Hornets Hype

In a basement. In our pajamas.

So last night after the Lakers defeated the Nuggets in Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals, I fell asleep for like 2 hours. When I woke up, contacts sticking to my eyes, this is the first thing I saw:

Oh, you know, just had this red leather vest lying around and thought, "Wouldn't that look sweet with my madras shirt?"

Oh, you know, just had this red leather vest lying around the house and thought, "Wouldn't that look sweet with my madras shirt?"

Clearly this was some sleep-induced hallucination. Surely no one would be wacky enough to show up at an NBA press conference dressed as the really tall other half of Starsky and Hutch.

And yet Lamar Odom did. We shouldn’t be surprised. After all, we’re talking about a guy who showed up at a game last year wearing this:

lakesuit

It's a hoodie! It's a suit! It's a Lakesuit!

Like, wait, hold up. Is that…. a Laker colored suit? A Lakesuit? Or is it a hoodie? Or is it… a suit and a hoodie?

Lamar Odom strolled into the Lakers’ locker room some 25 minutes late. Lakers coach Phil Jackson had just finishing addressing the media during his pregame press session when he saw Odom and blurted out:

“Oh, my God,” Jackson said, laughing. “No wonder it took you a long time to get here.”

Jackson laughed at Odom’s outfit he was wearing. It was an all white suit. The sleeves on the coat were purple. The lapels were gold. “Are you in a marching band?” Jackson joked.

It was hard to describe what Odom was wearing. “This is indescribable,” Odom correctly said. “You can’t describe this.”

Pull up a seat, as we take a spin through the fashion world of one Lamar Odom…

This is what Lamar Odom wore to his 28th birthday party. My 28th birthday is just 2 weeks away, and now my mind scrambles, trying to figure out what I can possibly do to top this.

So fab the rest of us mere humans can't even begin to comprehend the fabulousness

URGENT AND FASCINATING UPDATE: It has come to my attention via @RealLamarOdom‘s own Twitter feed that this is also a suit/hoodie. See below!

Amazing.

Amazing.

Let’s move on…

Lamar in red

Oh, Lamar. Stop it.

Practice wear!

Cutoff sweats!

Dude. No joke. I am a huge fan of the cutoff sweats look. I used to do this in college, and my friends made fun of me. But now I can be safe in the knowledge that I was right and they were wrong.... because if Lamar Odom does it too, IT MUST BE RIGHT! (right?) Now, when it comes to those other assorted leg accessories? I can

I don’t know about you, but I love it when the sleeves of my formalwear say stuff…

Interesting sleeve action

I... don't know what that right sleeve is doing.

And…

Bowties!

Buttons... lapels... bowties... oh my.

No way… it can’t be…

hoodiesuit3

100% more terrifying than the fact that Lamar Odom owns a Laker colored suit/hoodie hybrid? The fact that HE OWNS AT LEAST THREE SUIT/HOODIES! I mean, I don't even know what to say. A suit/hoodie isn't even a real clothing item.

OMG, if you scroll down to the very last pic in this post, it appears I haveĀ  caught Lamar Odom in…. duplicate kicks! Aw. Minus ten points. I expect better!

The scrolldown...

Actually this is a really great look... until you scroll down. You cannot tell me that this man does not own a pair of purple sneakers to wear with that.

But then you take a look at some of the other stuff he wears, and damn, it looks great. See?

Niiice!

Niiice!

I approve.

Fab!

I dunno. I give up. I meant to make fun of Lamar Odom. But now I’m thinking he’s kind of my hero… You rock on, LO. Who am I to stop you?

You just be free to be you, Lamar

You just be free to be you, Lamar
