One of the more underrated story lines of that Super Bowl. Frank gores sock, I personally looked for it every time he stepped on the field. This, like all other dress code enforcement, is crap. Crap that is fully within the leagues right, yes, but I still don't like it. Especially for something as mundane as this.

Haha, I can just see stern with his fashion consultant, high fiving and saying, "Finally, now Joakim looks FABULOUSSSS!" Who am i kidding, MAYBE stern would go for an enthusiastic handshake.

these guys should be dressed like professionals on the bench...a shirt and tie to me isn't too much to ask for in my opinion....that being said I don't think Noah looked unprofessional at all...but these guys should be in a shirt and tie

Mods can delete this comment if they want, but I'm honestly not baiting, just saying how I feel. Stern is trying to make Black players presentable for a "white" audience (not that Noah's look could be called "Black"). The dress code was in response to players who dressed in a way that reflected the culture they came from, and Stern took issue with this because he didn't think their cultural representation was fit for the culture he was hoping to lure to the NBA. Pretty sad I think. Players should be able to express themselves.

I don't understand why it's so wrong to want people to dress in a business like matter...after all it is a business, they get paid a lot of money to work, I think it is a reasonable request to dress appropriately..If these guys weren't playing basketball they would most likely be working somewhere where they would have the same exact dress code

I mean I played high school basketball and we were required to dress with a shirt and tie to and from games..this is common in high school and college, why is it such a big issue in a professional league

I have no quarrel with what you're saying, it just smacks of the already blatantly obvious megalomania of the "angel of stern". Did he NEED to take him off the court? Could he have avoided this all together, and said something behind the scenes later? Just seems more like an exercise of power more than anything.

This is an alternative to the rule I agree with, every other sport does the same

Although, personally I don't mind shirt and tie

I agree 100%...like I said, I didn't see a problem with what Noah was wearing and a bigger deal is being made of him telling him to change than if he was left alone...if there was no request to change no one would ever even know what he was wearing

But to play devil's advocate, I guess Stern's thinking may be that if he allows one person to bend the rules (I don't know what/if specifically Noah did not follow a guideline of the dress code) than where does it stop

But again I agree, behind the scenes would of better a better way of handling the situation IMO and if it happens again and you don't like it then you fine him

ONE cannot DRESS like a professional.
If you are a professional you just are, clothing is not going to change that.

Incorrect...just because one person does not care doesn't mean no one cares

A majority of jobs in the country require they're employees to dress in a professional matter. Now people say, you can't DRESS like a professional, you obviously don't understand the concept.

Again, to reiterate my point, I do think Noah was dressed professionally in my opinion. I just don't agree they should be wearing jeans and a T-Shirt

Pre dress code days did you ever watch a game and hear someone go "man, it really bothers me how those guys are dressed on the sideline, its taking away from my enjoyment of the game" that's what I mean by no one cares. I mean the guys playing are wearing jerseys and shorts, I dont see the need for them to dress in a suit and tie.

I misunderstood your point of saying no one cares then, I do agree no one loses enjoyment of the game based on how they dress on the bench

Although, I have said you have millions of dollars and your dressed like that LOL.....but never took away my enjoyment of the game

Not sure what the outlash at Stern and the NBA is about. If there is a dress code you follow it, it's that simple. Most of us have to wear shirt and ties for our average salaray jobs 5 days a week. Yet you don't see an outcry with that. You have dress codes to get into your fav night club, yet I don't see the outcry with that either.

You're a professional athlete making millions of dollars each year. If your job paying you millions of dollars each year wants you to look like a professional, then you look like a professional. It's really that simple.

If I'm the owner of a team and I'm paying you 10 million dollars a year and all I ask when you don't play is to wear a long sleeve shirt, slacks and a tie...then F'n do it. This isn't hard people.

I'm sure if you walked into Sony/Samsung...ect, there CEO's would be as clean cut/professional looking as you get. I doubt you would see them in hoodies, designer jeans...ect.

The NBA isn't a job. It's a professional career. Theres a difference.

