Three reasons I’d take LeBron James over Sidney Crosby:
1. Crosby has the advantage of playing with another first overall draft pick (goalie Marc-Andre Fleury), and two second overall draft choices (forwards Evegni Malkin and Jordan Staal).
2. Crosby has the edge of being mentored by one of hockey’s all-time great players, Penguins owner Mario Lemieux.
3. While both LeBron and Sid have already been knocked out this year’s postseason, at least LeBron is capable of growing a decent playoff beard.
