The Los Angeles Times sent a reporter to one of the recent charity games and one question that she asked a few of the guys in the lockerroom was who they thought would win a one-on-one game between Kobe Bryant and LeBron James. The overwhelming response was Kobe, with Kevin Durant leading that charge. The lone responder to go with LeBron was John Wall.

Not surprising. LeBron is the better player at this stage in their careers, but the biggest flaw in his game is his lack of one-on-one skills. With his size, he should have an advantage in the post, but until we see otherwise, he does not have a post-up game. Kobe, on the other hand, is mostly reliant on his post-up game at this point as his athleticism fades, so that’s where the game would be won.
