In June of 2008 the Boston Celtics raised Banner 17. Common knowledge to most, I know. But for me it was something special, I only had enough money to get to one of the games during the entire record breaking playoff run. It’s sad when you think about how they had 14 or so home games. The only game I was able to get tickets to though, Cavs game 7. Anyone following the run to Banner 17 should recall this game. As it featured the spectacular duel of Lebron James and Paul Pierce. They battled back and forth with “anything you can do I can do better” to the tune of 40+ each. It was like watching poetry in motion, and gave me a whole new awe for the game.
Since that game I have felt the need to immortalize the feeling I had while watching “The Duel”. Thus, the poster was born.
It may seem a little…odd…? That I would take something so mundane to heart, but I did. Sorry. Basketball is the only sport I have ever been so passionate about, and while I really kind of suck at it, I truly feel like it brings out the most amazing physical attributes the human body is capable of. Great football is like great Steven Spielberg, great basketball is Kubrick 2001.
Quick note: Did you know that Spielberg’s name is auto corrected in spellcheck? Amazing.
