Marvel at Golden State’s NBA Avengers

Tweet If you could use an analogy to describe the superficial analog between the Warriors signing of Kevin Durant and the Miami Heat acquiring the services of LeBron James six years ago, it would be the film strategy for rolling out DC’s Justice League vs. Marvel’s Avengers.
