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?
Wild. And not in a good way.
