LOOK: Arizona's 2014-15 poster is an amazing throwback-style cartoon
This wins Friday.
This is about the coolest thing I've seen all week.
Arizona went throwback with its 2014-15 team poster/schedule, opting to go the caricature route with its players and head coach Sean Miller. It's an absolute home run of a choice and reminds me of a 1996 Chicago Bulls shirt I still own. The video above shows the players' really funny reaction to seeing it for the first time.
Here's the order of the players:
Top row, from left: #5 Stanley Johnson, #21 Brandon Ashley, #3 Craig Victor, #0 Parker Cartwright-Jackson, #24 Elliott Pitts
Middle row, from left: #12 Ryan Anderson, #14 Dusan Ristic, #50 Jacob Hazzard, #44 Trey Mason, #55 Drew Mellon, #20 Kadeem Allen
Bottom row, from left: #23 Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, #35 Kaleb Tarczewski, #1 Gabe York, coach Sean Miller, #4 T.J. McConnell, #31 Matt Korchek
If I'm an assistant, I'm bummed I didn't get in on this sweet art.
It makes sense for Arizona to go so big and inspired ahead of this season. The Wildcats are practically a guarantee to be a consensus top-five preseason team. Sean Miller brought the team a No. 1 seed and Elite Eight berth last season, and this year sees a lot of the talent return, plus the arrival of five-star guard Stanley Johnson.
And by the way, if you're a diehard Zona fan, Sean Miller is signing five of these for a contest.
