Baller's Delight by Mykola31 Baller's Delight by Mykola31
Inspired by:
A Tribe Called Quest - After Hours
Gang Starr - Positivity
Will Smith - Freakin' It
Jurassic 5 - In The Flesh
Little Brother - Flash & Flare

Yeah! For those who didn't know I'm a basketball player and a *huge* NBA fan. Preseason is really crazy, for me it's tougher than waiting for Christmas :D

So there it is. I hope you dig it, especially fellow NBA junkies :D.

hey man just checking out some of your work and think it's awesome man. I run [link] and we're trying to improve our graphics forum. I wanted to ask you to register a name and post some of your work, maybe help out with the graphics area, and possibly do some work. It's the best place to talk about sports, graphics, gaming, etc. around.

Dallas are on a roll this year :D! So are Phoenix tho. When they meet in the playoffs that's gonna be the series to watch, not the Finals. :)

now that i've tried collage a bit more seriously, i can tell this one is dope. i dig the overall use of black color and the random stripes here and there.

:D Thanks man

yeah you know, actually.. Subtle works like this take more time that 'in-your face' works for me cuz..
With this subtleness every detail suddenly has MUCH more weight and meaning..
So I actually spent way more time picking out the background color, and putting down every one of those stripes by hand (which I retried don't even know how many times, then scrapped the whole layer and did it all again), than cutting out the players and making up the composition, which wasn't all that fast either :).

All in all, I'm quite fond of this piece, because it looks easy while it actually isn't. So if I managed to make it look easy then I achieved my goal :).

Now I'm really hoping David Stern will find his mind soon, cuz he really is losing it lately.

The no-fun police, sweatbands fines, and 'zero-tolerance' are giving me heartaches already :D

GO LAKERS!

Thanks man!

To tell the truth I'm not feeling the Lakers and personally Kobe.. In fact I was their fan circa 1999, yet before they won titles with Kobe and Shaq.. I loved watching them play, but after a couple years I got tired.
When Kobe started calling himself Mamba it was over for me :D Yeah, he got skills, but I ain't digging his style at all anymore.

I started liking the Lakers a bit more because of Lamar Odom and Smush Parker. Also - Ronny Turiaf - how tough is he to come back just like that?
One dude I really don't like is Kwame Brown, that's one guy I would've never wanted on my team. Kobe, OK, Kwame - hell no.

Anyway, I can't even say I got just one fave team or player right now. There's too much dopeness around these days :).

yeah, i feel ya! but i've been a longtime fan of the team... even back in the days, the celtics-lakers rivalry always fascinated me... up to now! ahh, the golden age of b-ball... and through all the shit thats happened internally, my heart is still gold and purple...

to tell you the truth, guess i dont have a fav team and player too... just like you, i appreciate the "dopeness" all around... from MJ-Pip, Shaq-Penny, Shaq-Kobe, Shaq-Wade, Steph-KG,Webber-Spree,Houston-Spree, AI, Webber & AI... Bron and... Bron haha :giggle: i just love the game man...

yup, Turiaf, is one hell of a baller and inspiration... :thumbsup:

Yeah I love the 80's Lakers-Celts rivalry, they were so damn competitive.. It seemed as if they had huge fights every game :D It always amuses me watching Kurt Rambis throw punches around :D

I ain't seen this season on TV yet and I already hate the new technicals rule :D Hope they give some slight on that soon, otherwise Sheed and other emotional guys will be morally and mentally killed like that.

No they don't show it here :D
That's ridiculous, I guess the Clippers either played with their bench or are all rusty from the summer LOL.
The Sixers aren't that good as a team anyway, as much as it hurts to admit it :D
