Title: Ready to Launch: Jordan | Limited Edition 50
The painting of Michael Jordan captures the flair and classic expression typical of his powerful dunks. I painted an almost theatrical background filled with streaming stage light and a lively, animated background as if Michael were on-stage performing before an enthralled, approving audience. His physical gifts were equally matched by a competitive intensity that allowed his name to be associated, and not hotly debated, as “the greatest… ever”. Words could not describe his performances although some tried:
» Magic Johnson said, "There's Michael Jordan and then there is the rest of us."
» Larry Bird, following a playoff game where Jordan dropped 63 points on the Boston Celtics in just his second season, described: "God disguised as Michael Jordan”.
A brief listing of his top accomplishments would include the following:
» Rookie of the Year;
» Five-time NBA MVP;
» Six-time NBA champion;
» Six-time NBA Finals MVP; Ten-time All-NBA First Team;
» Nine time NBA All-Defensive First Team;
» Defensive Player of the Year;
» 14-time NBA All-Star;
» Three-time NBA All-Star MVP;
» 50th Anniversary All-Time Team;
» Ten scoring titles -- an NBA record and seven consecutive matching Wilt Chamberlain;
» Retired with the NBA's highest scoring average at 30.1ppg.
