During tonight's game against the Warriors during the 2nd quarter.

No more Superman, it's now Iron Man and the Avengers.

Dwight needs to get out on the court.

He wouldn't be trying to come up with new nicknames if he was out there playing.

Sonned.

Not a superhero ofcourse, Terry Crews' character in The Expendables made me think of Dwight.

Lakerjones made a great post about this.. I saved it because I thought it was just spot on:
Lakerjones wrote:I still like the Avengers analogy for this current Lakers team. The personnel fit the profiles of the heroes, and this squad is obviously Mitch and the Buss family's revenge (Avengers Assemble!) against Stern and the rest of the owners for vetoing our CP3 trade and also for actually calling us out in the new CBA talks and trying their best to hold us down.

I'd say Steve Nash is Captain America- leader, tactician, not the strongest guy out there but full of heart and courage.

Dwight Howard would be Thor to me. God-like strength and body, relishes the good guy protector role and a total warrior.

I'd say Kobe is the Iron Man, Tony Stark. Sleek, smart, sophisticated, playboy, has all the tools, gadgets, skills and brains to take everyone out - even if they are stronger or quicker. Arguably the best "All Around" super hero of the bunch.

I'd put Pau in the Hawkeye role. It's his skills that kill the opponent. Hawkeye has the deadeye marksmanship. Pau is the most skilled big guy you will find. It's not about hand to hand combat and physical strength - it's about his accuracy and making the most of his specific skills.

Lastly, but not least, Ron Ron is the Hulk! Just think about Ron making that play against OKC, celebrating in classic "Hulk SMASH" mode and whacking Beard in the head. The Hulk is just pure aggro and that's Ron Ron in a nutshell. He's always angry, he just tries to contain it. That's his secret.

Sorry to comic geek out. Obviously I love both comics and the Lakers. Any op to put 'em together? I'll take it.

Thanks Finwë! :bow:

Yeah, I love the Avengers analogy for this loaded Lakers team. No way is D12 Iron Man - that's Kobe all the way. And SMH at some of you putting Gasol as Thor - :man10: You do know that Thor is the Norse God of Thunder and the fiercest warrior in the pantheon? Not to mention that he's built like a tank. Do those attributes really fit spindly, shy away from contact Gasol? Never.

D12 = Thor. He's strong as an ox and he's a total warrior. Fits to a tee.

Gasol would be Hawkeye - a highly skilled hero who would never be the alpha of the team, but can be a deadly marksman for you.

Of course Ron Ron is the Hulk. "Hulk Smash" - elbow right to Harden's noggin!! Yeah!

:man10: ^ Seriously.

None of you nerds seem to know who Thor is if you think Gasol is Thor. Or Wolverine. :man10:

I say swtich Kobe to Hawkeye since he can hit almost anything when it doesn't seem possible and Nash as Captain America since he is the one running the ball and "in charge"

Thor is basically a god, which means who ever is him in basketball, basically needs to be the ideal version of a basketball player.
A deep man, believes that the evil eye can wither, that the heart's blessing can heal, and that love can overcome all odds.

I'm not really into comics, but when Dwight sat in with Billy Mac and Stu during the game he also mentioned something about the Justice League and Kobe being Batman?
