Dunk very carefully on these stained glass backboards
Artist Victor Solomon is bringing beauty to basketball with his Literally Balling project, which features backboards made of stained glass and gold and crystal nets hung from gold-plated rims.
The project's website calls the works "an exploration into the aesthetic convergence of historical opulence and our modern day kings of the court."
Each of the the three backboard involved over 100 hours of labor on Solomon's part, but all we can think about is how awesome it would look if LeBron James shattered one of those with a massive dunk.
