Aspiring singer-songwriter Breland begins his conversation with The Tennessean by noting that it’s been exactly four minutes since he walked through the front door of his Nashville home after a trip to Indianapolis.

This attention to detail has helped the 26-year-old New Jersey native rise from least-anticipated “My Truck” hitmaker to most-desired status in just under two years. Industry watchers say it takes ten years to achieve overnight success in Nashville. But thanks to his meticulous organization and vision, Breland has already achieved double fame in a quarter of the time.

At a time when the genre must quickly adapt to a plethora of sonic and cultural influences simultaneously sweeping the land, Breland helps direct the onslaught for a seamless transition.

Keep your eyeballs on, folks, because the Spider-Verse takes a number of different artistic directions! When Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse was first announced, people weren’t sure what to think. It focused on Miles Morales but was also animated. But not long after publication Into the Spider-Verse quickly became a fan favorite. Thanks to its stunning graphics, heartwarming story, and cast of quirky characters (Peter Porker! Spider-Man Noir!), the animated film cemented the idea of ​​a Spider-Verse actually existing and having a place in the Spider-Man franchise. Now we know a sequel is coming and it will be titled Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (Part One). Even more exciting? Co-writer and producer Chris Miller said what the art style is Across the Spider-Verse That would be an “artistic opportunity”.

What is the art style Across the Spider-Verse How is it going to be?

The visuals in Into the Spider-Verse were absolutely stunning and the team working on the sequel is excited to share it with the world. In conversation with colliders, filmmaking duo Phil Lord and Chris Miller spoke about the creative process in Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse. miller said:

“It’s, as Phil said, a very ambitious sequel because we didn’t want to just do the same thing over again. And so the idea that we’d go into different dimensions really opened up an artistic opportunity to give each world its own distinct art style and get the folks at ImageWorks to come up with a way to make each dimension feel like it was done by hand drawn by another artist. To see these things develop is breathtaking and real, that’s why we keep going because it’s so hard to get it right.”

One of the visual goals of Into the Spider-Verse was to make the viewer feel like flipping through a comic book, but cinematic. While it was a risk, it was one that paid off as the film won both the Oscar and Golden Globe for Best Animated Feature in 2019. As Bob Persichetti, one of the directors, continues Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, told The Hollywood Reporter: “In a traditional CG rendered film you mimic ‘reality’ but we tried to mimic the feeling of flipping through a comic where you get these really expressive ink drawings but in a cinematic way.”

what is Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse will it be approximately

Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse Miles Morales (voiced by Shameik Moore) will once again star. He teams up with Gwen Stacy/Spider-Gwen (voiced by Hailee Steinfeld) in another dimension to take on a new villain. We can look forward to a whole new cast of Spider-Verse characters, including Spider-Man 2099 (aka Miguel O’Hara), voiced by Oscar Isaac. If the teaser trailer is any indication, the art styles were actually an “artistic opportunity.”

Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse Directed by Joaquim Dos Santos, Kemp Powers and Justin K. Thompson. The screenplay is by Phil Lord, Christopher Miller and David Callaham. The film’s producers include Lord and Miller, as well as Avi Arad, Amy Pascal and Christina Steinberg.

You can watch the full Collider interview below:

Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (Part One) hits theaters on October 7, 2022.

N95, KN95 or KF94? How to find the right Covid mask https://maoriart.net/n95-kn95-or-kf94-how-to-find-the-right-covid-mask/ Sat, 15 Jan 2022 14:29:00 +0000 https://maoriart.net/n95-kn95-or-kf94-how-to-find-the-right-covid-mask/ The rapid spread of the infectious Omicron variant has prompted many people to attempt to upgrade to a higher quality mask.

The rapid spread of the infectious Omicron variant has prompted many people to attempt to upgrade to a higher quality mask. But that is easier said than done.

