Podcast: Comparing Lakers villains to Marvel ones

Marvel week continues, this time with the biggest villains in the Lakers universe and MCU.

Yesterday, as part of SB Nation’s “Marvel Week,” Anthony Irwin and Sabreena Merchant compared various members of the Lakers to their Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) counterparts. On Friday’s episode of “Can U Dig It?”, a podcast by Silver Screen and Roll, Christian Rivas and his normal co-host Jacob Rude continued the fun by finding which Marvel villains best match up with the Lakers’ own extensive rogues gallery.

As you can probably tell by the featured image above, at least one of our hosts compared Kawhi Leonard to Thanos, but the full list of villains from Lakers history includes (but is not limited to) Doc Rivers, Bill Russell, Danny Ainge, Kendrick Perkins, Paul George, Larry Bird, Paul Pierce, Jim Buss and Rajon Rondo.

Which villains from the MCU did our podcasting heroes compare them to? You’re just going to have to listen to find out.

You can listen to the full episode of “Can U Dig It” below, and to make sure you don’t miss a single one (or any of our other shows), subscribe to the Silver Screen and Roll podcast feed on iTunes, Spotify, Stitcher or Google Podcasts.
