3 questions that says everything you need to know about a guy. Is he a T or A guy. Is he a dunk or crossover guy. Is he a LeBron or a Kobe fan guy. For those guys that are looking for every stat and argument to determine who is better out of Kobe and LeBron, here’s an infographic that will do nothing for the argument but make LeBron fans feel better as they have 1 more thing to brag about.
The infographic, created by Global Social Media Monitoring company Synthesio, shows the most popular celebrities among China’s social media users who talk hoops across networks such as Sina Weibo (China’s Twitter) and Renren (China’s Facebook). The #1 most popular celebrity that stands king on the list is none other than King James followed by a bunch of singers including Rihanna, Justin Beiber, Lady Gaga, Tyalor Swift and Adele. The next athletes on the list are Kobe at #8 (fitting) and tennis player Rafael Nadal at #10.
As much as China loves basketball, it was no surprise that Tracy McGrady, Gilbert Arenas, Stephon Marbury and Eddy Curry didn’t make the list eventhough they play over there.
