KNICKS “KID REPORTERS” TALK POOR FASHION CHOICES WITH PLAYERS

Posted on November 18th, by HeatherZeller in BLOG. No Comments

The New York Knicks “Kid Reporters,” Ryan and Jaylah, caught up with the team during media day to discuss a hot topic in the off-court conversation: fashion. The Knicks typically rank among the NBA’s most stylish squads, with sartorial stars like Carmelo Anthony, Tyson Chandler and Amar’e Stoudemire. Though team members have received praise for their fashion statements outside the game, those clothing choices have been matched by some questionable attire.

When the kids asked players to name the “worst piece of clothing you’ve ever seen a teammate wear,” most agreed upon Shumpert’s “skirt” or kilt and Stoudemire’s UGG boots. Tyson Chandler’s infamous New York Fashion Week ensemble is also highlighted among the greatest fashion faux pas for a teammate.
