Kobe Bryant and Danny Granger meet in a battle to the death. Well, not really, but we have a parody video that features each NBA star, and they are both hilarious. 

The good people over at The Basketball Jones featured both of the following videos and asked their fans to sound off on the better one. 

I submit that this is like claiming what the best part of an Oreo cookie is, or which Kate Upton photo is your favorite. 

These are questions that have no answers, and you will see that these videos also fall into that realm. 

First up is an homage to the downfall of Kobe Bryant. 

"Somebody That I Used to Know" by Gotye is used as the backdrop to Kobe Bryant becoming human. Sort of like Peter Parker in Spider-Man 2 when he gave up all of his powers. 

Best lyrics

Just drive the lane and dump it off to either Pau or Bynum.
Those two guys are really tall
And when you keep it for yourself we never score enough.

The second one is harder hitting, but no less funny.

(Warning: This song contains explicit lyrics.)

Danny Granger gets called out in a near-perfect Mystikal impersonation. The best lines can be found from the SortsSports.com YouTube link where the lyrics are housed. 

The choice is yours, but I know exactly where my heart lies.  

If I had my vote, I would go with the Kobe Bryant video. It's the perfect blend of sadness and sass for Lakers fans who are in so much pain right now. 

Yes, this Kobe is an impostor, and he needs to leave. 

The comedy in the video is perfect. It even calls for Kobe to pass to Steve Blake or Ramon Sessions, despite the fact that they "can't shoot."

Every Lakers fan will tell you that the team has lost its swagger, even the Black Mamba.
