If you been watching any of the postgame press conference during these NBA playoffs, chances are you have seen a particular fashion statement being made by various players -- the geek look. You know, shirts buttoned up to the top, thick rimmed eye-glasses, suspenders, and much more. You might swear Steve Urkle of Family Matters was taking questions from the media.

There is no doubt, the "geek-look" is here to stay and the poster child of this has to be Oklahoma City Thunder's Kevin Durant. It's quite often KD will rock the eye-glasses, wear bow-ties, and have a school boy's backpack during a press conference.

And it is because of this look, Durant was voted the nerdiest in the NBA by Time Magazine.

Writer Sean Gregory applauded Durant's geek-chic wardrobe (backpack, horn-rimmed glasses, plaid shirt buttoned to the collar) as being a trendsetter. Teammate Russell Westbrook has picked up the look as well as LeBron James, Dwight Howard, Amar'e Stoudemire, Dwyane Wade and Andre Iguodala. Nike is scheduled to produce various Durant-inspired backpacks this fall. Gregory wrote in Time's May 14 issue: “In Durant, the NBA has an ideal frontman for the geek-chic craze.”

Kind of a no-brainer pick seeing how KD started the geek-look but his teammate, Russel Westbrook, takes it to a whole other level. Who can forget this look Westbrook showcased recently.
