The 10 Best Dressed Athletes of the '90s

9. Larry Johnson

Larry Johnson wins the prize for best dressed draft day portrait. Along with a trippy paisley print tucked into white trousers and some crisp kicks, LJ is also sporting the gold front tooth that became his signature accessory on and off the court. These days, NBA players accessorize with tights, pads, and sleeves. Twenty years ago LJ was leading the Hornets with gold all in his grill. Take one guess which era we prefer.

But his most infamous sartorial choice is the the outfit he sported as his alter ego Grandmama in a Converse campaign and on Family Matters. Goddamn do we miss the '90s. Do you think Lebron or any other current professional NBA player would have the cajones to cross-dress for a national advertising campaign in a floral number with pearls and a gold capped tooth and subsequently dunk on suckas?
