Michael Garcia - July 14, 2012

We're in the brutal dog days of the sports summer, but here's a little something worth a few minutes of your time.

Kyrie Irving is fresh off winning the NBA Rookie of the Year. Irving did that after playing all of 11 games at Duke because of an injury that kept him out most of the year. Despite that, Kyrie was still the overall number one pick by the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Stuff like that is bound to make a guy feel good about his game. Irving is ridiculously talented. And he's also a pretty good actor, remember this Pepsi video as Uncle Drew? So yeah, Irving has all the reason in the world to be a little bit cocky.

So is he nuts challenging Kobe Bryant to a game of one-on-one and putting $50 thousand on the line to the winner's charity? We all know Kobe doesn't think anyone can beat him one-on-one. And after watching this video, I'd say Kobe easily wins the trash talk part. Hopefully they stay true to what's said and actually do play each other.
