Barcelona or Miami? Which Dream Team Will Leave the Largest Legacy?

The sports of basketball and football (soccer for American readers) are the two most free-flowing and creative sports in the entire world. Both sports exhibit quick developmental tactics that leave more room for moments of real creativity from the players and impressive technical abilities from the coaches. They are the most graceful and mesmerizing of our sports, because they are not clouded with statistics that are less significant than the whole frame of work, which is the production of the entire team.

For the past three years, Pep Guardiola's Barcelona side has captivated the world with their seamless and tantalizing football which has disposed of England's best clubs in crushing fashion and has left their rival Real Madrid in a state of panic and controversy. To their name, they can claim two Champions League trophies and three consecutive La Liga titles.

This past summer, one of the most acclaimed basketball talents of this generation welcomed a player whose talent can only be described by his nickname, King James. Chris Bosh is the underappreciated leg of the tripod that has taken the NBA by storm and threatens to win a title in their first year together. During the playoffs, the Heat have elevated their basketball to a level that cannot be imitated by their opponents. Their defense is fierce and seemingly impenetrable, while their scoring ability is relentless all game.

I have a deep interest in the two sports, and with the extensive viewing time I have of each team in their high stakes games to serve as my reference, I would like to start the obviously unnecessary, but undeniably interesting, comparison between the two juggernaut teams and a final decision on which one of a kind assembly of talent will leave the largest imprint on their sport.
