This year’s NBA All-Star portraits look like Christian rock album covers
Because they’re shot in a studio and we’re used to seeing these players glide balletically about the court, these photos always look somewhat unnatural. This year, the portaits were shot in a softly lit room with light pouring in through a window. Yahoo Sports likened the composition to an R&B album cover, but if you consider the brightly lit window as some very ham-handed symbolism, it looks more like Christian rock to me. Joel Embiid even did a Jesus pose.
