These NBA players are turning hallways and tunnels into runways with their memorable looks

Apart from basketball, these NBA players are also taking fashion seriously. And you can tell with the way every outfit gets bolder, crazier, and more memorable every time they walk through the tunnel or hallway on the way to the arena. Seems like some of these NBA players are turning stadium hallways and tunnels into runways — and we’re not complaining! Browse through the list and see that some of these styles just might be your new fashion inspiration:

Lebron James

Lebron James of the Los Angeles Lakers walks through a roomful of photographers with confidence in his shorts suit. Although he’s always looked fresh in streetwear or tweed coats, Lebron surely rocked the shorts suit well as he paired it with his custom jewellery and a Royal Oak Offshore Arnold Schwarzenegger The Legacy Chronograph. The outfit he wore to Game 1 had Twitter buzzing, and it’s enough to prove that Lebron’s made a fashion statement.

James Harden

Houston Rockets’ James Harden’s style is mostly a mix of fashion ideas he’d seen over the years during his travels and usually takes inspiration from other people. But often, he throws in something a little “crazy” based on what’s feeling, he once shared in a YouTube interview.

Jimmy Butler

One of the best casual outfits during pregame arrivals belong to Jimmy Butler from Miami Heat. But aside from that, he’s looked incredibly dapper in Dior, an Astrid Andersen Tracksuit, a floral Saint Laurent denim jacket and more.

PJ Tucker

Houston Rockets’ PJ Tucker knows the fashion game just as much as the other stylish NBA players do. But you have to hand it to PJ for also going for bold colour combos such as that all-red outfit under an orange coat. And yes, he loves red and orange a tad much.

Kelly Oubre Jr

Golden State Warriors’ Kelly Oubre Jr doesn't like to overdo fashion. He sticks to colour coordination—like matching black and white in his outfits—then heads over to his collection to pick a few pieces of jewellery to accessorise. Almost every outfit Kelly has worn is noteworthy as it’s often simple yet eye-catching with details like a 1017 Alyx 9SM Harness and of course, a pair of converse.

Russell Westbrook

Russell Westbrook, point guard for the Washington Wizards, shared in a YouTube interview that he doesn’t really wear a shirt underneath—and we can clearly see that whenever he dons ripped sweaters and shirts. Just shows how Russell isn’t really afraid to switch up his style, ultimately making him one of the most iconic and stylish NBA players. Sure, he likes matching his clothes from top to bottom, but it’s often more memorable when he wears something completely different.
