ShareBullets: John Wall’s Marvel Comic Book Cover

Updated: October 21, 2010

ESPN Insider has a pretty cool feature … Marvel comic book covers for each NBA team. John Wall is naturally featured for the Wizards. It kinda looks like him, but mostly doesn’t. What I’m most curious about is what that shadowy figure in the background is supposed to represent. Gilbert Arenas? Other point guard opponents? I like to think it’s John Calipari. Click here to check out the comic book covers for other teams (again, you must have an ESPN Insider account … sorry) — the cover for the Cavaliers has to be especially annoying to Cleveland fans … and no, it’s not a rendering of Antawn Jamison playing Mr. Glass.


A panel of six NBA scouts are cumulatively picking the Wizards to finish tied with the 76ers for 8th in the East. Evidently one scout believes the Wizards will be 6th in the East, two others think the Wiz will finish 12th.

Hamady N’diaye is as positive as punch as he tries to fight his way onto the Wizards’ roster. With Sean Marks and Adam Morrison being cut today, his chances, along with those of Lester Hudson and Cartier Martin, just got a good deal better. It might all come down to what Ernie Grunfeld values more: the 56th pick or an open 15th roster spot.

Ric Bucher and Chris Broussard debate whether the Orlando Magic should try to trade Vince Carter for Gilbert Arenas.
[ESPN Insider] — here’s an excerpt:

Broussard: “I have to admit that I like that idea — except for one thing: Arenas’ health. If I’m Otis Smith I want to wait until I see Arenas play for a month or two before I pull the trigger.”

Bucher: “Would you like some syrup with that waffle? Every trade is a risk. Unless you can suggest someone else they can and should go get, Arenas is not just a possibility, he’s a necessity.”

It goes on from there with Broussard saying that, “Arenas looks like a troubled, over-the-hill time bomb,” with the disclaimer: “AT THIS MOMENT.”

    I think the shadowy figure in the background is supposed to be the tendrils of smoke from where Wall just was – he’s the Human Torch and moves incredibly fast.

    Oh … good call.

    I clearly have absolutely no knowledge of comic books.

    I like Human Torch as a nickname for Wall. Damn Wade for already using Flash.

    So Gilbert Arenas is a cancer that is going to be awful for John Wall so the team needs to trade him and in return they get a player in Vince Carter that publicly quit on his team in Toronto to force a trade. How is that even logical? It is sports punditry, logic and reason need not apply.

    Not sure where you can buy the John Wall cover …

    And salary cap maneuvering brings a different level of logic that makes it inconvenient to assess players for who they truly are.

    The shadowy figure is someone that he just “burned” (left in the dust).
