Cover Battle: Sports Illustrated or Inc.

Welcome back to another week of FishbowlNY’s Cover Battle. Today we have Sports Illustrated versus Inc. magazine. SI went with five images of LeBron James for its cover. We like this, but it’s missing something: One of those James’ should be flopping.

Inc. magazine went with some bold type for its latest cover. So bold, in fact, that we are very interested in those “7 traits of true leaders.” If one of them isn’t “Constantly Yell at Idiots,” then we’re doing something wrong.

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