posterize (po'-stur-iz) verb. posterized, posterizing, posterizes. To embarrass someone during a basketball game by means of a spectacular move or well-executed play. Usually refers to when one player dunks the ball over the top or in front of another player, making the play so picturesque that it may appear on a poster.

Usage example: Rasheed Wallace likes to posterize Greg Ostertag.

Welcome to the poster, Greg.

Usage Note: Some players, such as Greg Ostertag, may have their own versions of this feat. When someone is posterized by Ostertag, they are "Osterized." This typically is even more embarrassing than a typical posterization.
