Bryant also issued a test to Antetokounmpo of the Milwaukee Bucks on Sunday. He told Kendrick Lamar to have his record label revolutionize the music program at Centennial High School. In addition to recruiting Kendrick, Bryant also challenged Olympic gold medalist, Allyson Felix and National Basketball Association star Isaiah Thomas. Most notably, he challenged new Cleveland Cavaliers guard Isaiah Thomas to make First Team All-NBA next season and challenged Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman to break the team's single-season interception record.

Sherman, a former Stanford defensive back, is one of the top ball hawks in the National Football League, having recorded 30 in his six seasons with the Seahawks. Bryant issued the dare after Antetokounmpo asked for his own challenge from the 18-time All-Star, who has been issuing challenges to different athletes and music personalities recently.

Another Twitter user asked what Bryan's challenge was for Washington Wizards point guard John Wall. The Black Mamba hopped on Instagram on Thursday (Aug. 24), to urge K. Dot and the rest of TDE to help "revolutionize" and rejuvenate the music program at Centennial High School.

Wall responded, because, well, you don't turn down a challenge from Kobe.

The youngster from Greece is coming off a stunning season in which he became the first player to lead his team in points, rebounds, assists, blocks, and steals, and if he keeps that play up he could be right there in the MVP discussion.
