Inside the NBA’s New Style Wars: For their April/May 2013 issue, GQ highlighted some of the NBA’s most stylish players.

The rivalry among the NBA’s elite has spilled off the court and into an arena where athletes have historically feared to tread: high fashion. Players show up for games wearing leather pants, lensless glasses, and printed silk shirts—and that’s just Russell Westbrook. GQ’s Steve Marsh spent a week trailing basketball’s biggest names—Kevin Durant, Kobe, D-Wade, LeBron—to find out how they’re turning the league into a runway for the world’s tallest peacocks

Check out Russell Westbrook, Kevin Durant, Kobe Bryant, Dwyane Wade, LeBron James, Chris Bosh, Steve Nash, and Amar’e Stoudemire photographed by Eric Ray Davidson.
