Follow @theREELevankern I’m just going to come right out and say it: I’ve always been more of a sucker for Marvel than DC. That said, I know Marvel has had their flukes, but (more attributable to Disney’s bottomless wallet, I’d wager) they’ve always had their formula down; when Iron Man came out in 2009—you could… Read more »

Follow @9pointplay Put the NBA on notice. The future is here, and outcries of “the sky is the limit” are ringing through the air. The six-foot-eleven-inch small forward/point guard/positionless wonder of Athens, Greece is on full display.
