NBA Fashion: 3 Trendy Early-Season Fits

Russell Westbrook, Chris Paul, and Karl Anthony-Towns are three players that have made a nice transition from the NBA’s offseason, back into the grind of the NBA season both on the court and in their gameday wardrobes…well, except for Chris Paul. He’s hurt again.

Russell Westbrook:


Obviously, Russell is the unofficial fashion ambassador for the National Basketball Association. Everyone just knows his creative side inspires some really original fits that the sports world always attracts to.

To start the season, Russ rocked a chill outfit, which hinted towards a collaboration involving Honor The Gift. The jean jacket fit on the left was by B.íng, with off-white Nike’s and a Westbrook x Tumi kit.

This season, Russ is averaging 20.8 points, 9.8 rebounds, 12.2 assists through six games.

Chris Paul:

Chris Paul hasn’t had the best start to his 2017-2018 season on his new team, the Houston Rockets. After just one game, he’s already on the bench with an injury after a knee injury.

However, the man is still doing his thing when it comes to fashion. On the Rockets trip to Philly, he wore a Bally designed suit, and shoes designed by Common Projects.

Paul averages 4.0 points, 8 rebounds, and 12 assists in his one game that he played. The Rockets are (5-3).



Karl Anthony-Towns

But his custom hat, Valas designed “Teddy” Boots and Daniel Patrick distressed Jeans really stuck out before and after his team dropped a game to the Indiana Pacers last week.

Regardless, Towns has had a spectacular start to his third NBA season. He’s averaging 24.8 points and 11.8 rebounds per game and has looked like the best power forward in the NBA.
