Whose GQ Cover Is Better: LeBron or Dwyane's?

LeBron James is the cover boy for the all-important September issue of GQ, and in the interview, he has some perplexing things to say about Cleveland. Namely, that growing up in nearby Akron, he kind of hated Cleveland, but he's open to the idea of one day returning to the Cavs. It doesn't seem like anyone has gotten a hold of the full story and is just quoting the online preview, so there's nothing interesting said about Miami per se. So in the meantime, we have to wonder who makes a better GQ cover boy: LeBron or Dwyane?

Yeah, it's official. The Miami Heat now have the most "GQ motherfucker" starting lineup in history. Sorry, Chris Bosh, maybe they'll let you on the cover of Details someday.

Dwyane Wade appeared on the November 2006 cover a bit more of a beefcake, with sweat dripping down his chest. It was maybe one of the few times in history when straight dudes could buy a fashion mag with a shirtless, sweaty guy on the cover and not feel a bit insecure. Meanwhile, LeBron's second stint (here's his first) on the gentlemen's style rag shows him as more of a suited-up dandy. Of course, LeBron's cover also features his ego, with him pointing to his own bicep. So which is, uh, better?

It's a close call, but at the end of the day, we're going to have to give it to Pat Riley, Alonzo Mourning, and Tim Hardaway:
