LeRoy Neiman Olympic Basketball Poster

We used to have a copy of Neiman 's Olympic b-ball poster hanging in our basement, that was given out as a promotion either by Burger King or McDonalds:

The green Martian guy in the left hand corner always creeped me out. However, upon further consideration, I wonder if it was Neiman's passive aggressive artistic indictment against the 1972 US Olympic men's basketball team who protested against getting shafted and cheated out of a gold medal by crooked refs.
