Today, ESPN columnist Rick Reilly released an in-depth article breaking down the possibility of a Kobe Bryant/LeBron James one-on-one match.

Reilly, as he usually does, takes a close look at every possible angle of this playground match-up. He interviews former legends, front office gurus, and current players in the quest to decide who would win.

After examining the game rules and regulations, who do you think would win between the Mamba and the King, and what would be the defining skill that puts one on top of the other?
