Nick Young, known for not only his skills on the basketball court but also his distinctive fashion sense, made a bold statement during the USC alumni game. Despite his lengthy NBA career and current involvement in leagues like the Big 3 and Drew League, Young still finds opportunities to showcase his game and entertain the crowd.
During his three seasons with the Trojans, Young earned a reputation as a sharpshooter and an athletic finisher. His notable contributions helped USC secure a Sweet 16 appearance, and he is warmly welcomed back to the Galen Center whenever he returns to play.
The USC alumni game featured several famous legends, and Young was no doubt delivering buckets and deep three-pointers to the delight of the audience. However, in addition to his on-court skills, Young grabbed attention with his choice of wardrobe.
While donning his signature number 1 practice jersey and LeBron 20 sneakers, Young opted for a bold fashion choice in the form of jean shorts, also known as ‘jorts.’ The combination of denim and comfort has been gaining popularity this summer, especially in sunny California, where it allows people to stay cool while sporting a denim look. Swaggy P, as he is fondly known, embraced this trend wholeheartedly, even wearing ‘jorts’ during the game.
Basketball has seen various fashion trends come and go, such as ninja headbands and short shorts, which have left a lasting impact on the game’s style. With Young’s flair for unique fashion choices, it wouldn’t be surprising to see the next generation of hoopers following his lead and embracing ‘jorts’ as a new trend in the basketball world.
