Kobe Bryant and Kevin Ware bet on who'd come back first

Jeff Gross

Kevin Ware says he has won his bet with Kobe Bryant.

Kevin Ware and Kobe Bryant made a bet on who'd come back first from their respective injuries. Ware won. He revealed this to ESPN's Jeff Goodman in a recent interview:

Ware said that since he has made his return, the Lakers superstar would have to attend one of his Louisville Cardinals games.

The guard broke his right leg in horrific fashion at the end of March and saw his first action since then in an exhibition game against Pikeville last Wednesday. He played 10 minutes, scored six points and grabbed four rebounds. Ware's leg is still recovering, though, and he sat out of Louisville's season opener against College of Charleston. It's expected to be a couple of weeks before he sees the floor in a regular season game.

Bryant is still recovering from tearing his Achilles. There is no timetable for his return at this point.
