The Sports Illustrated Extra Mustard site is always good for some fantastic swirling of pop culture and sports, and today’s post of a painting depicting George Washington throwing down a slamma-jamma on North Korean supreme lord, Kim Jong-un, is no exception.
Is it the teeth?
The whole idea for this masterpiece of brush-stroke came from a Reddit user, who wanted to see some more “art” in his feed.
As seen in the post:
There is not nearly enough art depicting our country’s Founders playing basketball, a game which was not invented until 100 years after the final colony ratified the Constitution. I want this art…
I haven’t quite decided on content, but I’m thinking either a team of Founding Fathers versus international enemies (think Kim Jong Eun — a real basketball fan) or versus a team of my least favorite players (think Andray Blatche). The game should probably take place in Philadelphia’s basketball arena.
This is a strange but serious request.
I’ll give it strange…but serious?
Perhaps this can be a new backdrop for the next generation of NBA Jam video games…Presidential Boomshakalaka!