Anyone who has bought a mask online or in stores has discovered a dizzying array of choices in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors. Knowing which mask to choose and making sure it’s not fake requires the detective skills of a forensic investigator. And once you’ve decided on one, it’s still a gamble; Many people find that they have ordered a mask that is too big or too small for their face, or just doesn’t fit properly.

“Nobody made it easy, that’s for sure,” said Bill Taubner, president of Bona Fide Masks, the exclusive United States distributor for Powecom and Harley KN95 masks sourced from China. “A lot of people end up doing a lot of research.”

Unlike cloth masks, high-quality masks — called the N95, KN95, and KF94 — are made with layers of high-tech filter material that captures at least 94 to 95 percent of the most dangerous particles. Under the microscope, the filters look like dense forests of tangled fibers that capture even the most elusive particles that can bounce around and escape the fibers of cloth masks. High-quality masks also have an electrostatically charged filter that helps attract and trap particles.

At the beginning of the pandemic, high-quality medical masks and respirators were in short supply. The problem now is that there are so many different masks for sale that it’s difficult to know which ones have been tested and certified by government agencies and which ones are fake. Test studies have found that many fake masks don’t even provide the same level of protection as a cloth mask. We asked mask manufacturers, importers, public health officials and independent researchers for advice on choosing a quality mask. Here’s a guide.

Masks come in different shapes and sizes. You will find “cup” style masks, “duckbill” masks and “flat fold” masks. The best mask is the one that fits your face snugly and is comfortable. Order in small quantities first and try different styles to find the best one for your face. Many masks are described as “one size fits all”. But some come in small or larger sizes. “You can’t get the full benefit of a respirator if you put it on and it doesn’t seal your face,” said Nicole Vars McCullough, vice president of personal safety at 3M Company, the largest US manufacturer of N95 masks.

the N95 Respirators are regulated by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), a division of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Almost all N95 masks use head straps – two elastic straps that wrap behind the head. If a mask claiming to be an N95 has ear loops, it is most likely a fake. The CDC has a guide to spotting counterfeit N95s.

the KN95 similar to the N95 but with ear loops and meets Chinese medical mask standards. Some people prefer them because of the comfort and because they come in smaller sizes. While you can find legitimate KN95 masks, the supply chain is riddled with counterfeits and there is little regulation or oversight of the product. A study found that 60 percent of the supply of KN95s in the United States are counterfeit. Read on to learn how to spot them.

the KF94 is a high quality mask that folds flat and is made in Korea. It is specifically designed for the consumer market. The KF stands for “Korean Filter” and the 94 means that it filters 94 percent of the particles. The masks are heavily regulated in Korea, which reduces the risk of counterfeiting. However, some fake masks made in China may be marked KF94, so buyers still need to do their homework.

The mask market is particularly difficult for parents trying to find masks for children. No N95 mask has been approved for children, therefore any mask claiming to be a N95 mask for children is counterfeit. However, N95s are available in S/M sizes which might suit some older children. KN95 and KF94 masks have designs for children. So once you’ve found one, you’ll need to go through the same verification process you would use for an adult mask using the links below.

Large retailers like Home Depot and Lowes typically work directly with manufacturers who are NIOSH accredited or their distributors. So if you find an N95 mask in a large retail store, you can be sure you’re getting the real deal. It’s a good idea to check manufacturers’ websites to see where they sell their products and who their authorized retailers are, said Dr. McCullough. 3M has created a dedicated section on its website to help consumers spot counterfeit masks.

It’s harder to find a reliable mask on Amazon because you’ll see legitimate masks mixed in with fakes, although the differences aren’t always obvious. If you must use Amazon, try shopping directly at local stores from mask manufacturers like 3M or Kimberly-Clark. (You can usually find a link to a manufacturer’s online store just below a product name.)

If you buy a KF94 from Amazon, look carefully at the packaging to make sure it’s made in Korea and has the required marking (see below for more details). Aaron Collins, an engineer who routinely tests masks and is known as a “mask nerd” on YouTube, recommends buying KF94 from Korean beauty importers like Be Healthy or KMact. Once you know the names of some KF94 manufacturers you can try to find their websites to see where they are sold. For example, Happy Life lists its five US distributors on its homepage.

