Chadwick:"'Madden 11' because I beatMendonca." Nichols:"'FIFA 11' because I got into soccer after the World Cup." Who's better: Michael Jordan or LeBron James? Mendonca: "MJ. Six rings to none for LeBron." Chadwick:"Jordan. Never saw MJ play but LeBron sucks." Nichols:"Kobe Bryant, but MJ if I had to pick one. LeBron is a trophy chaser."
