About This Quiz

Athletes have rarely been natural fashion plates. The earliest athletes of them all, the ancient Greek Olympic athletes, trained and competed in the nude, so there wasn't much room for them to throw on a designer tunic. Even in this age when athletic clothing is the norm, some athletes have a physical makeup that makes it difficult for them to find clothing that fits, let alone clothing that fits and is fashionable. Of course, money helps. Some shoe companies cut off their size choices at US men's size 13, but if you make 15 million dollars a year from your contract to play in the NBA, and you appear on television several times a week and in the papers nearly every day, it's a lot easier to persuade clothiers to try making something in your size.

In their day, Wilt Chamberlain, Dr. J and Walt Frazier all wore tailored suits, but no one would say their choices would dictate fashion for men the world over. The 1990s saw a dark age for much of men's fashion, with suits that couldn't decide on which decade they belonged — beige, beige, and beige. And then there was the rebel: Dennis Rodman. Sure, few would want to imitate his style, but it was a breath of fresh air. Pretty soon, other players began to experiment with style, and then the pro stylists descended on the NBA. Nothing would ever be the same again. Where do you fit in the style pantheon of the NBA? Take this quiz and find out!
