Jump ball: Who could save the day?

By Washington Post editors

The NBA has announced a collaboration with Marvel Entertainment to launch a collection of merchandise featuring team logos alongside Marvel super heroes. The line will include apparel and accessories, with artwork featuring a variety of characters, including Spider-Man, Iron Man and Captain America. The New York Knicks will be one of the first teams involved, and here's an example of how they teamed up with Spidey.

Wizards-Marvel merchandise has not been introduced yet, but possibilities are fun to contemplate.

If you could pick one Marvel super hero to pair with the Wizards, who would it be, and why?

knicks already got spiderman? I guess it would be the invisible woman of the fantastic four because players blow by us as if the wizards aren't even there on defense. If not how about captain america because we are in DC.

The Wizards should get a DC Comics exemption. Some
brims and the ESPN NBA Preview team covers.

@the editors,
It's actually not necessary to dumb down a b-ball blog, or plant vacuous filler, we're fully capable of handling that end of things on our own. I suppose objecting to the resort to crass commercialism would be silly too. Oh, never mind.

Call them looking for OZ. This bunch needs courage, a heart and sometimes a brain.

They are the wizards -- there is only one choice: Dr. Strange.
