The Los Angeles Lakers faced off against the New York Knicks Thursday night. The Lakers were playing their fourth game in five nights. The Knicks were on the second night of a back-to-back where they lost to the Golden State Warriors. My Lakers took this one with Kobe Bryant looking incredibly spry for a guy with no ligaments in his wrist and chronic knee and ankle issues. I’m sure players will be flocking to Germany for treatment if this type of play continues.

But, there was another head to head battle I get excited about, FASHION FACE OFF. Check out Kobe Bryant, Amar’e Stoudemire, Baron Davis, Coach Mike Brown and more in their game night ensembles.

Kobe opted for preppy chic in a monogram sweater and basic white button up.

Amar’e opted to show off his inner tough guy with a black leather jacket emphasized with a gold chain (he told me this summer he’s bringing 80’s gold back)

Of course, this is my outfit of choice for Knicks fans. They better start clicking soon. 16 less games to figure it all out. Oh well, BD is back soon.


wait, really??

You can also select the best dressed Inside the NBA commentator. Barkley can wear ties now and Shaq looks as if vests will be his go to look for the season.

Most importantly, Mamba was doing special stuff like this all night!
