Kyrie Irving might be fast becoming my favorite Duke player of all-time.
And I’m not a Duke fan.
Irving challenged Kobe Bryant to a game of 1-on-1 for charity ($50,000 donation) next summer and upon hearing this I immediately got so excited it shocked me. Check out the exchange provided by DukeBluePlanet Youtube page

Quick history lesson: I have a sports information internship at Washington & Lee University and as I was walking around to the office I noticed this awesome basketball court. I asked the director of the department about it and it used to be the primary court for the university. He was saying some of the greats in the game played on this very court including Jerry West while he was at West Virginia University. Washington & Lee left the conference after the 1958 season. Pay attention because history could be anywhere.
