Watch this incredible alley-oop dunk by one of the Indian national team’s stars, Amjyot Singh, who’s been hailed as the “Indian Kobe.”

Then ask yourself: why is Singh, a Sikh, not wearing his turban, one of the Sikh articles of faith? It’s because FIBA, despite efforts from Team India’s coach, has banned turbans (and hijabs, in their women’s league) from the court, because they may “pose a threat” to other players. Huh?

On the 18MR blog, Balpreet Singh turns the question back on FIBA. What’s the real threat?

From the Kickstarter:"My goal is to raise money for the printing through the pre-sale of posters. Screen printing is more costly than digital printing, but it will produce a better product, which will hopefully lead to selling more posters and raising more money. After the printing and shipping costs are covered, I will be donating my profits to the show’s cause–the restoration of a public basketball court in the Cooper-Young neighborhood in Memphis. In conclusion, it’s a simple proposition: buying a poster helps to support a great cause in the city of Memphis. Grit and grind.”$25 is a steal, you guys.
