The Finals matchup has been decided, and the San Antonio Spurs are currently playing a rematch against this year’s would be three-peaters, the Miami Heat. With two games down and the series tied, there are a lot more great plays and mistakes left to be made, both on and off the court. In terms of the latter, we’ve picked out the most noteworthy style moments—both good and bad—since the Finals series began. Check them out below.
Blake Griffin and Chris Paul
Blake Griffin here makes the best of the “cheerleader effect.” While Griffin’s John Varvatos meets Lanvin getup has no clear direction, CP3 kills it with a three-piece suit that includes a double-breasted vest and a spread-collar shirt.
Even outside a crowd, Paul stands out. This outfit makes heavy use of elasticated cuffs and hems, appearing on his short-sleeved sweater and leather pants.
Damian Lillard and Will Barton
Meanwhile in Rip City, The People’s Champ and Damian Lillard and are having a good—no, great—suit day. Lillard reprises his red-on-red look from the All-Star break as Barton sports a classic grey two-button with pleated trousers.
He loves that green vest, doesn’t he? For the second time, Derek Fisher breaks out the waistcoat look, this time vibing off the emerald with gold accents—his necktie, pocket square and bronze-burnished Oxfords. A+ for that polished playoffs beard, too.
Don’t let that confused look fool you, Lance knows exactly what he’s doing here. Backpack aside, the printed floral polo and tonally-matched kicks make us feel like he’s taking notes.
LeBron James and Dwyane Wade scrum together
Dwyane Wade and LeBron James scrum together, again
Another perfect post-game matchup, LeBron and Wade aced the interview with contrasting styles. Wade pulled off a bold geometric sweater, matching LeBron’s classic grey suit. It’s all in the details: an off-white boutonniere here, a high tie clip there.
It’s not the first time we’ve seen this jacket on Steph, and hopefully it won’t be our last.
There’s a reason you always wear your suit pants with their corresponding jacket—everyone can tell the difference. It looks like Green here is trying to pass off a pair of black jeans for something more stylish.
We loved KD’s MVP outfit. We love him in suits in general. It appears, however, that our champion has decided to pump up his casual game to disastrous levels of “freshness.” This, complete with an actual backwards cap, is the end result.
We know it gets hot out there, Lance. But when temperatures soar, ending the debate between pants and shorts with a pair of capris never looks cool.
LeBron James cramps his style
This is what LeBron James wore as he arrived for Game 1 against the San Antonio Spurs. We would have cramped up during Game 1 if we wore that T-shirt, too.
LeBron James in black
Is that an iPad mini in your pocket, or are you just happy to see us?
Hey, Duncan! Dress your age, okay? Oh.
Paul George and Roy Hibbert take a page out of Tim Duncan’s book
There are plenty of ways in which George and Hibbert should imitate Tim Duncan. His love for sloppy checks is not one of them.
Look, we know Brooklyn gets pretty warm this time of year. But if you’re putting on a checked blazer and a shirt, you’re tucking them in and skipping on the white pants.
CP3 is can get himself into all sorts of trouble with this outfit. Plowing fields, raising barns, macking on plain chicks.
Dwyane Wade’s all-white getup
Thabeet dresses like your crazy uncle, and he wants hugs, too.
Surprisingly, Westbrook doesn’t always make this list. But when he does, he’s wearing cutoff jeans, an elongated T-shirt and an admittedly awesome floral print bomber.
Printed blazers are making a bit of splash these days, but we aren’t at the 80s throwback stage of this fashion cycle quite yet, Ibaka.
The NBA’s grand master of fashion returns with a ground-breaking new look, pushing the very boundaries of dad style with the perfect pair of jean shorts.
