Everybody Plays Basketball

The series is simply a portrayal of some of the most iconic and influential figures in human history as if they were very good at basketball. "Everybody Plays Basketball", like any artwork, has one main goal, which is to make the observer feel connected to the art whether it's by admiration, joy, laughter or curiosity.
