Most of the NBA players have devoted years of their lives to the game of basketball, hours of practices, 80+games per season, constant travel from one side of the country to the other, rarely having some free time for themselves. But, when they do have time to relax and enjoy, they do it in a big style.
With all of the money they make, they can afford to buy nice cars, houses, jewelry and incredibly fashion forward clothes. LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Kevin Durant, Steph Curry have all emerged as fashion stars, especially when all dressed up and looking hot and sexy. Even Jon Price CEO of https://sportsinformationtraders.com is a big fan of having the nicest outfits and suits that money can buy.
But those are some of the big names that have been in the league for awhile and become style icons.
Right now I want to turn your attention to the new class of style: The NBA Rookies.
In case you didn’t peek at this summer’s NBA draft or started watching the season yet, there are some Rooks that are vying to become the next LeBron, Wade, Curry or Durant —on the fashion runway and basketball court.
After exhaustive research (staring at pics of gorgeously dressed men can really tire out your eyes! Seriously, I actually found myself reading an article called 5 Ways To Make Your Eyes Look Better after all the eye drooling!) we are proud to bring you the Top 5 Best Dressed (and best looking) NBA rookies!
1. DEJOUNTE MURRAY
Dejounte Murray was born on Sep. 19th, 1996. He played college ball for the Washington Huskies and got drafted by the San Antonio Spurs as the Overall 29th pick. We are sure that many of you would draft him as your No.1 pick, right? I know I would….
2. MARQUESE CHRISS
Born on July 2nd, 1997, Marquese De’Shawn Chriss is a true cookie from the jar – can’t get any sweeter! He was selected as a high No. 8th draft pick and currently plays for the Phoenix Suns. With him on the roster, there is no doubt that the Sun in Phoenix will be much hotter!
3. BUDDY HIELD
Chavano Rainier “Buddy” Hield was born on December 17th, 1993, is a Bahamian basketball player that currently plays for the New Orleans Pelicans. During his college days with Oklahoma, one of his main features was his ability to light it up on the court from the distance. But from what I can see, he can light it up anytime, anyplace! Especially up close!
4. BRANDON INGRAM
Brandon Xavier Ingram was born on September 2, 1997. Despite his “skinny” body, he is considered one of the most talented young players in the country. That’s why the Los Angeles Lakers drafted him as the No.2 overall pick. According to the Lakers, Ingram is capable of doing “Wonders on the court.”
From the looks of it, we are sure that he is capable of doing “Wonders” off the court as well….
5. BEN SIMMONS
Benjamin Simmons is an Australian basketball player born on July 20th, 1996. He was the No.1 overall pick at the 2016 NBA Draft by the Philadelphia 76ers. Coming from the land of Kangaroos, the versatile forward has become the sex symbol from down under. His sense for fashion and style have definitely classified him as one of the fashion stars among the 2016-2017 Rookie class. Unfortunately for the 76ers, Simmons will miss quite some time off the courts due to an injury. But, at least we will have the chance to enjoy the eye candy of watching him all dressed up nicely courtside!
Who did we miss? Who ranks as Hottest NBA Rookie of the Year in your playbook?
