Why Batman Beats Superman in the NBA

The world we live in always presents us with choices. There are individual rivalries that present different sides which we all stand on, and will be quick to tell everyone why one particular side is much better than the other. The examples are endless, Tiger Woods vs. Phil Mickelson, Magic Johnson vs. Larry Bird, Tom Brady vs. Peyton Manning, and of course Kobe vs. LeBron. However, the rivalries extend far beyond the reaches of reality and stretch into the world of imagination. Perhaps the most popular of these fictional rivalries is the constant debate regarding Batman and Superman.

Both are fictional characters that everybody in America is familiar with, and many of us have a personal preference on which one we side with. Unlike great rivalries between heroes and villains, the quarrel between these two super heroes is strange because both stand for good and against evil, they just approach their enemies differently. This is very similar to the great debate regarding Kobe Bryant and LeBron James, and we saw a clear connection between both NBA players and one of the above mentioned super heroes.

When comparing the NBA debate to the super hero debate it is quite simple which two individuals should be paired together. LeBron James is a physical anomaly, a combination of brute strength and pure bodily dominance that is unlike anything we have seen before. Kobe Bryant has a regular sized physique and was not given outrageous physical gifts, but has propelled himself to legendary status using his wit, mind, and willingness to adapt to his surroundings. In this situation Bryant is the clear Batman representation while James will send Dwight Howard to the bench and don the Superman cape.

Next: What are the differences between the two?
