To coincide with SI's "Where Are They Now" issue, we reached out to the screenwriters responsible for six canonical sports films and asked them to create imagined WATN stories about their iconic characters. Those stories went up last week; whether or not you enjoyed them largely depended on your enthusiasm for forward-looking sports movie fan fiction. But whatever your feelings on the articles themselves, it was impossible to find fault with the slick and stylistically diverse artwork accompanying each post. Since a "Where Are They Now" story about, say, Buddy from Air Bud might not have compelled every last Mustard visitor to click, I'm reposting all the art here.
Sam Harper on Henry Rowengartner, from Rookie of the Year (1993)

Aaron Mendelsohn on Buddy, from Air Bud 1-5 (1997-2003)
