Emotions ran high on Thursday night during game one of the NBA finals between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Golden State Warriors—and not just because of J.R. Smith’s eleventh-hour flub. Both basketball and style fans watched in awe (and some in shock) as the Cavs entered Oracle Arena wearing custom head-to-toe Thom Browne. Well, almost head-to-toe. The Cavs have worn the designer’s signature gray suits in the tunnel before, but this time team captain Lebron James opted for the designer’s short suit, igniting a bonfire of jokes comparing him to a wizard-in-training at Hogwarts and the UK’s Prince George. If you’re at all confused or wondering how we got so far down this menswear rabbit hole, don’t worry. We’re here to explain and hopefully answer the following questions for you. Why would James submit himself to such comic style scrutiny? And why would he and the Cavs continue to wear matching suits despite the almost curse-like effect it has had on their performance?
