Jared Dudley spent last season playing for the Wizards, much to the dismay of one Washington fan on Twitter. The fan recently spouted off, letting his followers know that he was confident he could handily beat the veteran in a game of one-on-one.

The challenge was brought to the attention of Dudley himself, who was happy to accept the offer and even put $5,000 on the line. Dudley also is willing to spot his opponent five points in the match, to make it more interesting.

The ultra-confident Wizards fan said the offer put him in the odd position of wanting his team to sign a player he disliked, just so he could have the opportunity to win the cash.

However, here is the thing that this Twitter baller is forgetting: If you are not an NBA player, you have pretty much no chance of beating an NBA player in a game of one-on-one.


The Twitter troll has let us know that he is not, in fact a troll, just a man looking to take on Jared Dudley in a game of one-on-one.

We wish him luck.
