The Blind Leading The Blind

So, Sports Illustrated recently ran a poll with a number of NBA players on who amongst their peers is the most stylish. I wasn't surprised by some of the choices, but c'mon...what did Jarrett Jack do to be considered stylish by his peers? I was incredulous. The last people you want to adjudicate on style matters are sports journalist. The very last people, though, who you want to poll on style matters are professional basketball players. The two just don't mix. Below is a list of the top 15, from lowest to highest:

Jarett Jack

Derek Fisher

Amar'e Stoudemire

Dwight Howard

Steve Nash

Zaza Pachulia

Keyon Dooling

Ray Allen

Juwan Howard

Kevin Garnett

Carmelo Anthony

Chris Paul

Lebron James

Kobe Bryant

Dwayne Wade

Wow. No Chrish Bosh. No James Harden. No Wesley Johnson. These guys are notable dressers in the NBA and I have seen some of them in pictures. This list is highly flawed, which is why I titled it as 'the blind leading the blind'. The league is full of so many bad dressers, they can never be relied upon to give any kind of view or opinion on others they deem to be well dressed.

PG: Man to man, generation to generation.

Steve Nash just talked me out of considering that Burberry Prorsum tie; non-verbally, no less

I like Carmelo Anthony's sense of adventure and would like to see what he would do in collaboration with a good tailor

Best as always,
