  These days, NBA postgame press conference fashion has been taken to some crazy extremes and over the weekend, Indiana Pacers Roy Hibbert came close to making an epic fashion choice. After the Pacers game three win over the New York Knicks, Hibbert planned to don one of the most rich-people accessories of all-time: a monocle. Check out the below tweet of Roy with his monocle courtesy of  TNT’s Rachel Nichols: NBA fashion game – Pacers Roy Hibbert and the monocle he brought to the podium. #UppingTheAnte @hoya2apacer twitter.com/Rachel__Nichol… — Rachel Nichols (@Rachel__Nichols) May 12, 2013 Sadly, Hibbert got talked out of wearing it by teammate Paul George: “I asked my teammate Paul (George) if I should do this. This is my first time at the podium basically all year. I know a lot of people always wear crazy get-ups and stuff like that, so I said to myself before the game, ‘I’m going to have a great game tonight.’ “I was advised by Paul George and David Benner not to set a trend by wearing a monocole, so I’m not putting on the monocle,” said Hibbert. For those of you wondering what happened to the monocle, Hibbert tossed it to one of the reporters after his interview has been completed. *** Hibbert brings monocle to podium [Larry Brown Sports]

This has been said before, but the NBA’s preoccupation with fashion has gotten out of control. Eyewear, in particular, has taken on an oddly meta presence at postgame news conferences, with everyone from LeBron James on down doing their best Clark Kent impression.

Roy Hibbert has his moment

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...

Roy Hibbert almost sets new fashion trend by bringing monocle to post-game presser

 Lately, it's been a trend for NBA players to wear something avant-garde to post-game press conferences during the playoffs (remember Russell Westbrook's crazy fish bait shirt and red glasses last year?)
