NBA Fashion: 2013 NBA Playoffs Games 2-4, Rd 1(Russell Westbrook, Kevin Durant, Blake Griffin & More)

The battles continue off the court, as the fashion games are just starting to heat up in the 2013 NBA playoffs, Lets check out a couple fashionable looks from games 2 to 4 of  the 1st round.

Unfortunately we won’t be seeing Russell Westbrook(OKC Thunder) anymore, due to a knee injury suffered in Game 2 Vs. Houston. What is NBA playoffs fashion without Russell Westbrook ?? And yes that’s a leather shirt he’s wearing.


Dwight Howard(L.A. Lakers) elected for grey suiting, going with a preppy bowtie in game 2, and keeping it simple for game 3 with a classic white collar shirt.


Larry Sanders(Milwaukee Bucks) looked suave in tailored threads. Sometimes a great suit, doesn’t need to be accessorized with a tie or bow tie, just a basic collar shirt will do.

Superb color combo by Caron Butler(L.A. Clippers)

James Harden(Houston Rockets) dressed up a distressed denim shirt, with a plaid vest.

I thought this vibrant shirt Chandler Parsons(Houston Rockets) wore was dope.

I’m a big Zack Randolph fan(Memphis Grizzlies),  and never seen him look so dapper off the court. For Game 3 vs. Los Angeles Clippers, Zack enrobed in a windowpane suit he complemented with a knit necktie, and pocket handkerchief. They call the windowpane suit the “Power suit” for those tall dominant fellas.

When adding youth to formal wear, you can go with either a v-neck, crew neck or Henley shirt. Here Los Angeles Clipper star Blake Griffin pairs a stripe blazer jacket, with a grey Henley shirt.  In the second photo, Blake goes with a preppy approach for game 4 as he dressed up a denim shirt with a stripe necktie.

An injured Rajon Rondo(Boston Celtics) looked spiffy from the sideline as he wore a blend sweater, with slacks and loafer shoes for Game 2. Rondo spruced up his look a bit, going with the chic eyewear for game 3. As for game 4, rondo assembled a preppy suit, consisting of eclectic pieces. Love the glen plaid sports coat.


Kevin Durant(OKC Thunder) shined bright like a diamond, wait I don’t think I should ever compare another man to a diamond. Anyway Kevin took it back to the 90’s, Puffy & Mase days, with his lustrous silver custom jacket, by Phenom 247 clothing.


Mike Conley(Memphis Grizzlies) has stepped his fashion game up for the postseason, check out these two stellar looks below.

Game 3, Mike went with a chic stripe custom double-breasted blazer jacket worn with Topman denims, and Gucci shoes. Mike got creative complementing his stripe jacket with a polka dot pocket square, its great to play with patterns when done correctly.


For Game 4, Mike made a bold fashion statement with his H&M yellow pants.  Mike put a youthful twist to formal attire as he clothed in a single-button Dolce & Gabbana blazer jacket,  combined with a Rich and Rotten graphic t-shirt, putting the finishing touches to his fashionable look with a pair of $825 Guiseppe Zanotti double zipped hi-top  sneakers.


Carmelo Anthony reminded me of an old school gangster with this look, as he sported a double-breasted blazer jacket, with a fedora hat.
