While there are plenty of NBA players who dress sharply, there are plenty whose outfits are straight out of Zoolander. Nevertheless, the NBA will be holding it first ever fashion show during All-Star Weekend; blame LeBron James and Samsung.
There is just no way this won’t be entertaining.
Reports the NBA:
All-Stars James Harden, Klay Thompson and DeMarcus Cousins are among the players to compete in the NBA’s first fashion show.
Produced by LeBron James’ Springhill Production Company, the one-hour “NBA All-Star All-Style” will be taped Friday night inside New York’s Hammerstein Theater and air Saturday at 6:30 p.m. EST on TNT.
It will have three rounds: dressing for the boardroom, a night out and attire worn to the game. The competition will start with eight players, with four advancing to the second round and the top two competing in the finals.
The show will be presented by Samsung Galaxy and besides NBA players there will be actual models on the runway, too.
But the kicker here is the judges—TNT analysts Charles Barkley and Kenny Smith and WNBA star Elena Delle Donne. Charles Barkley critiquing fashion?
We can’t wait.
