I watch a lot of NBA games, and selected 2 Lakers legends who I have seen regularly wear suits. Who do you think looks better in a suit. For me, both guys look like true gentlemen when all dressed up and have an amazing smile . So, its hard for me to decide. I leave the choice to you guys:

Magic Johnson:

Shaquelle O'neal:

Based on those two pictures I would say Shaq. I don't like the polo shirt and suit look that Magic Johnson is wearing in the photo.

I know that Shaquille O'Neil is a very tall man but his suits tend to look like trench coats or capes. It seems like everything he wears is oversized even for his size.

Shaq wears some crazy suits. Some of them are pretty much straight eight-year-old in dad's suit level of baggy/over-sized (that one is actually pretty conventional, exceedingly so for Shaq). It's kind of interesting. I mean, he's doing it purpose obviously. You can't just buy an off the rack suit if your Shaq's size, let alone one that fits like a kid wearing his dad's rain coat.

Gotta give him credit for bucking the trend of wearing nut cuppers and a girl's jacked that doesn't even cover your waste which is all the rage these days.

Given, it's an old pic, but they looked ridiculous then. Dress how you like, but I wouldn't be taking styling cues from either. They both make MW look slim fitting.

/thread.

Michael Jordan is another one doing the sack. Lebron isn't quite fair as he hasn't gone all soft and pudgy. Much easier to look good in clothes when you're not obese. Michael Jordan hasn't gone all obese like Magic Johnson and Shaq have but wears the same extremely baggy clothes. Maybe it's sequela from wearing those basketball shorts they wore, I don't know.

My SO has a pair of dress pants that don't fit very well, so they are a little baggy on him. I like to call them his Michael Jordan pants.
