Jordan/Lebron is Equivalent to Vegeta/Goku
The Michael Jordan versus Lebron James debate rages on, and is almost exactly equivalent to the Goku versus Vegeta debate. The parallels between the two are nearly endless, including the ultimate answer to the question. So who is better? Lebron or Jordan? Goku or Vegeta?
Let’s start with size. Lebron is six foot eight inches tall and weighs two hundred and fifty plus pounds, while Michael was six foot six and a little over two hundred pounds. There’s no doubt that Lebron is the bigger, stronger athlete. Goku is at least a half foot taller than Vegeta, and more muscular. If you measure Goku and Vegeta in terms of pure output potential, Goku is the more powerful being.
Then there’s the attitude. Everyone likes Lebron because he’s a nice guy, while Jordan garnered a fear based respect. The exact same thing can be said about Goku and Vegeta, respectively. Goku is a team player who has the best interests of everyone involved in mind. Michael Jordan didn’t make his high school varsity team as a freshman. If you’ve seen Michael Jordan fly from the foul line and dunk on anyone unfortunate enough to be in the way, you know he wasn’t cut for a lack of talent. Jordan, like Vegeta, has something of a God complex and a undeniable thirst for power.
Lebron James is a loving family man who has never been in real trouble. There’s isn’t much dirt to dig up on old LBJ. Michael Jordan’s “retirement” was actually a smokescreen for a stint in a rehabilitation program for gambling addicts. Goku was married to Chi-Chi and had a son, while Vegeta was all about himself and preferred to run solo.
Lebron James and Goku are both cool because they are the good guys. Vegeta and Michael Jordan are cool because they’re both obviously evil. In the end, all four are serious badasses. There’s no doubt about that. So in the end, it comes down to preference. Do you prefer the light or the dark side?
Personally, I think Goku was the better overall fighter and had the most potential of anyone in the entire Dragonball universe. That said, I’ll roll with Vegeta all day if given the choice.
