SPRINGFIELD, Mass.–What’s more entertaining… Watching this years NBA Playoffs or skipping the game entirely just to wait and see who has the worst sense of fashion out of the players in the postgame press conference. One thing’s for sure… When it comes to fashion sense and professional sports, the NBA is dead last! Here’s who are The Five Worst Outfits of the 2014 NBA Playoffs:
Number Five – Kendrick Perkins, Power Forward/Center, Oklahoma City Thunder: Yeah… Perk looks like one mean dude, but what was he thinking when he put these threads on? Was he out of dress clothes? Come on man! A full-zip sweatshirt and Nike sneakers! It’s the NBA Playoffs Kendrick! Don’t you want to look your best?
Number Four – Jeremy Lin, Point Guard, Houston Rockets: Didn’t Jeremy Lin go to Harvard? Last time I checked, there weren’t any NBA franchises in Hawaii… What’s with the flowered button down and matching shoes? What are you… On vacation!?! And don’t even get me started on the jeans!
Number Three – Chandler Parsons, Small Forward, Houston Rockets: Ha. Ha. Ha. Where to start? Where to start? First off… Isn’t Chandler Parsons in the NBA and not the PBA? What’s with the bowling shoes? And is he wearing capris or are they just sweatpants rolled up? Either way, no one should be wearing them. Last but not least… another flower shirt. I guess one can understand wear Jeremy Lin got the idea his. Maybe they bought them together?
Number Two – Russell Westbrook, Point Guard, Oklahoma City Thunder: Westbrook and teammate Kevin Durant are known for their odd sense of fashion, but this might be taking it a bit far… In this outfit choice, Westbrook doesn’t even decide to attempt to wear a suit. Not to mention, the color red is not any one of three or four colors in the Thunder’s uniform or logo. Better luck next time Russ!
Number One – Dwyane Wade, Shooting Guard, Miami Heat: D-Wade! Say it ain’t so!!! Even I know not to wear overalls like that, and to your game no less! And this is coming from a guy who wears groutfits (grey shirt and grey sweatpants) on the reg! When it comes to this postseason’s worst outfit, Dwyane Wade takes the cake with his overalls, dress shirt, and Keds. Good thing he’s good at basketball!
Who do you think has the worst fashion sense in the NBA? Am I missing any other bad outfits from this year’s playoffs?
