The way it’s been covered this postseason, you’d think Russell Westbrook’s crazy shirts and lensless glasses are the epitome of insane NBA clothes. You’d think no one had ever seen a shirt with a million flags on it before with all the questions, clips and zingers we’ve been hearing since the start of the playoffs.
But that’s just the tip of the metaphorical zany clothes iceberg, my friends. Just listen to what Tyson Chandler is in to now, courtesy of Women’s Wear Daily by way of Complex:
“Probably the most dramatic pieces in my wardrobe would be capes,” the center reportedly said. “I wouldn’t consider myself Goth, but I love Gothic pieces,” he continued.
Capes, you guys. CAPES. Tyson Chandler wears capes. Not “cape” singular, mind you, but “capes” with an “S” as in plural. 7-foot-1 Tyson Chandler owns multiple capes. Which he wears. On purpose.
This is so far beyond Russell Westbrook that his maps shirt looks like a miniglobe. But I guess it makes sense when you consider Chandler is described in the article as an “art-loving hipster with a beard and a passion for photography and friends,” which sounds like the worst Twitter bio possible. Let’s just be glad the Knicks are already out of the playoffs, because if Tyson Chandler showed up to a game in a cape every piece of technology capable of transmitting images would literally explode with ridicule.
