The NBA dress code established in 2005 prevented players like Allen Iverson from dressing in ways that the league did not like, but as GQ profiled, these rules spurred a fashion revolution that has made players’ clothing choices almost as newsworthy as their play.

Ahead of the bubble last season, the league modified and loosened the dress code. Players are no longer required to wear sports jackets on the bench.

This has only added to the high-profile clothing choices of some players.

With the tunnel entrance walkway to the locker room in mind, Rush Order Tees put together a survey to see what fans thought of different players’ fashion. In it, the Oklahoma City Thunder got some love — and also some hate.

Lu Dort’s clothing was rated the edgiest in the league. Thirty-two percent of his outfits were voted as edgy, the highest number in the league.

He edged out LeBron James, who received a 30% on his fits.

Darius Bazley was called the fourth-freshest, with voters calling 40% of his looks fresh.

Ahead of Bazley was RJ Barrett, Norman Powell and Nicolas Batum.

However, it’s clear that voters have never really seen Shai Gilgeous-Alexander out of uniform.

It was said that the star Thunder guard’s outfits are the fourth-most trash in the league, behind James Harden, Patty Mills and Tyler Herro.

We can’t say we agree with that verdict.

Shockingly enough, Aleksej Pokusevski wasn’t listed in any of the categories. One would think that his fanny pack alone would put him into a category like vibrant, or perhaps hard-to-pull-off, or maybe even questionable (not that we would ever question it ourselves).

Overall, the Thunder were tied for the 10th-best look overall.

Rush Order Tees conducted the study by collecting photos of pregame outfits for the six players with the most minutes on every NBA team. Each individual player had no fewer than five outfits and no more than 10 in the photo album.

In total, there were 27,925 votes on 1,117 NBA pregame outfits.

Chicago Bulls wing Garrett Temple was voted the best-dressed, while former Thunder players James Harden and Serge Ibaka were named the worst- and second-worst-dressed, respectively.
