NBA players love to compare themselves to superheroes. Kobe thinks he’s Batman. Shaq thinks he’s Superman, even has a tattoo of the Superman logo. And we all remember Dwight donning the red cape for the slam dunk contest. It’s only appropriate that NBA and Marvel join forces to create apparel. via Associated Press
