Being an NBA player at fashion week means that you'll be surrounded by tons of journalists and celebrity-watchers who probably have no idea who you are. Sure, you'll attract bewildered stares on account of your height, but it's the real-deal celebrities like Nicki Minaj and Kanye West and fashion celebrities like Terry Richardson who get the incessant Instagramming.
But that didn't stop the NBA, helmed by New York's two teams, from showing up in solid numbers this week. This year wasn't the first time that the only men who could could tower over Karlie Kloss in heels have scored seats at Lincoln Center. Miami Heat superstar guard Dwyane Wade found himself in a Vogue sandwich between Wintour and Hamish Bowles two years ago in the front row at Rag & Bone while New York Knicks center Tyson Chandler is a regular in the front row.
