The NFL regular season is here and everyone is gearing up for Sunday afternoons. Hopefully you have your jerseys and your sneakers and your food and snacks and new TVs all set to go. Hopefully you’ve drafted your fantasy squads. Hopefully your team isn’t the St. Louis Rams and hopefully you haven’t lost your starting franchise quarterback for the season … again. (Get better, Sam Bradford.) Fans of Reggie Bush, however, don’t have any reason to worry. This guy is ready to go.
Bush, and others like LeBron James, are getting highlighted here in Style Points for somewhat different reasons. Back in the day at USC, Bush was a monster, a highlight reel that routinely ended up as the top play on SportsCenter. Since coming to the NFL, the Lions tailback has lost some speed and gained some muscle in an effort to be an every-down back. It’s worked for the most part, but rarely do we see him break off a long run like he did recently against Jacksonville. Along with Bush this week is LeBron, who’s returned to Cleveland and seems like he’s preparing to bring some of the glory days back with him.
Then there was RiFF RAFF, who took it all the way back at the VMAs with Katy Perry.
Today, we’re breaking down our weekly Style Points, which highlights not what players — athletes and entertainers — have done but how they’ve done it. From Lance to LeBron, all of the following people did it big, even as some turned back the clock while others pushed it forward.
