NBA Fashion, Vol. 1: What’s Really Hot In The Streets

By: 09.21.12
From Jordan‘s sneakers to Iverson‘s tattoos, the NBA and its players have long had an influence that reaches far beyond the basketball court… and today, the league’s focus on fashion seems to be climbing to entirely new heights. With resources like Twitter and Instagram at their fingertips, many players are captivated by a perpetual quest to promote the latest trend. This obsession with social media, in conjunction with a mass hipster movement and David Stern‘s implementation of the dress code, has resulted in a fair bit of questionable dressing.

How many of the fishing lures from Russell Westbrook‘s shirt have actually caught on, though? You see, it’s ultimately up to you to decide… and for this reason we ask you, what’s really hot in the streets?

WHO: Nick Young
WHAT: Nike Air Yeezy II/Billionaire Boy’s Club Jacket/New Era Cap
WHERE: Instagram
WHEN: August 23
WHAT I THINK: Breaking News: Nick Young Wears Normal Outfit! Seriously, though… I think this is the first time I’ve ever seen Nick Young and thought, “Hey, I’d actually consider leaving the house in that outfit.” Not that I’d be caught dead in a pair of Yeezys, or that I wouldn’t be feeling pretty damn claustrophobic in those jeans… but the basic blueprint – sneakers, jeans, jacket, matching cap – is what I’m referring to here.
