NBA-cards-2-940x529

The folks at Mass Appeal put together a great NBA preview earlier this week, in which they identified the rappers and 90's movies that corresponded best with each team. For example, the Thunder are the Lion King because they just can't wait to be king, while Russell Westbrook's redefining of the position, coupled with occasional unwieldiness, draws comparisons to Kanye West.

While one could of course find individual entries to nitpick, the Photoshopped basketball cards are exquisite. [Mass Appeal via Up North Trips]