You can sometimes find N95 and KN95 masks for sale directly on a mask manufacturer’s website such as Demetech and Armbrust USA. You can also look for companies that are exclusive distributors of KN95 masks, like Bona Fide Masks. The non-profit website Project N95 is also a reliable place to shop.

Legitimate N95 and KN95 must have specific text stamped on the front of the mask. Although you might find one in a fun color, masks that are printed with fancy patterns or don’t have any text embossed on them are likely fake.

Your N95 should be marked “NIOSH” along with the company name, model and lot number, and what’s called a “TC Approval Number” that you can use to look up the mask in a list of approved masks. The CDC created an infographic to show you the imprint to look for on your N95.

A legitimate KN95 should also have text, including the manufacturer’s name, model, and “GB2626-2019,” which is a reference to a quality control standard approved by the Chinese government.

The KF94 will not be stamped with text, but the box should say “Made in Korea” and include the product name, manufacturer, and retailer name. An expiry date and batch number are also printed on the packaging. (Electrostatic masks all have an expiration date.) If your mask came from a Korean importer, the information on the packaging will be in Korean, but many companies have started creating English-language packaging.

A number of resources have emerged to help people navigate the mask buying process. Project N95 is a non-profit organization known for auditing their mask suppliers. Mr. Collins, the mask nerd, has created a number of lists and resources for mask buyers. You can look at him Twitter feed, his YouTube channel, and a spreadsheet he created of almost 450 different masks and how they performed in his tests.

Mr. Collins is perhaps best known for his list of children’s masks. While there is no approved N95 mask for children in the US, mask manufacturers in China and Korea have developed KN95s and KF94s for children, including some with child-friendly colors and prints. Mr. Collins created a video “Primers for Parents” about finding a quality mask for children that has been viewed more than 100,000 times.

“I had withdrawn from the mask test,” Mr Collins said, noting that he does not receive any compensation for his work. “But I came out of retirement to do the kids video. Unfortunately, the only place I’ve seen a list of test dates is me.”

Wirecutter, a New York Times product reviews site, has a guide for buying quality masks, one for buying masks for children, and a list of 12 warning signs that your mask might be a fake.

It’s not easy, but the CDC has some lists you can use to confirm that a mask has been verified. A note of caution: If you can’t find a specific mask, make sure you’ve looked it up correctly, said Anne Miller, executive director of Project N95. For example, a Gerson N95 mask will not be found under the letter “G”. It’s listed under “L” because the full name of the company that makes it is Louis M. Gerson.

For information on N95 masks, see the CDC’s Alphabetical List of NIOSH-Approved Respirators. You can also look up the TC Approval Number from the Certified Equipment List.

For KN95 masks, you can use two Food and Drug Administration checklists. The FDA created these lists early in the pandemic, when the agency issued an emergency use authorization allowing health workers to use KN95 masks due to a shortage of N95. Now that the N95 supply is adequate, the agency has revoked the permit for these workers, but other people can continue to use KN95. Although the list is now a bit out of date, there’s reassurance that if you find your mask on it, it’s less likely to be counterfeit – with the caveat that there are no longer any official US regulators for any of these companies are. You have to scroll down to find the list and search box.

Use this FDA list to find KN95 masks made in China and this list for KN95 masks made in other countries.

The series is a spin-off of another popular comedy show, applause, which continued the story of Frasier Crane, played by Kelsey Grammer.

Artist Paul LeRoy Gehres works among a wide variety of personalities including LeRoy Picasso, Lucky LeRoy, and Lonesome LeRoy. “LeRoy” is tied to the person referred to in the work, who often depicts celebrities, artists, and political figures.

The prolific artist, 61, is popular at The Factory St. Pete. It’s a fitting location for the artist’s studio, whose work is partially inspired by Andy Warhol, the pop artist who worked at an iconic New York studio called The Factory.

