LeBron James vs. Charles Barkley



So I'm sure you've heard about the little spat between LeBron James and Charles Barkley by now, AND I'm sure you've seen the new Nike LeBron "Chalk" commercial. Soooo, rather than talk about the war of words, or discuss who was better on the court, I wanna talk about which Nike Commercial, from LeBron and Sir Charles is the best. I'll let yall decide. Check out the commercials, refresh your memories, analyze, critique, factor in EVERYthing...and vote!

(If you are under the age of 18, please do not vote, because have NO IDEA how tight the Barkley 'Godzilla' commercial was when it came out!)



LeBron James "Chalk"


Charles Barkley "Godzilla"


LeBron James "Pressure"
(NOTE: This one aired the commercial break BEFORE tip-off of LeBron's debut against the Kings IN Sacramento. that's GOTTA be extra points.)


Charles Barkley "I am Not a Role Model"








Which is the BEST Nike Commercial?

Unique angle on this. When you compare things from the past to the present, you have to keep in mind the significance of the past event. Barkley was the only other "Jordan" for Nike at that time so his commercials are the foundation of James' so you gotta give props to Sir Charles.

But if you compare concept to concept, both of Leborn's commercials smoke Barkley's. I never liked "roll model" and I thought Godzilla had more D.

And CB really wouldn't have had a chance if you compared any of his with "The James Family" ones. Smooth doing a slow-mo high drive with Summer Madness in the background? It's a wrap.
