The Most Stylish NBA Players of the 2014 Season

  • Russell Westbrook


    Russell Westbrook

    No one embraced the thick-rimmed glasses trend more than Westbrook. Since then, he has been consistently bold with risk-taking materials, cuts, and styles. This summer he launched his own clothing and accessories line, Russell Westbrook XO Barneys New York. He has collaborated with companies like Jordan Brand, Del Toro, and Globe Trotter. Westbrook’s outfits are posted on social media almost as often as his highlight plays.

    Amar’e Stoudemire

    Playing in New York City thrusts athletes into the spotlight. From on the court to red carpet events, cameras are everywhere. Stoudemire has embraced the spotlight by donning his fashion-forward threads throughout the Big Apple. He co-designed a line with Rachel Roy and has become a mainstay at fashion shows.

    Rajon Rondo

    With a championship already on his resume, Rondo added GQ fashion intern to it. The point guard spent time during a recent offseason learning the ins and outs of the business. He varies his wardrobe to accommodate the cold Boston winters and travel to warmer cities — which he’ll have to do all the time now that he’s in Dallas — throughout the season. He is even able to laugh at some of his selections, appearing on E!’s Fashion Police and tossing out an old blazer with Joan Rivers.

    Many players endorse shoes. Parsons took it a step further (no pun intended) by partnering with the sock company Stance to promote its Fusion Basketball line. He then stepped in front of the camera for Buffalo David Britton. The 6-9 Parsons modeled jeans for the spring 2014 campaign.

  • Dwyane Wade


    Dwyane Wade

    Wade is not afraid to take chances when it comes to fashion. From unsnapped overalls with a button-down shirt to capri dress pants with a suit jacket, he knows how to standout from the crowd. Wade’s selections exude confidence by unapologetically pushing the boundaries of game-day attire.

  • Nick Young


    Nick Young

    Someone with the nickname “Swaggy P” isn’t going to play it safe. In addition to his extensive sneaker collection, he turns heads with attention-grabbing clothing patterns and can’t-miss color choices. This summer he attended Milan Fashion Week with his girlfriend, rapper Iggy Azalea. (And yes, they color coordinated their outfits.)

A basketball player’s performance isn’t the only thing discussed on game nights. Sure, you talk about 50-point performances and big slam dunks, but there is more to it these days. What they wear to the arena has become a hot topic of conversation.

Did you see that shirt? I can’t believe he wore those pants. Everyone is wearing those glasses.

The trend of oversized everything is long gone. Now it is about tailored attire, pushing boundaries, and making statements as loud as game-winning shots. From postgame press conferences to public appearances, athletes have become fashion icons. They are known by the uniforms they wear and the clothing they choose after the buzzer.

For some, this simply means working closely with stylists on a wardrobe. Having staples in their closet is a must throughout the season. For others, it means getting involved in the fashion industry, branching out to new business opportunities. From fashion internships to clothing lines, players are getting hands on. Clothing and accessories have given players the chance to express who they are outside of sports. As a result, vibrant personalities have emerged over the years.

Take a look at this list of the most stylist players. These are the ones who have you talking about their outfits, finding out where they bought them, and saying to yourself, “Wow, he really pulled that off.”

These are The Most Stylish NBA Players of the 2014 Season.
