Former Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant has been handing out challenges to current NBA players as a means to sell shoes. It’s weird, it’s smart, and it is really something to behold.
Meanwhile, Bryant has issued his latest challenge. This one is for Washington Wizards star point guard John Wall.
That challenge? Make the NBA’s First Team All-Defense.
Wall is an athletic, long guard who led the NBA in steals with 157 and all point guards in blocks with 49. He certainly has the physical tools to be able to do that, but it will be hard to get past mainstays that have been on the all-defensive teams for years.
But it certainly appears that he is up to the challenge.
It could get real fun next year in Washington.
