The ANSWER!



Allen Iverson of the Philadelphia 76ers was known for the bad guy look. Here he dressed as a true business man. I wonder how cynics feel to see "the so-called thug" dress as a professional. Every since Iverson's years in high school he has been badly sterotyped. He was called a thug because of his appearance and where he was from, the cornrows and the tattoos.

Fly Guy HILL!



Grant Hill the Duke University formal superstar is dress here as a real professional. When Hill was first drafted, majority of the NBA superstars wore their business attire. "Personally, I like it. I like to dress up. I kind of came in [the league] when it was ... sort of an unwritten code or law or whatever, that you look nice. It even got to the extreme, with guys [who] would go all out with the designer clothes and so forth. It was a little weird, the NBA turned into a fashion show. But I think it's good," said the Orlando Magics Small Foward Grant Hill.

The Sharpe Shooter



"Sometimes, getting on the plane, with distance we fly, you need to be comfortable. I think there is a way to be classy and dress up. I think the dress code should strictly [enforce] what guys wear on the bench when they are not playing. That is when guys wear on the bench when they are not playing. That is when guys are most visible. But when we are on the plane, that is when we are leisurely. I don't think that should matter. Wearing a sweat suit with a team logo on it? What sense does that make," said the Seattle Super-Sonics Ray Allen.
