The moderators of Reddit’s lively NBA page challenged subscribers to blow basketball fans’ minds with their basketball-centric artwork, likely in preparation of an awesome annual NBA art tradition that we’ve covered before. The results were just as captivating as the sport the works celebrate.

This beauty, titled “Strive for Greatness,” was shared by Reddit user ChinoReckless, who was kind enough to provide a close-up to show his precise stippling, the art of marking with tiny dots. “More patience than talent when it comes to stippling,” ChinoReckless wrote. “… This took about 20 hours and had to restart a couple of times.”
