Superheroes are all the flavor now, and basketball is in full swing. The NBA is full of superheroes anyway (Steph Curry). Plus Supervillians (Dwight Howard, does anybody like Dwight Howard?). And those conflicted Supermen who can’t decide what side — or team — they are on these days for longer than a season.
This list is entirely superheroes, not villains, even if a few of them trend to the “darker” side of things. No Thanos or Magnetos here. I’d like to say there was a big connection between which hero was chosen for which team, but there wasn’t. Some of them are obvious, some not so much. The reasoning will be explained as we go.
