The NBA finals kicked off last Thursday night, and before either the Miami Heat or the San Antonio Spurs bask in the glory of being 2013′s national champions, we’re taking a moment to recognize the league’s tall drinks of water for other skills: their ability to dress.

NBA fans have seen quite a bit of style showboating this season. As pro ball’s finest rock shirts and socks with lively prints, super-tailored Tom Ford suits, unique spectacles, and bright and/or studded footwear, there’s no question that this group of millionaires are becoming more comfortable flaunting their personalities off the court than ever before. And they wield trend-setting power, too; players like Dwyane Wade, Russell Westbrook and Carmelo Anthony have helped draw massive attention to the outfits they sport from the car to the locker room and during post-game interviews by getting creative with high-end designer pieces.

A few weeks ago, Memphis guard Mike Conley wore a wooden bow-tie during an NBA interview. Getting into the designer suits business, Steve Nash is partly responsible for launching a line of slacks and jackets with Canadian brand Indochino. Rajon Rondo took an internship at GQ last year, and both he and Amar’e Stoudemire – who’s out here all BFFing with Anna Wintour – have appeared on Joan Rivers’ Fashion Police. Roy Hibbert even brought a monocle to the podium after a Pacers win last month, but then thought better of actually wearing it.

The question, however, is did these pro athletes make our list? Take a look at the gallery above to see each player’s fashion taste, and cast your vote in the poll below to weigh in on who has the flyest threads.
