In the first matchup of our fantasy one-on-one fiesta featuring the Association’s top scorers on earth, the public voted for King James over youngin Kyrie Irving. Next up it’s the cold-blooded Russell Westbrook taking on the top seeded Black Mamba.
While Kobe’s skill set is optimal for a one-on-one setting, Westbrook’s elite athleticism may be the difference. On the contrary, Westbrook could have trouble with Bryant’s length and footwork inside.
Who takes this maniacal western conference battle? You be the judge. [Updated Bracket]
