In the past few years, NBA stars like Russell Westbrook and Dwyane Wade have worn some truly bizarre outfits to and from their teams' games, including bold print shirts and extremely bright pants. As the clothes get crazier and crazier, it often seems like there is no fashion frontier.
Kudos to Memphis Grizzlies point guard Mike Conley, then, for proving that new looks still exist. Before and after the Grizzlies' exciting Game 3 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder, Conley wore a wood-brimmed hat. Take a look, for proof that such things even exist:
In his postgame news conference, Conley confirmed it was the real deal:

This is not Conley first foray into wooden clothing — he donned a wooden bow tie during last spring's playoffs. Plus, there is a tradition of wooden hats, as this wonderful website shows. Really, Conley could have gone all out and picked up a full wooden hat, not just one with the brim. The options are nearly limitless.
Your move, Mr. Westbrook.
