Cover Battle: ESPN The Magazine or GQ

Welcome back to another edition of FishbowlNY’s weekly Cover Battle. This time around we have ESPN The Magazine taking on GQ. For its NBA Preview issue, ESPN featured LeBron James. As Knicks fans, anytime we see James we have to fight the urge to rant about him leaving us with the ultra-selfish Melo and Amar’e “No Knees” Stoudemire. You’ll just have to trust us that we’re not yelling at the top of our lungs right now.

GQ, on the other hand, went with Michael Fassbender. Hanging out on the roof of a car with a vest, sweaty shirt and bracelet and necklace is probably what a typical day in Fassbender’s life is like.

So readers, which cover is better? You can vote, comment, or do both.
