NBA stars have gone full-on hipster with their fashion at post-game press conferences this year.But where did this trend come from? NBA players were not wearing anything close to frameless glasses last year, or in years past. In fact, they basically stuck to your run-of-the-mill suit, not adhering to any of the latest fashion trends. So why now?
We took a look at what the big players were wearing at press conferences in the past several years and came up with two theories:
1) The OKC Thunder and Miami Heat are relatively young teams compared to teams in the finals in years past. They are just more attuned to what’s going on in the fashion world.
2) Westbrook decided to wear a crazy outfit, caught everyone’s attention, so the rest of the players decided to follow suit.
We’re not sure, but something definitely happened.
Kobe, styled it up a little in 2010 with a black vest and blinged out finger, but really came no where near the accessories of this year
And last year LeBron and Dwyane certainly dressed to impress, but they were just in your basic suit with a nice pocket square
