They’re saying 2015 has already eclipsed last year musically. I can’t lie. I have to agree. While Big Sean just released what’s sure to be one of the albums of the year, Kanye West has also given us enough of a taste of his new album that you have some fans already calling it a classic — just off the strength of “All Day” alone. Add in his new adidas clothing line launch, and his iconic Yeezy Boosts and ‘Ye is dominating 2015. Dominating. At this point, he can do no wrong. His style is going to define this year in pop culture.
In Style Points at The Drop, it’s never about what you do but how you do it. Case in point: Stephen Curry. We all know he can shoot — the whole world knows he can shoot. But at this point, with Golden State sitting pretty in the top spot in the West, Curry is trying to add a second dimension to his MVP credentials by launching deep threes and turning to beckon to the crowd…before it even goes in. That’s Larry Bird-level swagger.
Curry wasn’t the only ballplayer bringing it hard these past few weeks, either. Russell Westbrook continues to terrorize the world, unloading triple-double after triple-double, even putting one up with a dang dent in his face and a mask on. If that doesn’t deserve major style points, then I don’t know what does.
In this week’s edition of Style Points: 2015 Is Officially Yeezy Season; Stephen Curry Is Too Smooth.
