So I realize this somewhat old news, but please forgive me as I am not really an NBA fan, however, there was no way I could let this go by without covering it on my blog.
My favorite NBA player, Baron Davis (based solely on his style), was very busy during the lockout. Doing what you ask?
Mr. Davis was working on putting together a documentary about the decline of style in menswear, a subject near and dear to my heart.
The Wall Street Journal talked to him about it (via SLAM).
The documentary, “American Schlub,” is in pre-production. It takes aim at the poor sartorial standards of the American male, says Mr. Davis, who plays for the Cleveland Cavaliers. “We used to be fashion forward,” he laments. Now, “We’re more of a sweats and Ugg boots type of society,” he says. “We wanted to challenge men, from that perspective.”
I was delighted to hear he shares my feelings on Uggs! My hope is that his documentary will be successful like his others, and that men will listen, considering most take sports to heart and worship many of these athletes.
I plan on keep tabs on the production of this film, and will update you, because I personally can’t wait!
