LeBron James producing first ever NBA fashion show

Now with the NBA knowing how to throw a bigger fashion party, we will be sure to entice you into our new world. Most people would love to have a dedicated blog that blends the sports world with fashion highlights. We sure enjoyed the All-star game and all the moves that Stephen Curry put out there. This is why you will notice that with enough ambition, you can get out of a tight spot and look like a winner:

According to XXL:

Executive produced by LeBron James’ Springhill Production Company, the NBA All-Style fashion show will be presented by Samsung Galaxy and will showcase some of the NBA’s marquee players and personalities wearing fashion-forward garments in a runway competition. Talent will include James harden, Klay Thompson, DeMarcus Cousins, Chandler Parsons and other NBA superstars. The special evening will count with the musical talents of Flo Rida and Wale. The fashion competition will feature three rounds – dressing for the boardroom, a night out and attire worn to the game and will judged by Charles Barkley, Kenny Smith, John Elliot, Elena Delle Donne and Will Welch.

Maybe the old jerseys are coming back in style: currently sporting a Washington nationals cap, I like those styles of hat or jersey but for this being the first year the fashion show. This is only one part of the fashion show, and the parts that are set out for attire in the boardroom maybe looks a little more: professional? Here we have 3 big stars- Westbrook, Lebron, and Durant styling hard for the cameras.

you have more times for all the things you want in life now- just know the real lyrics when sojones steps in. We know that this means all of the next stars on the red carpet better step it up for this one. More people are coming to sojones just for sports news. Our creative form will give you better looks at what shoe you want to pair with your trousers. It’s funny because WWD.com did a funny bit on the fashion criticism tip:

Watching Parsons march onto the runway in a Ralph Lauren suit, Tom Ford shirt and tie and Gucci shoes, the Sacramento Kings’ DeMarcus Cousins said, “OK, Chandler is a professional. He’s like a fashion model.”
Sporting an ASOS turtleneck, G-Star cargo pants and Nordstrom boots, Cousins said style is essential for post-NBA pursuits. “I do think it’s important because basketball doesn’t last forever. If you want fashion and other opportunities, you have to have your own sense of style,” he said, before being ushered onto the runway.

Also looking noticeably uncomfortable were Thompson of the Golden State Warriors and Zach LaVine of the Minnesota Timberwolves, who fidgeted with the buttons on their slim-fitting suits and shifted around backstage nervously. As for why modeling in front of a few hundred fans in the rundown Hammerstein Ballroom is more nerve-racking than competing in front of his 19,000-plus home crowd at the Target Center, Thompson said, “We’ve been playing basketball since we were little so that comes naturally. But it’s not every day that you’re on the catwalk.

“It’s important to get out of your comfort zone,” he said, pressing his Alba three-piece suit with his palms. And if designers start sending him freebies, so be it. “Hopefully they will. I love free clothes. But I’m not running out to get the latest shoes,” said Thompson, glancing down at his Ferragamo slip-ons.
Later when James inquired about a post-runway on-air chat with LaVine, a 19-year-old rookie, a TNTer told him, “We’re not talking to Zach. He’s too young to be in the lounge.”
