“I never heard of anyone thinking about dunking the sun.” said Anthony Davis about the concept photographer Dustin Snipes had for a Red Bull Shoot.

Anthony Davis is one of the brightest stars in the league and in this shoot he got to dunk, shoot and swat the brightest star in our solar system to create one of the most beautiful basketball photo sets I’ve ever seen.

“Dunking the sun was tough and we had to be on cue every time,” AD told RedBull.com. “As soon as I thought we got the shot, the photographer would say it’s not good enough. I’m like … oh man, OK.”

They also did a pretty cool remake of this famous Nike poster.

The only shot missing from this set was a pic of AD’s brows flying in front of the sun.
