ML Basketball Team


Recommended Posts

Something new and just for fun: Since I am huge Basketball enthusiast and remembered reading the Jim Lee X-Men days of them playing b-ball, I wondered what type of imaginary line-up a collector would have if their Marvel Legends figures could play for a basketball team. (Crazy, yes, but still let's have fun with it)!



Starting Line-Up:

Center: The Hulk (Smart Hulk/ IHC series 1)

Power Forward: Thor (Giant-Man series)

Small Forward: Iron-Man (Modern Version/ series 8)

Shooting Guard: Spider-Man (SMC Snap-Shot Spidey)

Point Guard: Captain America (Face-Off regular)



Luke Cage: PF

Giant-Man: C

Quicksilver: SG

Black Panther: PG

Ms. Marvel/ Warbird: SF


they could play ball against the LCBH or any DC line-up and whip them into submission!!!

This is really funny :)


Just imagine we have Marvel Legends Basketball Team...



C- Giantman (He can do the Hook shot and plays like Yao Ming)

F- She Hulk (stop fouling me!!!)

F- Thor - (with thunder & lightning strike my foes)

G- Iron man (I am already injured)

G- Captain America (I am the Captain Ball here too)





C - Sentinel (box-out!!!)

F - Juggernaut (nothing stops the Juggernaut)

F - Gambit (I am not using my powers)

G - Longshot (when the game is on the line give him the ball)

G - Wolverine (I wont get injured, even if I do I heal)


this is hilarious next we have Marvel Legends Baseball teams, Football teams, Soccer teams and even Cricket teams.

I'm going to base my team on the Idea you can be too tall, if you have a 10 foot rim, galactus will have a hard time getting down that low to rebound


Starting Line-Up:

Center: Apocalypse (BAF)- variable height

Power Forward: Giant-Man (BAF) - variable height

Small Forward: Mr. Fantastic (HLFF)- Variable height

Shooting Guard: Bullseye - always hits his target

Point Guard: Quicksilver - love speedy point guards



PF: Super Skrull - variable height and solid as a rock

C: Hulk (FO)- 7' 8" good enough for me

SG: Longshot - lucky shooter

PG: Psylocke - athletic and can read the defense

SF: Doc Ock - my defensive specialist


Coach: Captain America (FO) - Strategy expert






This is funny(we should do football too, I'll take Juggernaut at RB)

Juggs is more like a FB. I'd put the Rhino in as a RB w/ his combo of speed & power. This is quite fun. We could have a heroes vs villains matchup. I'll bet a dollar that someone from Marvel steals this idea and creates a video game based solely on this premise. You heard it hear first...


I only wish I were high. Sadly, just tired. Working 3rd shift will do that to a fella...

Just when I thought there was nothing worse than the endless amounts of wish lists...


And besides, I would've had all of the telekinetics on my team. Enough with the heavy hitters. Invisible Woman would be the best. It'd be kind of hard to play basketball against an invisible team.

Alright... alright!

Starting Line-Up

C Colossus = Nothing says defense like metal skin?!

F Hercules = dude power is in the job description, he is the prince of power?!

SF Captain America = Point Foward; like Scottie Pippen,and Lebron James... Sounds like cap to me!

SG Mr. Fantastic = Kinda hard to miss a shot when you're 1/16th of an inch away?!

PG Spiderman = Dude makes it happen! And he'd be getting in everyone's ear like Gary Payton!


Juggernaut (C/F) = he would wear down the oppositions starting center and like three of their forwards would foul out!

Blob (C )= As long as he didn't camp in the paint who would get to the basket?

Iron Man (G/F) = He's versatile, crafty and tough...

Punisher (G/F) = He makes his liing on those awe-inspiring shots...

Wolverine (PG) = On intimidation alone, who's willing to drive the lane on him?!

Hawkeye (SG) = The current 3pt shootout champ?

Nightcrawler (PG) = Who needs a no look pass when the PG can just teleport under the basket and then up to the top of the key at will? Easily reseting the offense

Hey, I just came up with the idea because I was bored and was pretty tired f Wish Lists and the usual :I hate Hasbro" stuff ...so yeah, I went nuts and did ML Sports




But for those who followed my crazy outline,at least it gives you something to laugh at until I cna actually find HML 3 instores ...


by the way, the Colossus as John Amaechi is funny, but remember, that it is only ULTIMATE COLOSSUS who is like Amaechi

is there something in the water?


Well, he could have made a list of the top (insert random number) most wanted MLs (that need to be on the team) or maybe a thread about how it's Hasblow's fault the new recruits can't make the cut because of the lack of limberness in their elbows and knees. Don't worry - any light hearted and fun thread will soon be doomed. Just wait - the clock is ticking.