Gehres values ​​the built-in audience at The Factory St. Pete and says the work has received more attention and discussion than ever before.

“You know, it was really good here,” said Gehres.

Gehres prefers to be identified with the pronoun “we” that goes with an alias, LeRoy “King of Art”. The moniker King of Art came at a time when Michael Jackson was King of Pop. There is also a game called LeRoy, which in French le roi and means “the king”.

With the various personalities of the artist come imitations, especially from Warhol. Gehres disguised himself earlier than he and visited the grave of the late artist in Pennsylvania with friends and make art there. Celebrity Warhol-style paintings and prints are made under the nickname LeRoy More Hole.

“More” is a common theme at Gehres. There is an astonishing amount and breadth of work in the artist’s St. Petersburg Studio. A melange of photos, paintings and textiles is layered and attached to a wall. Everywhere you look there are containers of paintings and spray-painted postcards depicting celebrities, local figures, artists, and political figures.

One of the most notable things about Gehres’ work is the close attention it receives to current events and pop culture. The latest headlines are printed on fabric, often about events that happened on the same day.

Kara Behar, founder of The Factory St. Pete, said Gehres was “the epitome of keeping up with the media.”

Gehres viewed work as a form of journalism, a teaching moment called Collecting the Smear Since 1961. Inspiration came from life through the birth of the 24-hour news cycle.

The work makes bold statements, like the installation at The Factory St. Pete, which calls for “Undo whiteness,” inspired by the death of George Floyd. The message presents different sides – Defund the Police and Defend the Police are on a banner. And there are messages in which we ask for forgiveness from controversial political figures.

Gehres said the piece is about love and change.

The basic colored polka dots of the Wonder Bread logo run through the installation and Gehres is wearing a matching t-shirt.

Gehres explained that the outfit is intended to draw attention to the fact that white is not branded, “and people have to say that it is something because that is the change”.

Another green installation addresses climate change and shows pictures of activists like Greta Thunberg. Gehres dressed appropriately for each of the projects.

Including current events in the work arose from thinking about what Warhol would do if he lived today. Gehres’ works include a tribute to the victims of the shooting at Pulse nightclub in Orlando, one that reflects the torture in Abu Ghraib and another that includes images of the US border. These works are not for sale.

Gehres sees this as a duty.

“It’s a Warhol thing,” said Gehres. “It’s hard to take in all of this tragedy and then turn it into art.”

Originally from Pennsylvania, Gehres holds an Associate Degree in Fashion Illustration from The Art Institute of Pittsburgh (1982), a Bachelor of Fine Art from The Cooper Union in New York City (1986), and a Master of Fine Art from Indiana University of Pennsylvania (2006).

Warhol was still alive when Gehres was at The Cooper Union in New York, but the two never met. Gehres was not influenced by Warhol at the time, but focused on photography and filmmaking.

Gehres became “obsessed” with celebrities when Anna Wintour started putting her on the cover of. to put Fashion, around the late 1980s. This inspired Shoe Prints, Gehres’ drawings of famous faces on various shoe models. To date there are thousands of them.

After graduating, Gehres founded an illustration company nicknamed LeRoy “King of Art”. The illustrations appeared in The New York Times, interview and The village voice. Drawings were made to illustrate event lists in The New Yorker.

Gehres’ work has been exhibited worldwide, including at the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh and at the 2011 Pittsburgh Biennial.

Gehres has been designing for the fashion designer Anna Sui for about 10 years. The artist’s design for Sui’s 2004 collection adorns a T-shirt modeled on Naomi Campbell. The design was revived for the Sui Spring 2022 collection.

Gehres moved to St. Petersburg in 2012 to be close to the family. Places where Gehre’s work has been shown on-site include the Morean Arts Center, Woodfield Fine Art, ArtPool, the Tampa Museum of Art, and the Mize Gallery.