Those who wears a suit, & tie are a bunch of wannabee peacock's who have no individuality, & are only sheep following the flock.

dress codes are just another way to adjust everyone to following orders. You are being house trained just like you do to your new pet.

Wear what you feel like wearing & screw what others think. They are not better then you in any way.

An ultimatum is considered forcing, or cant you see that?

My problem is that before it didn't mater, & now it does, so what will they be forced to do next?

I would do it with pride because I am getting a huge load of money from a boss who expects me to act in a professional manner.

Imagine your worker wearing a silly outfit with a huge stain on his shirt. Would you want him to represent your company?

The fact is they are paid a bunch load of money to service the team. My brother works in a huge firm and has to dress professionally. By that I mean a suit and tie, nothing too fancy. He doesn't like to but show him the check and he'll wear a clown outfit if he has to. In what kind of world do you live in that you can't comprehend this simple fact?

Obviously for a crappy job with minimum wage you're not required to have a dress code. Although, some retailers have some sort of dress code. Depends.
When you work for one of the biggest companies and get paid handsomely, you are required to act and dress professionally. When you are looking for a job after graduating with a college degree, you better wear a suit and tie or you can go to that nearby fast food restaurant and stay there because you refused to dress your job preference.

My brother is unfortunately like billions of others. Really? He's dressing as a professional who makes a hefty amount of money. Here's the big picture: Unless you are the boss of a company, you better suck it up and stop whining if you want to get paid. My brother is like millions of other people because if he wasn't, he'll be like the rest of the billions of people without a handsomely paid career. Thanks and have a nice day.

So what if Noah played , got hurt and then came back to the bench like that would he have gotten fined ? I've seen way worse outfits that didn't look " professional " if Stern wants to reach . Westbrook shiny blue Mr Freeze get up on his way to the game on Sunday against the Lakers look worse than Noah's outfit . The NBA is trying too hard to change people culture. They need to tone down the dress code a bit , the fashion has changed dramatically since the early 00's . People style look more respectable now . We're talking about grown men here not children. I'm sure every player would take account about their wardrobe because they're their own business .

When you are looking for a job after graduating with a college degree, you better wear a suit and tie or you can go to that nearby fast food restaurant and stay there because you refused to dress your job preference.

My brother is unfortunately like billions of others. Really? He's dressing as a professional who makes a hefty amount of money. Here's the big picture: Unless you are the boss of a company, you better suck it up and stop whining if you want to get paid. My brother is like millions of other people because if he wasn't, he'll be like the rest of the billions of people without a handsomely paid career. Thanks and have a nice day.

Your are only looking at this as a dress code issue, but that's not the case. The dress code is mickey mouse. It is more about the loss of civil right. It is something that is happening throughout the US, ever since 911.

Look at the big picture that is going on. Look at whats going on at airports, or the fact that constitutionalists are being treated like terrorist now.

If you are educated enough you should have already seed the changes happening to our government, & if not I recommend to start paying attention.

Wait and if Westbrook wardrobe didn't have anything to do with off court , why was Stern so hard on Iverson with his off court appearance ? Eh

Simple: Because you have it good here.

Stop complaining about changes and all this garbage. Everything changes for a reason. You're speaking of conspiracy garbage that has nothing to do with anything.
Please answer my question. Did you wear a suite to your wedding? If so, you are a huge hypocrite.

Details of the dress code

Stern's dress code stated that all players must dress in business or conservative attire while arriving and departing during a scheduled game, on the bench while injured, and when conducting official NBA business (press interviews, charity events, etc.) The new dress code banned fashions most often associated with hip-hop culture, specifically: Hardwood Classics jerseys (or any other jersey), jeans, hats, do-rags, t-shirts, large jewelry, sneakers and Timberland style boots.[3]

This particular clothing is not allowed to be worn by players to interviews, games (on and off the bench), charity events, or any other occasion affiliated with the NBA or the NBDL. Violators of the dress code are fined and may be suspended with repeat offenses.[4] The dress code was developed with the intention of combating image problems that have plagued the NBA in recent history.

