Basketball fans will never be mistaken for fashion gurus. Generally speaking, the extent to which we dress up for games is largely contingent on what sort of free t-shirts are being given away on that particular night. That said, ugliness transcends fashion knowledge. When something is amazingly, horrifically ugly – everyone knows it’s ugly.
Case in point: check out what Los Angeles Clippers guard Nick Young wore to Monday night’s Clippers versus Memphis Grizzlies showdown (via Larry Brown Sports):
After L.A. won the game and took a commanding 3-1 series lead over Memphis, Young accompanied Chris Paul to the postgame press conference. There, Paul essentially summarized what every single person watching in America was thinking.
"Dress like a fool," Paul said, "and you have to show it."
Truer words have never been spoken.
