About the project:
"I've watched my first NBA game in 1996. It was game 5 of the Western Conference finals. U could say that I fell in love with the Sonics team and duo of Gary Payton and Shawn Kemp, the original LobCity. with limited access to the games I followed them as much as I could.In 2008, an unfortunate decision was made to move the team from Seattle, breaking the hearts of the fans, who were promised an opposite. The "Bring Back Our Sonics" movement began, with little to none outcome. In recent times, we've heard more and more rumours about possible comeback. So full of hope, thought, I might try to make a concept of an, old school looking, All Star Weekend set in Seattle after the teams comeback."

"An awesome concept by the most bearded Bartosz Banaszczyk, that evolved into time-warping project that explores the possibility of NBA All Star game hosted in Seattle in not so distant future. Thanks to Bartosz being a Sonics fan, we were able to find a vibe of how would it feel like for All Star 2025 there and we digitally took it to the streets. And to jerseys. And to the basketball court of course. Graphic wise we both chose to work on the elements that aren't our typical areas, so it was a pretty fun experiment."
