Adidas vs. Nike

Adidas and Nike battle eachother out in most sports, but the rivalry between their endorsed basketball athletes is a great matchup. First off, here's the Nike squad. And the Adidas squad is below.

Here's the lineups:

Chancey Billups
Gilbert Arenas
Tracy McGrady
Kevin Garnett
Tim Duncan

Nike (best of all their sponsored players)
Steve Nash
Kobe Bryant
LeBron James
Amare Stoudemire
Jermaine O'Neal

I agree with the Houston Chronicle's Jonathan Feigen's breakdown of the matchup.
For Adidas, you've got the It Takes Five five -- Chauncey Billups, Gilbert Arenas, Tracy McGrady, Kevin Garnett and Tim Duncan.

For Nike, you have to choose five from the guys walking around the airport tarmac. We'll go with Steve Nash, Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Jermaine O'Neal and Amare Stoudemire.

Tough call. Nash is incomparable, but on a team like this, Billups' catch-and-shoot talent makes him close. Kobe gets the edge on anyone, but Arenas is right there. Frontcourt, however goes to Adidas.

So who wins? If you have to double Duncan, McGrady or Garnett, those backcourt shooters will kill you.

So I'll go with Adidas based on the one thing that doesn't show up in either commercial -- passing.
