Kevin Ware, Kobe Bryant Bet: Louisville Guard Returned To Basketball First, Wins (VIDEO)

Kevin Ware beat Kobe Bryant.

The Louisville guard -- who suffered a gruesome leg injury during the 2013 NCAA Tournament -- told ESPN in a recent interview that made a bet with Bryant on who would return to the hardwood first from their injuries. The five-time NBA champion suffered a torn Achilles' tendon a few weeks after Ware broke his leg.

Ware saw his first action with the Louisville basketball team since his injury last week in an exhibition game against Pikeville. Meanwhile, Kobe hasn't announced a timetable for his return.

"We actually made a bet. Whoever comes back first got to come to each others' game. So I have to get in touch with him against so he can make it to a game," said Ware.