Steven Cohen is one of Gehres’ collectors. They met in New York in 1987 when Cohen hired Gehres as an assistant in a design agency.

“I saw this young genius,” he said. Cohen said Gehres always “invents and creates” works of art in between jobs.

For Cohen, Gehres is the “next Warhol” because the work is so conceptual. He owns innumerable works by the artist. He always finds Gehres’ work fresh.

Whether you’re portraying celebrities, artists, or political figures, there are more than a few you need to find on Google, which, according to Cohen Gehres’ way of teaching a lesson.

“The homework is for you to go further,” Cohen said. “It’s very interesting. It’s always this deep meaning.”

Gehres recently made a giant Chanel-style suit out of fabric inherited from Cohen’s late brother and plans to make skirts out of the fabric. A new personality based on Karl Lagerfeld, the longtime designer of Chanel, was adopted.

Michael Lang, co-founder of the Woodstock Music & Art Fair, died on Saturday at the age of 77.

Lang died at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City. According to family spokesman Michael Pagnotta, the cause of death was a rare form of non-Hodgkin lymphoma.

Lang planned the famous 1969 festival together with his partners Artie Kornfeld, Joel Rosenman and John P. Roberts on Max Yasgur’s extensive dairy farm in Bethel, NY , Jimi Hendrix and The Who.

Despite weather issues, late venue changes, and far more than expected visitors, Woodstock’s permissive ethos of “peace and music” persisted, making the festival a pivotal moment in the decade’s countercultural movement.

“Woodstock was a test of whether our generation really believed in each other and in the world we were struggling to create,” Lang wrote in his 2009 book The way to Woodstock. “How would we proceed if we were in charge? Could we live as the peaceful community we envisioned?

Born in Brooklyn, NY, Lang attended New York University briefly before moving to Florida. It was there that he came up with the idea for Woodstock after organizing the Miami Pop Festival in 1968, with Jimi Hendrix as headliner.

“I was amazed at the effect music had on the children,” he said poster in 2009. “I went from John Lee Hooker to Jimi Hendrix and they loved everything … and seeing their faces and the way music somehow changed them really got me going.”

Outstanding in the 1970 Oscar-winning documentation Wood storage, who often rode around the stage area on his motorcycle, Lang became one of the most recognizable faces behind the festival.

In later years he continued to produce events based on the legacy of that original Woodstock, including the Woodstock ’94 and Woodstock ’99 festivals. The latter event, a three-day concert in Rome, NY, was notoriously plagued by widespread violence and reported sexual assault.

In 2019, Lang planned to host Woodstock 50, a reinterpretation of the festival with a variety of artists including Chance the Rapper and Carlos Santana, but the festival was canceled after financial setbacks.

In addition to his wife Tamara, Lang leaves behind the sons Harry and Laszlo and the daughters LariAnn, Shala and Molly.

Camilla’s five-carat emerald-cut diamond with baguettes on the side gets around 1,800 searches a year, according to Google Trends data. Camilla’s Art Deco inspired ring gives the Duchess of Cornwall a sleek and stylish look. The ring formerly belonged to Prince Charles’ grandmother, the Queen Mother, who wore it in the 1980s.

According to Kathryn Money, VP of Strategy and Merchandising at Brilliant Earth, it would have cost roughly £ 78,000.

Prince Charles and Camilla were married at Windsor Guildhall in 2005.

Charlotte White, head of design at Europe’s largest online diamond jeweler 77 Diamonds, spoke exclusively to Express.co.uk about Camilla’s engagement ring and its sentimental value.

Charlotte said, “When Prince Charles dropped to one knee and asked Camilla to marry him in 2005, he did so with a clean, modern, sumptuous diamond engagement ring.

“More reminiscent of the geometric, bold lines of today’s young fashionistas, as opposed to the classic and opulent oval and diamond halo of Princess Diana’s sapphire ring, it was passed down to him from the Queen Mother, who was first pictured, who wore it in the 1980s.

