Basketball is kinda boring. Seriously. I try, but it’s mostly boring.
What’s not boring is this glorious period where the NBA’s finest become fashionistas and fashion face-offs across the board ensue. I believe it is called the Playoffs. I prefer to call it NBA Fashion Weeks.
Round 1 Winner – Chandler Parsons takes out this round in an oriental floral print Dolce & Gabbana shirt, slim fit tapered jogger style pants and fantastic fluro toed brogues.
Honourable mentions to perennial snappy dresser Russell Westbrook for trying his hand at colour blocking and Courtney Lee for his sweet high tops.
Dishonourable mentions to Chris Bosh for trying to dress like D-Wade and Harrison Barnes for wearing a ladies blazer.
Finally, an I’m not really sure mention to Robin Lopez of the Portland Trailblazers because, well, I’m not really sure what is going on there…..It’s a little Edward Cullen when he was first turned Vampire or something (remember that weird Quileute flashback scene?….no?) . I will say this though, despite my confusion, the whole look is pretty hot.
If the first round is anything to go by, lads, if you fancy yourselves fashionable, you had best get to the store for floral shirts and tapered jogger trousers immediately.
