I’m hoping we can all agree that both sports pale in comparison to the brutality of a good Batman Vs Daredevil thread.

BWAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Co-signed on the easiest sport to access. You need a ball, sometimes not even that (rolled up socks and kicked them),

Second - it's the most globalized sport around. Every nation has national leagues, that play with continental leagues that prepare for the world cup and every...single...team has massive followings, sold-out stadiums, and merchandise

Third - It favors the poor - Speed, agility, running

Basketball requires being immensely tall and powerful (explosive)l to get in the pro leagues

Leave basketball out of this. As for taller players  In a game of street ball or just your average pick up game.   That changed big time.   If you have a versatile game you can easily shutdown taller players.   And being someone who ran track & played football.   I could take hits from bigger players without being knocked down & jumping improved due to track. Definitely,  improved my vertical.  And having a speed factor helped with steals & other aspects of the game.   You really do need excellent awareness of the court & where your other players are to compete.
