Cover Battle: Sports Illustrated or Mother Jones

Welcome back to another edition of FishbowlNY’s weekly Cover Battle. This round we have Sports Illustrated facing off against Mother Jones. For its latest issue, SI went with a powerful photo of the Spurs’ Kawhi Leonard dunking over the Heat’s Chris “Birdman” Anderson. This cover would be even better if Leonard made the dunk, but he didn’t. What’s so great about missing a dunk? Your FishbowlNY editors do that all the time.

For its July/August issue, Mother Jones went with an illustration that would make an tabloid art director salivate.

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