Bomani Jones Says Kobe Bryant Isn't Going To Forget About Kyrie Irving's Challenge, Injury Or Not

Remember that one-on-one game between Kyrie Irving of our own Cleveland Cavaliers and Kobe Bryant of the Los Angeles Lakers? You know, when Irving, one year removed from being a rookie in the NBA, challenged Bryant, who has won something like 4,000 championships at one level or another? Many felt that game wasn't going down due to the fact that Irving suffered a fractured right hand, but one man asks why.

That man? Bomani Jones. In his latest video on the SB Nation YouTube channel for "Bomani & Jones", he takes a look at what kind of player Bryant is and how he's played throughout his whole career. Bryant has always been a player who will get an injury and then go out and perform as though it never happened. You think Bryant is concerned with the fact that Irving has a hand injury?

No sir - he's not. And while immensely entertaining, the video makes a good point in that Bryant isn't likely to forget. The link is here, and we've got the video embedded after the jump. Be sure to subscribe while you're at it.
