Jared Dudley is always watching.

On Monday, a person running a Washington, D.C., sports page boldly proclaimed he could beat the veteran guard, who played for the Wizards in 2015-16, in a game of one-on-one:


On everything I would beat @JaredDudley619 1v1 by the score of 11-6

Another page responded, and it got back to the soon-to-be free agent.

He's ready:

Jared Dudley @JaredDudley619

I'll play you for 5k! Your ball I'll spot you 5pts. If you have a girl bring her so she can see you get embarrassed https://t.co/K3t9tWoQVy

This isn't the first time a player has accepted a challenge that the fan probably didn't expect them to even notice. Trevor Ariza appeared ready to fight a heckler after the Houston Rockets' season ended, but (thankfully) nothing came of it.

Dudley doesn't seem ready to come to blows, but throwing $5,000 on the game—and spotting five points—is no joke.

Here's hoping there's video—if the showdown ever happens. Per the fan, it doesn't look promising:


@SInow I'm not a troll yo. I'm actually tryna play Dudley but he blocked me. He's scared

Only time will tell if these two ever go at it on the court.