“Although the royal household never revealed its date of creation or the reason for its commissioning, they called it the family heirloom, which suggests a certain depth of history.

“Some speculate that the ring was actually made to celebrate the 1926 birth of Queen Elizabeth II.

“The ring itself is an Art Deco piece and features five carat emerald cut diamonds.

“Emerald cut diamonds are rectangular in shape with cut corners.

DO NOT MISS:

Despite getting married almost 17 years ago, about 150 people search Google for Camilla’s dress every month.

While her wedding attire wasn’t as popular as Meghan Markle or Kate Middleton, on the day of her wedding ceremony with Prince Charles, Camilla actually wore two wedding dresses to celebrate the occasion.

In addition to the civil ceremony, the couple had a religious blessing and formal reception at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor that same day.

This enabled Camilla to change outfits quickly.

First, Camilla wore a cream-colored silk chiffon dress for the civil ceremony.

It had a hem of appliquéd discs made in Switzerland and a matching oyster silk coat created by London-based designers Robinson Valentine.

For the blessing in St. George’s Chapel, she put on another beautiful dress by the same designer.

She wore a light blue chiffon dress with an embroidered light blue and gold coat over it.

Dozens of Cape Cod cultural organizations start the year slightly better funded thanks to recent award announcements from the Arts Foundation of Cape Cod and the Mass Cultural Council.

The Cape Foundation selected 42 cultural nonprofits and artists for a total of $ 77,800 in grants for a variety of programs. Last year a total of $ 51,500 was awarded to 16 organizations.

Executive Director Julie Wake said the help was “critical” not only to the region’s cultural enrichment, but also to “healing, connecting and accessing people of all backgrounds and abilities” during this challenging time.

“It is funding that is needed by an industry that is vital to our economy and that is still facing the negative effects of the pandemic,” she said in a written statement. “We look forward to standing with our fellow arts organizations and artists as we take meaningful steps to address this impact and achieve long-term, sustainable recovery for our sector.”

Michael Bobbitt, executive director of the Mass Cultural Council, put a similar focus on how art can help during the pandemic by announcing a total of $ 148,000 in festival-oriented grants for 99 events across the country. Eight organizations in the Cape and Island Islands received $ 12,000 of this money, with each festival grant increasing from $ 500 to $ 1,500 each year.

For Earl Monroe, genius was in his hips. With basketball in hand, he could keep the defenders locked by his side at bay; the rhythm he was moving to could only be found between his ears, with would-be stoppers to guess the beat. The guards who came before him usually moved in a straight line, purposeful and economical. And then came “The Pearl” who tore up the blueprint and began to scribble his own interpretation.

He would squeeze the ball out with every fascinating spin move and almost trick his defender into falling without losing control. However, that was only half the process. Then there was the act of scoring, each game seemingly never being repeated. He could move, circle, pump and spin the ball. Monroe didn’t need the air to make room, it needed an angle of his choosing, just enough to place the ball on the backboard and magically let it do the rest.

Some have tried to express Monroe’s career as a basketball response to a jazz musician, the ultimate improvisation artist with tremendous and creative abilities. It raises several questions: Do music and basketball overlap? And where does Monroe fit in when investigating this crossover?

Monroe’s reputation as an entertainer quickly established itself in the professional ranks, and his unique style quickly earned him a legion of admirers and national notoriety. He built a portfolio of incredible moves just as quickly as he built a fan base. But what happens when we reimagine that experience? What if the artist criticizes his own work? Here is Monroe as a member of his own audience, barely removed from retiring in 1980, trying out a collection of his greatest moves.

Part curiosity and part mythology, when Monroe was designed by the Bullets in 1967, he had set point records (41.5 ppg as a senior) while leading little Winston-Salem to the minor college national title. From pure word of mouth as a colleague in the south to full, lively color with the professionals. His answer: Rookie of the Year. He scored 56 points in a game against Jerry West and the Lakers, the most points a rookie guard has ever scored in a single game to date. In his second season he was all-first-team NBA, and by the third year 1970 he had given eventual champions Knicks everything they could handle in an epic seven-game series. Monroe went one step further with the Bullets in 1971, helping pull his injury-ridden squad past New York at an annual spring get-together before falling in the final against Milwaukee.

