When a basketball announcer reports that guys own the paint, you know exactly what he means.
Your mind immediately conjures up images very tall, muscular players standing protectively under the opponents’ basket.
The big guys are guarding the hardwood real estate within the painted lines on the court.
No need to even attempt entering their domain because they’ve surrounded the basket like protective sentinels.
Like the stack of buckets in this comic, these big men are blocking the basket.
In the case of this comic, it’ll be real tough to score against these guys. They figuratively – and literally – own the paint!
