Forget Dwayne Wade's jacket, Iman Shupert's shoes, and LeBron James's sweater. Indiana Pacers star Roy Hibbert has taken the NBA fashion war to a whole new level.
Well--to be fair he almost did.
Monocle are cool, right?
ESPN's Rachel Nichols shared this pic with her Twitter followers of what Roy was thinking of wearing to the podium after leading the Pacers to a 81-72 win over the New York Knicks.

Common sense prevailed and Hibbert went without the Colonel Klink look, but he did provide the press corp with a little humor at the start of his time at the podium by talking about it and why he almost wore it.
Do you hear that LeBron, D-wade, Iman, Russell (although he seems to be dressing much better since he's been injured), and whoever else?
BEST OF MAXIM
Roy Hibbert nearly took NBA postgame fashion to the next level on Saturday, but he was talked out of making his bold statement.
Hibbert said after the Indiana Pacers’ 82-71 win over the New York Knicks in Game 3 of their Eastern Conference semifinal series that he envisioned having a good game and speaking before the media at the podium. He says he brought a monocle with him to...
When the Portland Trail Blazers offered Roy Hibbert a max $58.4 million, four-year deal it seemed like it was asking a lot from a one-time All Star who had a strong start to the shortened 2012 season, but struggled to the end. Hibbert was improving and had become a good player, but perhaps not someone you throw a max contract at and build a team around.
There were concerns when...
LeBron James was shoved to the floor as the testy series between the Heat and the Bulls boiled over in the second quarter of Game 3.
James took exception to an intentional foul by Chicago's Nazr Mohammed and flailed at him, which provoked the Bulls big man to floor James with a two-handed shove to the chest.
Mohammed was ejected while James received a technical foul, however...
Nate Robinson may have been blessed with talent rather than height, and the man sure knows what to do with his talent. The 5'9" guard proved that once again Friday night with a block on LeBron James as the superstar was trying to go up for a layup.
As icing on the cake, King James was knocked to the floor in the process and a foul was called on Dwayne Wade!
The physical nature of the Heat-Bulls second-round series -- which was on prominent display in Game 2 -- was evident again during Game 3 on Friday night in Chicago.
During the second quarter, Bulls center Nazr Mohammed planted a hard foul on Heat star LeBron James. James responded by pushing off Mohammed after being wrapped up.
Mohammed escalated events when, after picking himself...
After the Chicago Bulls lost game three of their series against the Miami Heat, Tom Thibodeau and Nate Robinson both shared some words about Lebron James. They were talking about an incident where Nazr Mohammed shoved Lebron causing him to “fall” down. Heres what they said: “From my angle, I just saw a guy basically [...]
Chicago Bulls center Nazr Mohammed was ejected from Game 3 of the Eastern Conference semifinals against the Miami Heat on Friday night after shoving LeBron James to the court.
As James dribbled up the floor early in the second quarter, Mohammed reached in and tried to steal the ball near midcourt. Their arms got tangled and Mohammed fell.
He then got up and shoved James to the...
After blocking Yao Ming when he was a member of the New York Knicks, Nate Robinson already proved that his short stature doesn’t mean he can’t swat an opponent. Watch as Nate chases down a LeBron James lay-up attempt in game three of the Heat/Bulls second round playoff series:
CHICAGO (AP) -- LeBron James came on strong down the stretch to finish with 25 points, Chris Bosh added 20 points and 19 rebounds, and the Miami Heat followed up the most lopsided playoff win in franchise history with a 104-94 victory over the Chicago Bulls on Friday night to take a 2-1 lead in the Eastern Conference semifinals.
Norris Cole scored 18, and the Heat pulled out a tight...
So far in game three between the Chicago Bulls and the Miami Heat, things are getting a little shovey.
First, Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah pushes Miami center Chris Anderson to the ground which warranted a technical for Noah and then, Chicago Bulls center Nazr Mohammed shoves LeBron James to the ground.
Nazr’s shove earned him an ejection and apparently, flopping still exists...
Tom Thibodeau spoke his mind about the NBA’s refs, and in return, the Bulls’ head coach’s wallet will be a little lighter on Sunday.
The NBA fined Thibodeau $35,000 for comments that were critical of the refereeing in Game 3 of the Bulls-Heat series, according to the league’s official release. Thibodeau wasn’t happy with a call that got Nazr Mohammed ejected from the game...
The suggestion that he's a flopper drew a grin as wide as his wingspan from LeBron James.
Miami's superstar shot down the accusations from the Chicago Bulls, saying they reminded him of the days when some claimed he was overrated and questioned his ability to lead a team to a championship.
''It's kind of the same (as when) I heard people say I was overrated...
