What's Better: Round 1: Match 5 (Redick v Riddick)

As we pass the 1/2 way point of the first round, there are still some interesting challenges to go.

Today's battle is anyone's guess. In one corner we have a former Duke star (now with the Orlando Magic). In the other corner, we have a science-fiction extravaganza with Vin Diesel and Judi Dench (no, that's not a typo).

Sooooooooo...What's Better?:

J.J. Redick or The Chronicles of Riddick?

I suspect this one will turn into a referendum on whether this site attacts more Duke Luvas or Duke Hataz.

I'm solidly in the former camp, but since I may need to construct an argument for the latter that goes beyond, "Hey Vin Diesel couldn't drop two quarters and a copper on UT in his wildest dream" I'll try the old "if things were reversed" argument.

Hmmmm. Let's see, if Vin Diesel were the starting shooting guard on Duke, they may actually struggle to win the ACC tournament. If J.J. Redick were the star of The Chronicles of Riddick, it may actually have been a better movie.

Yeah, the recent DUI keeps this from being a rout, but I still give the edge to Redick even if he has the same number of national championships (and one less Oscar) to his name as Judi Dench.
