in re 10, I generally love basketball photos where it's all dark in the background and there's one bright flash

There are plenty of classic photos that aren't great as pics but are classic nonetheless.

yeah there's a big difference (at least to me) between capturing an awesome physical feat, and taking a great basketball photo

imo

the lighting for these old games looks like it was terrible for basketball but great for photography

Better their ankles than their knees.

Didn't know that Don Nelson was the inspiration for Chris Mullin's haircut.

Speaking of Don, his free throw technique deserves a place here:

I hate to say it, but a lot of these publicity stills and dunk contest shots just don't do it for me as classic basketball photos. Game time is where classic hoops happens.

idk man, that Clyde shot is next level.
