While back NBA and Marvel joined forces for some pretty epic NBA styled Marvel cover art. Now these two names have joined forces again for some exclusive Marvel styled NBA apparel. Now in most cases these types of shirts would not look too cool. But don’t let the idea fool you. The shirts and caps produced for this collaboration are pretty damn cool.
Just mix Marvel superheroes with your favorite NBA team and you get the point. What’s cool about the shirts is that they have adjusted the looks of the Marvel characters to match the teams. For instance take a look at (krhm) Lakers shirt with Iron Man and the gang wearing Purple and Gold to match the Laker look.
They have also adjusted some tees to match the team’s and character’s styles. I mean Spider Man is a New Yorker so having him representing Knicks in a shirt is given. At the same time the Hulk’s green look fits perfect with the Boston Celtics’ clover green appearance. I’m a Lakers fan but still this one’s probably my favorite tee among all of these. It does remind me of Space Jam movie from back in the day though.
In celebration of the upcoming NBA All Star game, the two brands have put together an All Star cap as well. I guess you could call this one a triple collaboration as it’s produced by the cap giant New Era.

Collaborations are always cool, especially when done well. These items make a nice alternative to the standard Jerseys you wear to the games. I have a feeling this won’t be the last collaboration between NBA and Marvel, so we’ll just have to wait and see what else they will cook up.
