The offbeat thinking person's basketball blog Negative Dunkalectics has created a series of hoops graphics done entirely in Microsoft Paint. Some entries in the series display impressive paint prowess, while others qualify more for the "so-bad-it's-good" category. Among the stars given the retro portrait treatment are recent Finals MVP Dirk Nowitzki and older legends such as Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Reggie Miller and Chris Mullin. Some of the images comically refer to specific, infamous incidents in NBA history, such as Miller's playoff trash talking.
NBA fandom has always engendered a bit of a nerd component, and this amusing gallery by Negative Dunkalectics is proof! With '90s nostalgia in full swing and lo-fi, 8-bit and other old school renderings all the rage, it seems this series was inevitable.
