ESPN NBA Preview Marvel Covers: Carlos Boozer As 'The Red Hulk'

New, 1 comment

The new issue of ESPN The Magazine, its NBA preview issue, (site costs $$$) has 30 different cover designs -- one for each team, featuring a player (or more) from the team as a Marvel Comics superhero.

Here's the Bulls cover, which gets your attention right away. It's VERY red:

It shows (as you can clearly see) Carlos Boozer as "The Red Hulk." Of course, as the copy at the bottom notes, he'll have to come back from injury first before playing the superhero role for the Bulls; that may not be until early December. The cover also shows Derrick Rose as... Derrick Rose. Rose's superheroness as a basketball player is apparently enough for ESPN.

You can read more about the covers at this ESPN link and our sister site, SB Nation Atlanta, has more about some of the superhero roles played by various NBAers.
