The Most Stylish Players in the 2016 NBA Finals

This evening is the seventh and final game of the NBA Finals, where the Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers will face off once again for the championship (they played each other last year, and Golden State won).

Tonight in Oakland, Calif., star athletes Stephen Curry and LeBron “The King” James will lead Golden State and Cleveland, respectively, through a series expected to be rife with blood, sweat and tears. 

Although their MVPs are stylish, both teams possess impressively stylish rosters overall — check out the Cavs’ sneaker shot on Instagram. Whether you prefer Cavs player Iman Shumpert, with his ever-changing hairdo (he recently ditched his trademark flattop for a dreaded man bun), or Draymond Green, with his all-green ensembles, we’ve selected the most stylish players set to take the court tonight. 

Game 7 of the NBA Finals airs Sunday, June 19, at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.

Stephen Curry

MVP Stephen Curry boasts an impressive game — both on the court and in fashion. You would be surprised, however, to learn that the baller prefers fast-fashion brands, such as Express (where he was a brand ambassador), to those high-end designer clothes. See, even multimillionaires can shop modestly. Photo: Getty Images / Instagram.com

LeBron James

“King” James is widely considered the best active player in the world — and he’s also the highest paid. Like in his playing, James’ style is flashy: He always has about $1 million on his wrists in the form of Hermes leather bracelets, Cartier jewelry and a big, fat gold watch with diamonds. He’s also one of few men who can pull off wearing a fedora. Props, King. Photo: Getty Images / Instagram.com

Andre Iguodala

Warriors’ player Andre Iguodala has one of the most fashion-forward Instagram accounts, where he’s often seen with his son (also named Andre) in complementary outfits. The duo are so quintessentially “GQ” that it’ll blow your mind. Photo: Getty Images / Instagram.com

Kevin Love

Cavaliers’ No. 0 player, Kevin Love, is notably one of the sexiest men in the NBA, once posing nude on the cover of ESPN’s Body Issue in 2015. He looked good. Love comes from a family of athletes — his father is a former L.A. Laker — and has an all-American look. Check out his patriotic off-court style and enviable mustache.

Draymond Green

Just like his last name, Warriors’ power forward player loves the color green. Like, really, really. Having attended Michigan State University, the green Spartan — aka “Money 23 Green” — still reps his school’s color. He has a green suede vest, bright-green sneakers and even a winter coat with a prominent, green fur collar. That’s fashion dedication at it’s very finest. Photo: Getty Images / Instagram.com

Kyrie Irving

Cavs’ point guard Kyrie Irving has more shoes than you have — or anyone else on this planet has. He not only has his very own style Nike basketball shoe but also has just a million other brightly colored sneakers (which can be seen on his Instagram account). Perhaps his flashiest shoes are a pair of golden dunks. Those can’t be cheap… Photo: Getty Images / Instagram.com

Klay Thompson

Warriors’ player Klay Thompson has a reserved style. Though he’s often in Nike-decked athleisure, the dude can also pull off a three-piece suit unlike any other baller. Oh, he also has a really, really cute Bulldog named Rocco. Photo: Getty Images / Instagram.com

J.R. Smith

J.R. Smith (also a fellow bulldog owner) is among the top five most tattooed NBA players, apparently having “lost count” after 70 tattoos. However, each drawing has a deep, personal meaning to Smith — and some of his ink is pretty impressive. Just take a look at the mural on his back. Photo: Getty Images / Instagram.com

Andrew Bogut

The 7-foot-tall Andrew Bogut was born and raised in Australia before playing for the Warriors in 2012. Bogut often has the same swag off the court as he does on it — Nike T-shirts and shorts. So it is always a very pleasant surprise when the baller shows up at a press conference wearing a nicely tailored suit and dress shoes. Photo: Getty Images / Instagram.com

Iman Shumpert

With his signature flattop hairdo and a wardrobe filled with designer clothes, Iman Shumpert is one of the most expressive athletes in the NBA. Off the court, Shumpert’s style is far from casual — he often wears “concepty” clothes, experimenting with layers and vibrant colors. But perhaps his best look was during Halloween, when he dressed in pink latex as the character Lollipop from Ice Cube’s film Friday After Next. Check it out. Photo: Getty Images / Instagram.com
