How would you describe your own look?
My approach is contemporary—I go off what I feel, and I try not to do too much. I make sure it’s clean and classy and it fits my character.
Describe for me how you put a look together for an event like the ESPYs.
It all depends on what type of image I want to portray. If I feel “rockstar status” I’ll throw in a pair of All-Stars with a nice suit, or if I feel more contemporary I’ll throw in a nice tailor-made suit. It all depends on how I feel in the moment. With my style I’m very versatile, so I’m able to mix up a lot of different looks and styles.
Who’s the most stylish man in the NBA these days (present company excluded)?
I like the way Kobe Bryant dresses. It’s very contemporary, very easy. He’s not doing too much. It’s always good to see a little class with fashion.
Amar’e Stoudemire is one of the best dressed men in NYC, he just happens to be an All-Star basketball player. #morethanstats
