Back on Mamba Day (8/24), Kobe Bryant posted 5 pictures to social media, challenging a prominent athlete or celebrity with each post. Kobe challenged 5 people, including Isaiah Thomas, DeMar DeRozan and Kendrick Lamar, the most noteworthy challenge being tasking Thomas with making the All-NBA First Team.
It was later revealed that the challenges were all part of the Black Mamba's newest shoe line, the Kobe A.D's, of which there are five colorways, hence the 5 challenges.
That didn't matter to some though, as other NBA players such as the Bucks' Giannis Antetokounmpo asked Kobe for their own challenge, and Bryant responded:
Other players, such as the Grizzlies' Ben McLemore, weren't so lucky:
And now, 2014 NBA MVP Kevin Durant has jumped on the bandwagon, and Kobe has given him maybe the hardest challenge of them all
(Please note that this tweet is, in fact, fake and is merely for comedic purposes):
Good luck with that one Kevin.
