So the big controversy in the NBA was the whole dress code thing. Some spoke of the whole thing being racist while others commended David Stern for making the NBA a hot topic during MLB playoffs and October football. Whatever... to promote it and give it a positive spin, NBA.com is featuring a weekly Best Dressed winner. I had to check it out for the potential unintentional comedy. Where else can you get such a wide range of colors, button usage and... the varying uses of the man purse.
Yes, the most disturbing trend in NBA basketball for the 2005-06 season is the whole man purse thing. Look I live in LA and consider myself very aware of the fashion trends but I didn't really consider the whole man purse thing at all. So NBA players need to accessorize? Don't they have one or two members of their posse carry their shit around? And what do they need to carry anyway? Let's see... Ipod, travel paternity test kit, cell phone, spare cell phone, blackberry, Ipod w/ Video, cell phone charger, DV Camera...
All right, I guess they need the purses. Anyway, if you want to see some great NBA fashion highlights here are the previous winners:
