After reading ESPN’s article about tomorrow’s crazy showdown of inhumane eating, I had a thought. With all the hype surrounding Kobayashi along with all the hype of this year’s NBA draft, I pose a question. Would you rather see a showdown of Kobayashi vs. Chestnut in a hot dog eating contest in HD, or would you rather a one-on-one game of classic street basketball between the top two picks of Oden and Durant? Personally, I’ve never watched Kobayashi but I can’t help but get caught up in all the excitement that surrounds this little Asian man. I will be tuning in tomorrow to try and catch a glimpse of the “action” or at least some highlights. But when all is said and done, a feud between Durant and Oden would be priceless, especially with such hype surrounding both of these guys. There hasn’t been this much hype on two guys coming out of the draft since LeBron James. I would end up putting my money on Durant, as his speed and agility would overwhelm Oden. When it comes to eating, how about Oden vs. Kobayashi? I wonder….
Who would win one-on-one in a street ball match?
