Chicago, IL

Invited guests will receive more details.



Posterized is basketball slang used when an offensive player dunks over his opponent in such an aggressive and memorable way that it warrants reproduction into a printed poster. The term was inspired by NBA Hall of Fame inductee Julius “Dr. J” Erving, whose high-flying and almost balletic style of play was considered revolutionary in the 1970s.

Celebrate basketball excellence mashed with the rich history and diverse culture you can only find in Chicago. From art to comedy to food to music to stepping, the city known for its picturesque skyline has so much

to offer natives and explorers alike.

Hosted by All-Stars, World Champions and the next generation of “certified” NBA ballers hailing from Chicagoland,

and social postings.
