No-Sign: Fashion of the NBA Playoffs

No-Sign: Fashion of the NBA Playoffs
No-Sign is a regular feature that gives an in depth opinion on whatever deserves a proper verbal thrashing.  Basically, instead of earning a highly esteemed Co-Sign, it’s about to catch fade on a No-Sign.  In this edition, I am profoundly befuddled at how ridiculous some of these NBA cats are dressing themselves, especially during this year’s playoffs.

I don’t think I’d be going out on any limb whatsoever by stating that the first round of this year’s NBA Playoffs have been the best I’ve seen ever.  Save for the Miami/Charlotte series, each other contest within both conferences have been competitive, dramatic, and wildly entertaining.  The different narratives to discuss regarding each series reads like a laundry list; from the Atlanta Hawks giving the top-seeded Indiana Pacers a serious run for their money, to LaMarcus Aldridge and Damian Lillard checkin’ the Houston Rocket’s collective chins, to Steph Curry tossing yoga flames from beyond the arc and lighting up the Clippers like it was the 4th of July.  With each hotly contested playoff series, we as fans get to enjoy a historic run of top notch quality NBA basketball.

BUT.

And that of Kardashian-sized proportions….

The outfits these cats are running around in off the court are absolute bricks.  Sartorial air balls to the utmost degree, if you will.  I mean, the way these games have been absolutely top notch in quality, these NBA players’ fashion sense have been conversely just as awful.  Don’t believe me, just watch:

For Exhibit A, we’ve got Mike Conley looking like he getting ready to have a quick b-boy sesh with Turbo and O-Zone:

Moving on, we have some rare footage of the extremely endangered snow leopard in its natural hab….oh wait….nah, that’s just Andre Iguodala lookin’ like a gotdamn fool.

Next up, we’ve got repeat fashion offender, Russell Westbrook, modeling the latest in Ninja Turtle stuntman swag.

Chandler Parsons must have left his Crayola markers in his shirt pocket and threw it in the wash or something.

In summation, the buffoonery that’s adorned the likes of these world class athletes has been downright hideous, proving that earning a million bucks still can’t help you look like some.  Here’s hoping the second round of the playoffs deliver even more excitement and a flair for the dramatic, with the styles of the players improving some, even by just a little. ‘Cause really, the art of getting dressed in a dark closet while blindfolded and rockin’ some cataract-sensitive sunglasses, or at least looking like you did, is not the move, guys.

Reach loves the Lakers, breakfast, the sound of a Fender Rhodes, and rapping along word for word to Wu Tang's "Triumph." If you're looking for him, he's probably out getting chicken.
