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.
Yikes, that looks horrible! I never thought about it before, but I guess if you're a big guy suits with high buttons do not look good. There is just too much fabric there. I agree with the other poster who said it looks like he's wearing a rain coat. I more traditional suit jacket would look much better, and definitely one that is tailored to fit his body. He does not look comfortable in that outfit.

Default Dr. J and Kareem

Dr. J was always a classy dresser in his later years. He wore conventional business suits with natural shoulders, which I think are the classiest suits. It's rare to see this level of class in the dress of today's NBA stars. Same with Kareem.

I can't pick. To being with, I'm not a fan of the shaved head. I think it diminishes from the quality of a good suit, and I find the shaved head look purely low class. I have seen Shaq and Magic wear suits with padded shoulders which I thought looked hideous. It was as if their big body was too big for their peanut heads. Magic here ads teeth that look unnaturally whitened. Too contrived.

Tremendous edge to Dr. J and Kareem.

The worst dresser that I have ever seen is Michael Jordan. He's the king of the big, padded, sloped shoulder-wear. Ugly, unflattering, pathetic. He has such poor taste in clothing.

Good God yes ... I was just thinking that if there was ever a thread on basketball legends on here, it should be about the many L's of Michael Jordan

Sportspersons are the last persons to look to when it comes to suits, unless it's someone like Beckham.

I agree with this. I've seen him wear tall, zuit suit type suits. Magic has always had good style.

Shaq has dressed better though, since becoming a tv analyst..

I know. Just put it out there for fun. I like Shaq's sense of humor though. Nobody beats Shaq daddy when it comes to guts and swag .
