LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, and Kevin Durant as Marvel Heroes

Basketball Marvels

We here at NNAR find most of our nerdly pursuits in the realm of comics, video games, movies, etc., but many of us are also avid sports fans. No matter what anyone tells you, being a sports fan who watches all the games, dissects stats, pours over recruiting and scouting reports, and paints up for game day makes you a huge nerd. It is not often that these two nerd-doms collide (I don’t count Madden NFL, et al as normal video games), however, one of those rare crossovers just happened, as ESPN just released ESPN The Magazine‘s NBA Preview Issue, which features comic depictions of LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, and Kevin Durant as Captain America, Ironman, and Thor, respectively. I haven’t had a chance to read the issue yet, so I don’t know whether the theme tracks over into the actual cover feature, but I thought I’d give you the heads up in the mean time, in case you wanted to check it out for yourself.
