What does Batman villain Bane have to do with the NBA? Allow me to explain.
I’m one of the biggest Batman fans possible, and Christopher Nolan’s trilogy was akin to a Bible to me.
In particular, I was enthralled by Tom Hardy’s Bane in The Dark Knight Rises, as were many others. From his beating the living daylights out of Batman in a manner that resembled the Jordan-Drexler "rivalry" of 1992, to his smooth destruction of a CIA plane, there’s really nothing the man did that wasn’t stylish and just purely dripping with badassery. A lot of the phrases he used throughout the movie have become a part of my daily life.
Another thing that’s a part of my daily life, as with so many others on this site, is basketball.
So, I decided to take a stab at linking the two, and well, here we are.
And here...we…go (yes, I love the Joker as well. Sue me).
