The Worst Dressed in Sports
I have stepped outside my comfort zone to do this and it was a lot of work, however I feel it was worth it in the long run as it’s another venue of growth for me. Additionally, this will bring me into another area of viewers or at least I am optimistic about that anyway. With these twenty five, I don’t claim to be Richard Blackwell who is infamous for his worst dressed lists, but I don’t know what these athletes were wearing and/or thinking.
I tried to find athletes across different sports, as lacking fashion sense is seemingly universal regardless of gender or sport. While this might be NBA heavy as they are guilty more times than any other sport. There are some I know that do it purposely to stick out or is part of their marketing, but ugly is ugly no matter how it is sliced.
Additionally there are some repeat offenders, and rightfully so as some of the outfits they wear in public are so downright hideous that they deserve to be on this list more than once. These athletes are in no order other than the repeat offenders are back to back for personal organizational reasons. The opinions on here are mine alone so don’t take them too personally and I don’t intend to be too mean, but what do you all think? Did I leave anyone off you would have liked to have seen?
Thank you for reading my first of hopefully many clubhouse articles, and I heavily encourage discussion so either leave a comment on here, hit me up on twitter @TheProfessorSD or I am using Google+ so if you could +1 this and any other article of mine you’ve read and liked. I will discuss this article or anything else you’d like football related! Have a great day!
#1 Dwayne Wade
The real face of the Miami Heat, Dwayne Wade amazing athlete no question, but I don't get the glasses with the flipped up sunglasses attached, you aren't Principal Ed Rooney from Ferris Bueller's Day Off nor is this 1986.
#2 LeBron James
Maybe it's me but I don't get this whole look either of glasses with only the frames and no lenses especially on LeBron James, if it's to try to make a person look pseudo-intellectual, try harder next time.
#3 Russell Westbrook
In part one of part two, I swear Russell Westbrook must dress in the dark or something the outfits are louder than any car's sound system and they never match, but more on this on the next slide.
#4 Russell Westbrook Part 2
My first of a few repeat offenders on my list, and yes Russell Westbrook is one of those dressers that is so bad that he deserved a second slide. I don't know if he gets paid to wear this stuff or what even if it was a paying venture, I'd strongly considering getting a fire drum and burn these threads.
#5 Dwight Howard
Dwight Howard looks too much like Kanye West here and it's not a good look on someone who is 6' 11" 270 lbs. It just looks stretched out to fit his frame.
#6 Jeremy Lin
The suit Jeremy Lin is actually wearing is nice but these glasses don't look flattering to him at all and make him look far older than 23 years old as he was in this picture.
#7 Carmelo Anthony
Is Carmelo Anthony going camping? That was just my first thoughts or he was going to Arizona when I saw this picture, it isn't dressy nor is it basketball like.
#8 Tom Hodges
Morehead State University's women's basketball coach Tom Hodge is the next repeat offender on this list, I've seen some ugly suits in my day but just wow I am speechless over here. Don't worry the second slide of him is even worse.
#9 Tom Hodges Part 2
I wasn't kidding was I? I don't know who or what inspires this? If you attend Morehead State or now someone, please let me know. That is if you aren't blinded by these insane suits.
#10 Brian Wilson
I think San Francisco Giants closing pitcher Brian Wilsonis the craziest man in baseball, if not all sports between his beard and his sense of humor. I guess we can also put dresser now into his lists of insanity.
#11 Michael Jordan
The greatest basketball player of all time, Michael Jordan going all denim for this year's Ryder Cup and my question is just why and why isn't he standing up!? Two questions that direly need answers and/or remedies fast.
#12 Us Womens Fencing
To be honest here, I would have not known they were part of the USA without their backs to us, since this is the least patriotic outfit I've ever seen the Americans ever wear. Minus the old glory patch, I would have guessed Spain, but more on that country on the next slide.
#13 The Spainish Synchronized Swimming Team
I understand that some of this sport is their outfits, but these girls belong on the Vegas Strip, not the swimming pool. They look like Showgirls, and no not the movie, worse.
#14 Bradley Beal
This suit isn't bad, however it is vested and the vest is less then flattering to be kind, so here's hoping that vest magically vanished.
#16 A.J. Hawk
Flannel!? Sorry A.J. Hawk, while it is winter in this picture, but the Super Bowl was in Houston, I have a feeling it's a bit warmer in Texas than Green Bay, Wisconsin. I would have let it slide more so if the flannel had green and yellow in it though it's still ugly.
#17 John Daly
When I say the word loudmouth, I wish I was talking about John Daly's actual mouth, but in this case I am talking about his pants. They are certainly loud that is for sure! Don't worry friends Daly is also a repeat offender so you're in for a treat!
#18 John Daly Part 2
I don't think I disappointed with this part two, but back to the loudmouth comment, for all you non-golf fans and I know plenty, Loud Mouth is actually the brand of pants he's wearing, and it's his brand. He was known for selling the pants out of the back of his car to any fan of his. If you would like the link (though I don't know why) I would be glad to give it to you.
#19 Shaun White
Shaun White I swear has to be worst dressed on this list, due to the fact of his 5' 8" 155 lb. frame makes him look like he's wearing women's clothes. I know he's a skater and a snowboarder, but his long hair doesn't help him for this argument, sorry fans of Shaun.
#20 Jennifer Capriati
Ever wondered where tennis phenom Jennifer Capriati ended up? I think she went to the jungle and married Tarzan, or at least it seems with this dress, not quite tennis like. I do know she isn't playing anymore but that print is screaming at me and I don't know if I like that.
#21 Tyson Chandler and Jeremy Lin
I have no clue what these things Tyson Chandler, David Duchovny, David's Son or Jeremy Lin are wearing, it looks like a button up shirt with a New York Knicks patch just thrown on.
#22 Dirk Nowitzki, Rodrigue Beaubois, and Shawn Marion
This is much more so a bash on Dirk Nowitzki than Rodrigue Beaubois, or Shawn Marion. His dress shirts look like mine, after I wear them all day and throw them down the laundry chute and I am willing to bet they smell about the same. I'm glad we don't have smell-o-vsion yet, thank goodness.
#23 Dennis Rodman
Dennis Rodman, the man who's worn countless controversial ensembles including a wedding dress, that could make anyone blush has to be on this list. And this is one of his more subtle styles, clothing and hair included.
#24 David Beckham
He was making over $50 million a year and he's wearing a long sleeved shirt in Los Angeles!? He's from England, L.A. is about 35 degrees warmer. Shouldn't he be shirtless like usual?
#25 Don Cherry
The man who originated this list or at least close to it, hockey legend Don Cherry also must have perfected the saying, who shot the couch?
