Trick or Lockout!
Alright you got me. That's not a Halloween picture, but what that IS however, is Steve Nash not being common perception Steve Nash, so that's good enough for me as a costume picture.
Tonight, we're going to leave the grunt work in the negotiation room, and go light - really light. Here are some of your favorite NBA players in costumes (obviously not jerseys) in celebration of the one night you can be whatever you desire.
First off, New York Knicks superstar Amare Stoudemire. At first, I thought he was just being silly with the whole Jewish background thing. But maybe, it is truly in fact a legit part of his identity. Maybe.
This piece of fine art is apparently called Shaqeeta. Big ol Shaquille O'Neal is easily the most intimidating man in drag the human race can offer. Ironically, he soon got injured after this.
From one Superman to another...? C'mon Wally, you're not the Man of Steel. You're more like Aquaman, or the blue Power Ranger. A role player! Or you could have gone as a Wal Mart employee and won my heart.
Oh D-Wade, you sly character you. Just when I think the Raptors have you cornered, you always manage to sidestep this way, crossover that way, and get to the basket. So I shouldn't have been surprised when you didn't go with the stereotypical Flash costume and instead crosover'd to trying your hand at whiteface.
Marquis Daniels of the Boston Celtics - he's still with the Celts right? - gets an A+ from me for being ahead of the curve and getting a jump on preaching money saving skills to his fellow NBA peers last year.
Let's stay with the Celts for a second here and take time to admire this ensemble they've put on. I mean c'mon, just look at all that food.
P.S. Rondo's Tiger Woods such a good costume!
Rudy Gay and Ray Allen summon their inner King of Pop from different eras. Best part is that I've never seen robotic Rudy Gay look so smooth and usually smooth Ray Allen look so robotic.
And last but not least, this is Kobe Bryant stealing your soul.
Happy Halloween everybody!
