Top 15 Basketball Posters… So Far

As an athlete you know you’ve made it the big show when you’ve been put on a poster.  It means that thousands of your fans will be able to put you up on their walls and pledge their love and allegiance to you (for how long? well, that depends on the person and athlete).

In basketball, they have a saying “You’ve been posterized!” usually that means after a great dunk or a great play the defender has become the victim of what might hang on someone’s wall one day.  The following basketball posters are some of people who have been posterized, some are just funny, others are just classics.  Without further ado… The Top 15  Basketball Posters ever printed… so far!

As a Kidd fan growing up - this by far was my favorite poster of him - annd as an added bonus he's doing "Blue Steel" from Zoolander.
