“Keep doing your thing. I’m watching.” The message was from NBA Hall of Famer Allen Iverson, a player that Thomas lists on his NBA Mount Rushmore and the player whom most undersized guards of this generation aspire to be like. “It was real early in the morning that he texted, like 8:30, so he must have been watching highlights [of the Minnesota game] or something,” Thomas said, unable to muffle a smile. “I told him, ‘I appreciate it and that I’m just trying to be like you.’ He was like, ‘Say no more.’ Those texts man, it just motivates me to keep going. Someone like that is watching me without me even reaching out to him, so I guess I’m doing something right.”

But the relationship between Iverson and Thomas truly blossomed at All-Star weekend in Toronto in February, when Iverson sought out Thomas at an NBA event. “[Iverson] came over and talked to me for like 30 minutes, just about how big of a fan he was of me,” Thomas said. “And people can say that, but then he was even doing my moves. He was like, ‘I like that move, the little hesitation move to the right.’ And that’s when I realized that he’s not just saying it, he watches my game.”

The new fashion statements from NBA players in the era of the dress code were unique and fascinating. But critically for NBA executives, they weren’t threatening. “Hip-hop’s place within corporate America, it signified streets, ‘ghetto,’ and pathology,” Leonard says. “Westbrook, and others, through their connections with the fashion world, have been able to connect their sartorial choices with industry, with fashion, and with a world of art. Westbrook has been able to paint his sartorial choices as an artistic intervention, a sign of creativity, whereas Iverson and others were seen as expressing ‘thuggery’ and ‘danger.’”
