I don’t know if anybody else has paid attention to this, but have you noticed how hard NBA players try to look like something out of the pages of GQ these days? Gone are the years when Commissioner Stern had to snap on the players (namely Allen Iverson) to ensure they wouldn’t come to the games looking like they just stepped off of a street corner. Now players are trying their hands at all the big trends, trying to remind everybody through their Gucci Shoes and Prada shirts that yes, they do have money, and now they want to start dressing like it. With that, we collected images of our four favorite players from the big Finals bout between the Heat and the Thunder (Game 2 to be specific) to see which of these cute brothas made a fly style move, and which ones need to stop it.
Look at Kevin Durant! Looking like a tall glass of water… *winks* Before the game, Durant arrived at the Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City wearing this tan suit with his fitted pants, orange tie with gold tie bar, plaid oxford shirt and navy blue pocket square. To help accessorize, the 6’9″ small forward wore laid back dark brown Chuck Taylors, a brown belt, and some Ray Ban-eque eyeglasses. I’m guessing the new trend for men is to dress down nice suits with sneakers, and while I’m not a huge fan of that, Durant looks nice. He’s just so freaking tall…And those arms…yikes!
Bron Bron also made a fashionable entrance into the arena last night, but went for a more laid back yet still dressy outfit. He wore this chic sky blue and heather blue sweater with its rugby white collar with a pinpoint oxford blue shirt and VERY fitted white pants. To accessorize, he went for blue and white suede shoes, a keychain on his belt loop, and a dark blue baller band to bring the look together. Another snazzy look for this guy, if I only I could stand him…(just kidding!)
