Was there really any question that the Miami Heat are the most "GQ motherfucker" team in sports history? GQ itself seems to confirm this, because their recent "Most Stylish NBA Players Ever" list is dominated by Miami Heat players. And yes, the big three dominates the top five.
Even Juwan Howard nabs a spot at number 12 as a member of the University of Michigan's Fab Five, the starters who helped banish tiny shorts in favor of baggier affair on the court once and for all.
Chris Bosh comes in at five for his exquisitely tailored suits. Dwyane Wade takes the third spot, while LeBron James just bests him at second. Don't get us wrong, we think James dresses fly, but we kind of credit Wade with kicking off the recent trend of basketball stars caring about how they dress off the court. We mean, the guy did manage to pull off this outfit. James may be the best player in the league, but we think Wade is the best dressed.
Though, this is an all-time list, and both Wade and James are bested by Walt "Clyde" Frazier. If either of those dudes can manage to pull of a look like this ...
... without people laughing their heads off, then maybe one day they can claim the number one spot.
