When Kevin Garnett was with the Celtics, he had a nickname for Rajon Rondo: Swag. Rondo’s style choices were unmatched on the team — not better or worse, just different. While Paul Pierce preferred three-piece suits and Garnett had a soft spot for sweaters, Rondo’s fashion is a little more out there. The only NBA player who might be more daring with his outfits is Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook.
