ESPN NBA Preview Marvel Covers: LeBron James As Spider-Man....Kinda

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 cover, which of course doesn't give the Cavaliers much love at all:

The cover is similar to a Spider-Man cover from 1967 when it was famously used to depict Peter Parker leaving his Spidey-Suit behind. The parallels, of course, are similar to the events of this past summer. Even so, the Cavaliers are more than LeBron, even if it takes ESPN a while to realize it.
