Crisp fabrics, dynamic duos, and pants that might remind you of your younger days…we’ve got it all and more in this week’s NBA Style Rankings.

So far, every NBA team has played at least 41 games at the halfway mark of the season. We’re far enough along to know who the ranking veterans are, but there are still more newcomers popping up every week.

Let’s look at the situations related to the last week.

Cunningham has decided to end the season after surgery on his left calf, which has been bothering him since last season. But that doesn’t mean he can’t support his team in style.

The sophomore guard is rocking a black Louis Vuitton Class of 2022 jacket. Black highlights the gray stitching on the jacket throughout. Cunningham added some Cuban link chains that work well with this fit.

Cunningham averaged career highs in points, rebounds and assists in 12 games before sitting out the season.

Halliburton took a break from his business-casual look to show Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers some love. Although Green Bay didn’t make the playoffs this season, Rodgers’ jersey is still one of the most iconic in football. The Pacers guard was born and raised in Oshkosh, Wis., about an hour south of Green Bay, so this allegiance makes sense.

He found a forest green shirt to wear under the sweatshirt that matches perfectly.

Monk is back in the rankings this week with possibly the only pink grill we’ll see all season. He was subtle about the color choice of his grill as it flows well with the pink of his button down shirt and shoes. Her chains even have splashes of color.

The Kings exceed expectations, and Monk’s charisma and personality on display here is a big reason why. He’s averaging a career-high in points and is helping in an important role off the bench.

Rozier’s debut is long overdue, and it’s all about the jacket here, that is, until you see the patches on his pants. His black jacket with colored rings comes from Jaden Smith’s brand MSFTSrep. The jeans are Evisu and with patches on the back.

Rozier took a bit of a risk because there are different colors in play, but they are all connected.

Jackson is supporting Russell Westbrook’s Honor the Gift brand for the second time in this ranking, wearing the brand’s white turtleneck. Her pants provide an interesting contrast to the decorative neckline as the main color is black with a white design.

Jackson is another player who averaged career highs this week, this time in rebounds and blocks.

The All-Star’s triple green jacket is not far from Boston green, and he paired it with dark jeans with multi-colored bow ties. Some of the butterflies even have similar green on their cardigans.

Tatum has several diamond chains to complement his “0” chain, which symbolizes his jersey number.

These Antetokounmpo pants have me feeling a little nostalgic because they remind me of my grandparents’ couch growing up. I never imagined this design would look so good on a pair of pants.

Antetokounmpo was well aware of their excitement, and all he needed was a white shirt and black chuck taylors complete compliance. Let me add that I will always accept such a beautiful watch.

Quickley’s signature jacket made him an undeniable choice. This jacket is yellow, but the lighting in the photo makes it look more orange. The Knicks guard sported sky blue lettering on the left sleeve to match his Nike Dunks.

Letterman jackets and Nike Dunks are a common theme week after week, but the combination rarely pulls off like it does here.

Brown, another regular on the rankings, came up with one of the most eye-catching sweaters yet. The blue fabric is intentionally crisp (mohair, as per the photo) which gives it a striking look. Brown accessorized with cream separates, Air Force 1s, and a black Louis Vuitton bag.

Dort closes out the week with her best jackets. The sun and brown stripes on the jacket and the Timberland boots remind me of Coogi sweaters from the 1990s. Her brown velvet sweats add to the 90s appeal.

Gilgeous-Alexander, a cousin of Nickail Alexander-Walker and another ranking vet, wore a white and blue jacket similar to the woolly look we saw with Brown. Light denim makes it easy to make the cardigan the focal point.
