When you have more money than you know what to do with it.

I think he might have been able to pull it off if the sleeves were even a semi-reasonable length, but if they were it wouldn't have drawn the attention that it did.

If celebrities and media normalized what Kuzma just wore, we would not even blink.

Having said that, what the heck is he wearing?

Yes and no. While "some" rappers or athletes can get away with "influencing" fashion most NBA players can't and do not.
Westbrook is a prime candidate for thinking he's a fashion mogul.

Kyle Kuzma has no doorknobs: confirmed.
9. Similarly, IF THOU HAST SPENT the entire offseason predicting that thy team will stink, thou shalt not gloat, nor even be happy, shouldst thou turn out to be correct. Realistic analysis is fine, but be a fan first, a smug smarty-pants second.

I don't watch the fashion shows, but from the pictures I've seen, this seems to align with fashion shows. They always looked like a way to just look as outrageous as possible.

That team desperately needs to trade for Ibaka as a team fashion consultant/power forward.

The expression that I opt for is that you can go to school, but you can't teach class.

As for Kuzma, I don't care for what he wore one iota.
The colour, knit pattern, oversized/baginness were all totally fine, but the sleeves being 8" past his finger tips is ludicrous.
Some believe that fashion does not have to equal fashion and there is merit to that, but being unable to utilize your hands seems like a steep impediment. Imagine driving to the game for example, it's one thing to have a garment a couple of inches oversized and bunching it up onto your wrists and arms, but this is pretty silly.

At times like these I have to wonder if life is passing me by because I just dont get this. Am I just out of touch? Is this high fashion and Im just not getting it?
