On eve of NBA Celebrity Game, SC6’s Michael and Jemele reveal dream Marvel hoops roster

SC6 anchors Michael Smith and Jemele Hill are headed to New Orleans for NBA All-Star weekend. In addition to anchoring Friday’s edition of #TheSix from NOLA, Smith and Hill will serve as coaches for the Celebrity Game airing Friday, Feb. 17 (ESPN, 7 p.m. ET). Before heading to the Big Easy, the duo had some fun explaining how they would build their teams if Marvel heroes were on the roster (video above). Both are huge fans of comic book super heroes and often wear t-shirts depicting characters from the genre. (Disney owns both ESPN and Marvel.)

Hill will coach the East with a roster that includes Win Butler, Nick Cannon, Jason Williams, Lindsay Whalen, Marc Lasry and Kris Wu. Smith will coach the West with a roster that includes Andy Grammer, Master P, Romeo Miller, Candace Parker, Mark Cuban and Baron Davis. Full rosters here.
