Chef reimagines NBA superstars, sneakers as sushi rolls (pics)

A sushi chef has impressively reimagined a handful of NBA superstars and some popular basketball sneakers in the food medium that is his culinary expertise.

Yujia Hu, evidently a huge NBA fan and sushi chef based in Italy, has documented his culinary creations, primarily comprised in sushi-roll form, on his SakanaSushi Milano Instagram page.

Among the NBA superstars — past and present — represented in sushi-roll form over the past several months include Dirk Nowitzki, Stephen Curry, James Harden, Isaiah Thomas, Paul Pierce and His Airness himself, Michael Jordan.

Incredibly impressive. And presumably quite tasty as well.

Here are a few of Yujia Hu sushi-sneaker creations as well.

Never has a sneaker looked so appetizing, right? And there’s nothing fishy about that sentiment, either, folks.
