I have a weak spot for post-game press conferences; I just can’t get enough. And the last few nights of the NBA playoffs have not disappointed. Nick Young of the Los Angeles Clippers set the Internet on fire when he showed up post-game in this memorable shirt. Then came Rajon Rondo of the Boston Celtics with this double-breasted jacket two nights ago.
Where had I seen these looks before? Aha! Both were channeling their love for the WWF of the 1980s (ummmm…maybe I meant my love for the WWF in the 80s). Both looks are vintage Captain Lou Albano and Jesse “The Body” Ventura, a nickname that still holds up 30 years later as one of the all-time greats.
I love that Cyndi Lauper is hanging out with this old wrestler circa 1984 and it goes to show how popular wrestling was at its height.
Getting back to business, if the old adage to “dress for success” holds up, it looks like Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook will be bring a title to Oklahoma City. As you can see, they were all business last week after sweeping the defending champ, the Dallas Mavericks.
