Dress Etiquette for the NBA
New York Times reporter Sarah Lyall yesterday live-tweeted a session of the NBA’s Rookie Transition Program, a class for new players that proves that no matter how much money you’re guaranteed, corporate America can still hold you in a room against your will and force you to wear an embroidered golf shirt for three days. Some choice pointers from an NBA fashion consultant, a GQ “executive stylist,” and others:

Every NBA gentleman should have a peacoat, a baseball jacket, a raincoat and an overcoat in his closet, apparently.
It is good to wear an expensive watch, the NBA fashion consultant says. No sunglasses indoors. No headphones. No shlumpy untailored suits.
"This is extremely important. Every one of you must have a navy suit, must have a black suit, must have a gray suit."
When NBA gentlemen leave the house, they should throw on an expensive watch and maybe a signature fragrance, the GQ editor says.
There are many ways of dressing up a cargo pant.
If you can’t articulate how you want your clothes to look, cut a picture out of a magazine.
You can wear the navy blazer with the black pants.

Dear Adam Silver: the Put This On team stands ready to assist should you need a more coherent set of standards than this. And Jesse is pretty tall.
[Pictured: Russell Westbrook, not a rookie at all, I know.]

“They are taking control of the water supply. They are breaking dams, and flooding crops, and destroying the food supply of an entire country. They are forcing hundreds of thousands from their homes. It seems that there is a hand behind all of this. They are very calculating. They are making their moves very carefully to destroy the human soul. They want to rob an entire people of food and water and homes, as if to wipe them from the pages of history. And when they take the homes from these people, the children have no place to play. The children have no place to be young. No physical space, and no emotional space. They have no place to be a child, so their only frame of reference is war and fighting. And when that’s all they know, how can they grow up to be doctors and teachers? All they can possibly know is the desire for revenge and hatred for their enemies. I wish people would understand that Iraq is filled with intelligent, civilized people. This was the cradle of civilization in the Ancient World. Even the Garden of Eden was here. These aren’t dust covered, nameless refugees being forced from their homes. The refugee camps are filled with architects, and musicians, and teachers.”
