Last month, in the wake of multiple players testing positive for Covid-19, the league that turned “NBA style” into a thing announced it was postponing its current season. It was one of the first major American institutions to take such a drastic step, and the move was undoubtedly a blow to hoops fans across the globe. No more high-flying slam dunks, buzz-beating jump shots, or jaw-dropping alley-oops. Also…no more friendly scarf-themed style showdowns or big-style, game-day fits! However, the lack of games hasn’t stopped some of the NBA’s most fashion-inclined youngsters from turning to Instagram during quarantine to show off their latest fits. Here are a handful of looks to hold you over until the league is officially back in business.
The breakout Celtics star isn’t about to let spending the day on the couch get in the way of getting a fit off. Brown posed in skinny jeans and a worn-in hoodie by the beloved Los Angeles brand Rhude. Plus, he went with the three-image gallery post too. Gotta show off multiple angles of the fit.
Some might say that you should leave the fit pics to the NBA youngsters, but Tucker will have none of that. The 34-year-old posted up in a graphic long-sleeve tee and sweat-shorts (and some Jordans) to promote his own brand, the Better Generation. All of the proceeds from sales went to a Houston food bank, so fear not, as the self-promotion was for a good cause.
Porter Jr. takes his NBA2K seriously. Serious enough that the Nuggets star donned Rhude track pants and a Puma Basketball tee on his way to play some video games. He even made sure to carry a duffel bag for the on-court kicks.
Spring is finally here, which means the return of loud colors and even louder prints. Daniels went with a Jackson Pollock–esque shirt from the unisex label PORTSV, pastel-pink joggers, and a fresh pair of Supreme-adorned Air Force 1s.
But it wouldn’t be a fit gallery without an entrant from Kyle Kuzma, fresh off GQ’s Big Fits From Home portfolio. The 24-year-old Lakers forward has turned his hallway into his own stadium tunnel and filmed himself doing the “tunnel walk” in several high-style outfits. There’s flashy sneakers, bucket hats, crossbody bags, and even a fuchsia-colored suit. Bonus points for setting the footage to a dreamy Majid Jordan song.
