Superman, these are your legion of doom of the NBA


Kobe Bryant

Team: Los Angeles Lakers

Code name: Lex Luthor

The buzz: So skilled but also playoff-tested, he knows how to beat any opponent. His championship run last season shows he can direct a team.

Tim Duncan

Team: San Antonio Spurs

Code name: Brainiac

The buzz: He has two league MVP awards and four NBA titles. He’s racked up the experience and knowledge to win big games.

Kevin Garnett

Team: Boston Celtics

Code name: Captain Cold

The buzz: Renowned for his defensive play, KG — when healthy — can place just about any opponent’s hot streak in a deep freeze.

LeBron James

Team: Cleveland Cavaliers

Code name: Toyman

The buzz: GM Danny Ferry restocked the King’s toybox this offseason with Shaquille O’Neal, Jamario Moon and Anthony Parker.

Joe Johnson

Team: Atlanta Hawks

Code name: Magneto

The buzz: Haven’t heard of this guy? He’s the centerpiece of the Hawks’ attack — the guy around whom all of Atlanta’s weapons revolve.

Shaquille O’Neal

Team: Cleveland Cavaliers

Code name: Bizzaro

The buzz: Shaq was nicknamed “Superman” before Dwight Howard, and now O’Neal could become his top Eastern Conference nemesis.

Paul Pierce

Team: Boston Celtics

Code name: Green Goblin

The buzz: Perhaps it’s because Pierce is green with envy, but he compared the Orlando Magic to poodles and his Celts to Rottweilers.

Hedo Turkoglu

Team: Toronto Raptors

Codename: Two-Face

The buzz: Just like former Gotham City District Attorney Harvey Dent, Turk used to crusade for the good guys before changing sides.

Dwyane Wade

Team: Miami Heat

Code name: General Zod

The buzz: General Zod originated on Superman’s home planet of Krypton. His superpowers are always on full display against Howard’s Magic.

Rasheed Wallace

Team: Boston Celtics

Code name: Venom

The buzz: His superpower is actually a super weakness: His high intensity leads to big plays and bouts of frustration.

So Dwight…what’s it gonna be!?
