UPDATE, 6/10: Ladies and gentlemen, we have a winner! And a new king: D’Angelo Russell is 2019’s most stylish NBA player. While knocking off last year’s winner—and all-around style Hall of Famer—LeBron James is certainly a feat, it’s not necessarily all that surprising. Because while Russell had a breakout year with the Brooklyn Nets, the lefty also upped his style game considerably, mixing up designer gear, slick suiting, and a solid dose of super-2000s throwbacks. An upset? Maybe. Well-deserved? Absolutely. Check out our roundup of Russell’s strongest looks here, and we’ll see you this time next year for Year Three of GQ’s NBA Style Showdown.


UPDATE, 6/7: Well, this just got interesting! We knew that our second NBA Style Showdown was heading toward an interesting conclusion, with two generational battles (LeBron and D-Wade, Kelly Oubre Jr. and D’Angelo Russell) in the semifinals. And now here we are, on the other side of Round Three, with a final contest of epic proportions staring us in the face. In the veteran corner: LeBron James, savior of Akron, pride of Los Angeles, the largest customer in Thom Browne’s Rolodex. In the young gunner department: D’Angelo Russell, prince (for now) of Brooklyn, devoted Air Force 1 owner. They both battled hard to get this far—LeBron dispatched his old buddy Dwyane, while Russell knocked off no less than James Harden—and they’ll face off in a generationally significant finals. Voting kicks off today at noon, and will run for 24 hours, with the winner announced on Monday. Will LeBron defend his crown? Or will the lefty from King’s County become royalty? There’s only one way to find out.

UPDATE, 6/6: In the immortal words of Mike Breen, BANG! Round Two of the 2019 NBA Style Showdown is in the books, and with it two upsets of epic proportions. Kelly Oubre Jr. took out the NBA’s King of Funk Russell Westbrook, while D’Angelo “Most Improved On and Off the Court” Russell easily handled former GQ cover star James Harden, taking 62% of the votes. It wasn’t all upsets, though: LeBron James and Dwyane Wade made easy work of their second-round competition. Now, the bracket is neatly divided between the dudes who first made NBA style a topic worth obsessing over a decade ago and the young guns who have taken the baton and run the fast break with it. In Round Three, the former Heat teammates LeBron James and Dwyane Wade will head-to-head, and Russell and Oubre Jr. will tangle on the other side. Voting kicks off today at noon and will run for a full 24 hours.
