Title: Impressions of Greatness: Lebron James | Limited Edition 50 | ALMOST SOLD OUT
The painting was styled in impressionism to reflect the classic style Lebron approaches to the game of basketball. Already a superstar of recognized athleticism, Lebron is a rare player who strives to make his team better in the traditions of Larry Bird, Magic Johnson and the icon of Michael Jordan. This artwork celebrates a Lebron patented dunk with the air around him electrified in the impressionist's tradition.
Commonly nicknamed "King James" and "The Chosen One", the Akron, Ohio-born James was highly promoted in the national media as a future NBA star while still in high school, and was named Ohio's "Mr. Basketball" three times. At the age of 18, he was selected with the first overall pick in the 2003 NBA Draft by the Cavaliers. Before his NBA debut, James signed an unprecedented US$90 million shoe contract with Nike. He has since set numerous youngest player records. Some achievements to date in a young and promising career.
