Kobe Bryant knows who would win a game of 1-on-1 between himself and LeBron James.
While making an appearance Saturday at the London School of Basketball, Kobe was asked who would win in a head-to-head battle.
His quick response to the question drew cheers from the crowd, "I'd win, I'd win. That's what I do. 1-on-1 is; that's easy for me, you know."
Kobe's comments are hardly surprising and have yet to draw a response from LeBron, who has kept quiet in recent days after the fallout of his comments to CNN's Soledad O'Brien.
With the Heat's exhibition debut set for Tuesday, LeBron is certain to be asked about Kobe's remarks and should have an interesting response.
Meanwhile, Carmelo Anthony is still in Denver as trade talks appear to have died down, for the moment at least.
With preseason games getting under way this week, here's a closer look at the biggest stories around the NBA.
