I've always liked this comparison because it's a double comparison that is quite consistent.
Also, James & Nadal are athletically outstanding Vs. Bryant & Federer being technically outstanding.
(of course, this doesn't mean that James & Nadal are technically weak and Bryant & Federer athletically poor)
