Top 15 Best Dressed NBA Players

In 2005, the NBA introduced a dress code. The dress code was put in place to help clean up the NBA's image.  The dress code made it mandatory for players to wear a jacket and a tie before games, after games, during interviews, on the bench while injured and in attendance at league charity events. At that time, the dress code irritated the players but as time went on, it became easier as the players adjusted and started to embrace it.

Over the years, players have taken to the dress code and have started to dress up in places other than the NBA mandated areas. Fashion has become a serious interest for many NBA players and some have been spotted in New York Fashion Week. Some players have gotten involved as they either have collaborated or designed menswear collections, tie collections, watches, etc... Others have made fashion statements with their outfits. Hiring a fashion stylist is becoming crucial as players want to be noticed in other areas besides the basketball world.  Fashion is not just mixing into NBA players lives but becoming one of the various ways they can make a name for themselves.

There are many NBA players who dress well. There are a few that don't. However, there are a couple of players who dress well and do so regularly.  Listed below are the top 15 players who are the best dressed among all the players. Most of the names are stars or superstars in their own right and to them dressing well is very important.

Dwyane Wade is an NBA star who has proven to be a winner on the court. Like the other players before him he has many off-court interests. Fashion is one of them. He has become one of the famous best dressed players in the league. He is ranked no.1 on this list because numerous players have Dwyane Wade as their top choice as the best dressed player. In 2011,  SI asked 137 NBA players who had the best fashion sense and Wade came in first. Wade has also been on many best dressed lists and recently had a couple of worst dressed moments like Russell Westbrook. What separates Wade from Westbrook is that Dwyane Wade has been on the best dressed list for years and until Russell Westbrook catches up, the title of best dressed player goes to Dwyane Wade.
