Dwyane Wade Comes First in Poll of NBA's Best-Dressed Players
After last night's humiliating loss, it's hard to muster evidence that the Miami Heat is number one in much of anything right now, but it might be the best-dressed team in the NBA. No, we're not talking about the uniforms. Sports Illustrated polled 137 current NBA players as to who has the best off-the-court fashion sense. Dwyane Wade came in number one, while LeBron James isn't far behind.
Wade tends to go forgo the typical hip-hop-inspired wardrobe of most ballers, and opts for more gentlemanly attire. More so than many other male style icons, Wade certainly isn't afraid of color. He has shown up at events in a rainbow of fitted sweaters, red designer sunglasses, yellow bow ties, green neckties, and purple polos. But never together. He's definitely got restraint, knowing just when the right pop of color is enough. His appreciation of fashion has inspired the Heat's tradition of taking official portraits that look more like GQ shoots, and intro videos that look like fashion commercials. So it's really no surprise the guy came in first.
LeBron James's wardrobe is a bit more muted, but the man certainly knows the value of a good suit. His sartorial savvy earns him the number three ranking in the pool.
Here's the full top 15:
1. Dwyane Wade
2. Kobe Bryant
3. LeBron James
4. Chris Paul
5. Carmelo Anthony
6. Kevin Garnett
7. Juwan Howard
8. Ray Allen
9. Keyon Dooling
10. Zaza Pachulia
11. Steve Nash
12. Dwight Howard
13. Amar'e Stoudemire
14. Derek Fisher
15. Jarrett Jack
Sorry, Chris Bosh. Guess it's time to step up your fashion game too.
