I got the inspiration to create this painting from a segment on ESPN First Take when Julius Erving joined Stephen A. Smith and Skip Bayless to discuss who he has as his top-5 NBA players of all time which omits Michael Jordan.

As a basketball fan initially I was shocked by his list cause to me Michael Jordan is the greatest of all time in my book. But the more I listened to his reasoning I realized that we all make emotional choices based on who we grow up watching, so there’s really no one way of determining who the Greatest Basketball Player of All Time is, the only real GOAT is a real GOAT, like the one in the background 🙂