Earl Monroe as a member of the Washington Bullets

Baltimore was the highlight of the Monroe Experience. However, the accomplishments themselves could never rival the feeling of watching him at work. Monroe’s legend on the streets of Philadelphia, where he learned and developed his game as a teenager, has slowly been surpassed by his legend in the NBA, where he brought these two worlds together and sprinkled a bit of the streets onto the professional courts. When two of the most physical players in their positions – Wes Unseld and Gus Johnson – smashed the defensive back walls at the Civic Center and kicked the ball to the eagerly awaited Monroe, magic usually ensued.

Between 1969 and 1974 – a remarkable six post-seasons in a row – the Bullets and Knicks clashed in the playoffs. It remains one of the most intriguing rivalries in league history; two teams that are diametrically opposed in style, but are evenly coordinated across the entire floor. Unseld and Willis Reed. Johnson and Dave DeBusschere. Jack Marin and Bill Bradley. Kevin Loughery and Dick Barnett. Monroe and Walt Frazier. It was the school yard, choosing and dividing pages, brought to the professional game. The Bullets sought power by reducing the game to five one-on-one matches and taking advantage of their individual brilliance. the now legendary Knicks, on the other hand, formed the ultimate team unit, a diverse collective of star power ready and able to lean on one another. This is the NBA story you need to know folks.

In contrast to Monroe, Frazier, also from the 1967 draft class, was a master at the defensive end of the floor and the owner of his own unique grace. When the two faced each other, it was pure theater: street wizards met sneaky pickpockets with 19,000 spectators who held their breath. For Monroe, Frazier was the ultimate test of his one-on-one skills; shake Frazier, throw him off balance, and everyone was dominable. For Frazier, the idea of ​​staring at a dribbling Monroe while in the background a scared crowd chanting at Madison Square Garden was his kind of nirvana.

Yet that rivalry was neither Russell v Chamberlain nor Robertson v West, with an endless stream of competitions played out over a decade. It was a short, sharp rivalry – with a most unusual twist.

Archive 75 Earl MonroeWhat arrived in New York alongside Monroe was an almost unprecedented level of speculation, mostly about his ability to adapt and live with Frazier. He had freelanced as a bullet and the results were glorious. But only six months after leading Baltimore into the championship series, he was now a member of arch-rival Knicks, not an immediate starter and played sporadically. After that spotty first season, he had to have his feet operated on as he had played in pain for most of the year. Was the best of “Earl The Pearl” already in the rearview mirror?

If the New York Believers died for a magical moment at the Knicks’ early this second season to claim Monroe, they got it. While that season ultimately ended with a title for Monroe and the Knicks, his reputation as one of the most popular players in franchise history can be traced directly to what happened on November 18, 1972 at Madison Square Garden against the mighty Bucks. With 5:50 remaining in the fourth quarter, it was Milwaukee 86, New York 68.

Many words could be used to describe what happened next; the Knicks’ 19 unanswered points, 11 from the hands of Monroe; about how it stays one of the most dramatic comebacks of all time. Or we could take a look. Here are the last few minutes. Listen to the garden crowd. Watch out for Monroe’s brilliance.

Legends in this league come in a variety of forms. Some rely heavily on continued greatness, a collection of numbers and accomplishments that leave no room for interpretation. Others just give us a moment of greatness, maybe on the biggest stage, maybe when it’s least expected. Somewhere in between are the chosen brothers who changed the way the game was played.

The guards played differently when Monroe left the game in 1980, certainly different than the guards when he arrived in 1967. The style he popularized was once subject to skepticism, accepted, and was undeniably wonderful to look at. Stop, stare and admire – Monroe’s legacy in visual form.
