fashion-policeSPRINGFIELD, 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:

Kendrick Perkins

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?

Jeremy Lin

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?

Do you agree that Dwyane Wade's outfit takes the cake?

Does Dwyane Wade take the cake?

  • Chris Russo

    Nothing about the Rangers! WTF guys??? St. Louis scores for his mom on Mothers Day and they win a huge game?? Bad Job Bad Job Bad Job!

    • Junoir Blaber

      As part of my weird fan superstitions, I am not sure I should watch Game 7. I saw game 4 and wrote my piece, but then they won 5 and 6 so what do I do.

      • http://meetthematts.com/ Meet The Matts

        You are banned from having any contact with game seven, whatsoever.

        • Junoir Blaber

          Can I at least watch from outside the bar?

    • http://meetthematts.com/ Meet The Matts

      Terrific to have you here, Chris, but go easy on DJ…. he is a lifelong Sabres fan and thinks hockey ends in December… Let’s Go Rangers!!!

    • GrindingAx

      Don’t worry…I’ve got that covered tomorrow…

    • Cookies Corner

      Sick game. SICK! Good for St. Louis! Rangers looked overall strong and hungry. Let’s hope we see that in Game 7.

      DJ.. that Westbrook has the worst fashion there.. hands down. Generally NBA players have the worst fashion.. but the king of bad fashion in sports is Shannon Sharpe.

  • jgclancy

    Nothing about the A’s! WTF guys??? Norris homers for his mom on Mothers Day and they win a huge game?? Bad Job Bad Job Bad Job!

    • Junoir Blaber

      No one cares about your A’s Yim!!

      • jgclancy

        Oh yes someone does…and that’s me! And really aren’t I all that matters. Ah , the magic that is me…..

    • http://meetthematts.com/ Meet The Matts

      Mike Norris is back with the A’s.?

      • jgclancy

        I just read that he hit a homer…I actually don’t ever really know the names of any of the players on the A’s. I’m the ultimate team sport guy.Individuals are just cogs in the machine , baby!
        Go A’s! Yim cares!

        • AngryWard

          That is a fantastic viewpoint. Who needs to know the individuals? Yim, if you actually advertised your belief system (why give it the stigma of calling it a religion) you would have devout followers the world over.

          • jgclancy

            Tomorrow night,,,trivia,beer and niche sport Game 7 hockey all in the same bar. Yimology at it’s finest..and I will have some wings!

          • jgclancy

            P.S.– I have to say that crazy man L. Ron Hubbard was right about one thing.”If ya wanna get rich then start your own religion”…and I liked Battlefield Earth as bad as it was :)

  • AngryWard

    Westbrook looks like a drag queen.

    • Cheesybruin

      Didn’t the Mean Machine cheerleaders wear those outfits?

      • SAF

        Or Eddie Murphy in RAW?

        • http://meetthematts.com/ Meet The Matts

          As fashionistas/fans of haute couture, we have no problems with their extravagant styles of dress. Moreover, we recommend that the likes of those commenting here dress exactly as these NBA stars.

        • jgclancy

          Perfect SAF

  • Cheesybruin

    Any dude who rolls up his pants to expose his ankles needs to have his man card ceremoniously revoked. Looks like somebody dropped a bucket of paint on Chandler Parsons’ shirt.

    • Junoir Blaber

      Perkins and Lin aren’t that bad but the other 3 and DJ for doing a fashion police article in the middle of hockey playoffs, well…

      • DJ Eberle

        But it’s an NBA Playoffs fashion article… That should count for something.

        • http://meetthematts.com/ Meet The Matts

          What was the secret to the Polish comedian’s success?Timing! (the joke is that the punchline comes way too quickly, in case you didn’t get that in the printed word).

        • Junoir Blaber

          Not good enough. Upstairs to your room with no super, you go!

    • Cookies Corner

      Agreed. Men should also not wear capris.

  • http://meetthematts.com/ Meet The Matts

    THE METS WIN!!! THE METS WIN!!! THE METS WIN!!!

    • jgclancy

      You may get to say that again next week if you’re good.

  • WestCoastCraig

    Westbrook looks like he’s arriving for Christmas Ice Capades.

  • SAF
    • AngryWard

      Cautiously optimistic. So cautious, in fact, that it might be leaning towards pessimism.

  • jgclancy

    Start drinking now Cheesybruin…..Game 7 is coming for you too.Oh Canada
