NerdMarch: Marvel Joins the NBA

Looks like Marvel's stoked that the NBA lockout ended, so now they can sell these babies.

Marvel NBA Hats

For basketball fans, a shortened NBA season is better than none at all (although for jaded Ohioans like me, none at all would be better just to annoy LeBron James a little more).  So if you like hoops and you like superdudes, now you've got a way to show all your colors with these NBA team hats sporting iconic Marvel characters.

Check out these hats below, available at New Era, and see if you like how they've pared up heroes with teams, or tell us who you'd have picked.  Captain America for the 76ers?  Yeah, that makes sense.  Hulk for the Celtics… well, he's green.  Iron Man for the Lakers?  He is pretty Hollywood. But it looks like Wolverine can't pick a team… which actually makes sense, considering he's on EVERY TEAM.  Then the Hornets get a generic 'everybody' hat – all well and good, but couldn't they get The Swarm?  The guy made of bees?  Oh, wait… he was a Nazi, wasn't he?  Yeah, let's not make Nazi mascots.