Under current NBA dress regulations, if a player does not dress to participate in a game, he must dress in a manner suitable for a coach. In the NBA, a suit or a sport coat is required for coaches,[3] but a necktie is not required.



This was active since 2005. It isn't new and Noah should've got fined but he was warned.

I don't think he really believes what he writes. It's more-so of him being a jealous adult who never reached the pivotal opportunity in dressing professionally.


What exactly is there to be jealous of? Some one in a monkey suit, who you can literally see is uncomfortable?

& why does your opinion, have to be better then someone else's just cause its different? Did your god make you better then everyone else? Or are you just so full of your self that you think you are better then everyone else?

I'm saying if Westbrook got hurt and came back to the game would he had have gotten fined ? It's stupid to me , there was nothing wrong with his outfit. They want every player to dress like a coach ...these are basketball players . Rose was hurt and was in warm up gear the next game when he tore his ACL he didn't get fined . The league isn't consistent at all .

Warmups are fine to wear on the bench if you're hurt. Dwight has missed a few games this year and usually he's sitting on the bench wearing his jersey and warmups. At least wearing those is consistent with what everyone else is wearing.


a. Players In Attendance At Games But Not In Uniform
Players who are in attendance at games but not in uniform are required to wear the following additional items when seated on the bench or in the stands during the game:
Sport Coat
Dress shoes or boots, and socks

And Westbrook dressing like the Scooby Doo mystery machine isn't as funny ? Black people will always be looked at as different no Matter what they wear just its not what the world wants to see . I'm not defending Iverson for what he wore but I've seen many of people dress like that and aren't " thugs " . Like I said fashion is different nowadays and the dress code should be watered down . Stern needs to stop thinking every player is going to walk in dressed in a basketball jersey and 10 chains . Those days are long gone . That's all I'm saying

But Noah was hurt , but I understand . I guess there was no need for Noah to wear warm ups because he knew he was out a few games but he warmed up before each game he was game to game .

You fail to realize that team management pressured Stern to push this new dress code.
It's simple. NBA is a business. A business should be professional at all times. Players get fined for fighting or terrible conduct. When you're getting paid millions to play basketball, take the 10 extra minutes to represent your team and do whatever you want for days you aren't required to.

You make no sense. I'm 18 and I'm required by companies to follow their dress code. I am interning at an accounting firm that requires me to come in with a suit and tie. The people who don't do it? They don't get the job. I'm not going to miss an opportunity of a life time because I can't get over the fact that I will have to stop wearing jeans.

Actually, you shouldn't be discussing with my parents. I feel you are too emotionally attached to this topic that you feel I'm insulting you. In this day and age, go out and find a great paying job without a dress code. Good luck.

oh ok, that explains everything. You are not old enough to have witnessed the tyranny that has overcome our country since the early 70's, & then went into overdrive after 911.

By the way I am 42 years old & my parents fled Cuda in the late 60's after the so called Savior Fidel Castro liberated cuba. just to immediately band guns, & turn the Cuban population into slavery.
So I know what a communistic controlled dictatorship looks like.

I refuse to take you seriously when you compare the United States to Cuba...I really wish people like you could appreciate the country you live in .. If you were in a country that is a dictatorship like you claim the USA is then you would be hauled off and killed for speaking out against your country and it's officials

Instead you live in the great country of the USA where idiots like you can say whatever the **** you want no matter how dumb and uneducated you are

It is crazy to think that you somehow believ people shouldn't have to abide by rules.. So people in your cleaning company don't do there job and go to the mall instead of working.. Is that ok?? Or would you fire them?? If you do, then your a facist dictator according to you , if not your just a moron

Contrary to what you think, it's a privilege to play professional sports not your god given right, so if you want to play you abide by the rules just like any other business

Yea. This has been around for years now.

Back then, they had idiots wearing 5 XL t shirts looking like idiots from the hood. Stern wanted to present the business to make it appealing.
