hear the friendly trash talk between the two teammates.
