At the beginning of the season, the art company RareInk announced a new partnership with the NBA on a collection of fine-art prints filtering images of current stars and legends through the lenses of a wildly talented and diverse group of artists. The quality of these prints, which were made available as paper art prints and canvasses, is nothing short of stunning. This Hakeem Olajuwon piece by the artist “KXX” and this Rajon Rondo piece by Caroline Blanchet are among my favorites, but there are tons of incredible ones available.
However, until now, one major flaw with the collection was that there were no Blazers players represented. Today, though, RareInk released a new Clyde Drexler print, created by an artist named Gabz. The image above should speak for itself, but it doesn’t disappoint, and with the holiday season coming up, there’s no reason any Blazers fan (or basketball fan in general) wouldn’t love to have it on their wall. RareInk has also been kind enough to offer up a discount on the Drexler print exclusively for Portland Roundball Society readers: If you order the print between now and this Thursday at midnight, enter the code ROUNDBALLSOCIETY25 and you will get 25 percent off your order. The print sells itself on the internet, but having seen several of the RareInk prints up close, I can tell you that the quality is outstanding, and with this discount, there’s really no excuse not to buy one.
