In an era where basketball shorts are becoming borderline capris, one NBA player looks to bravely stand alone and reverse that trend. Newly signed Los Angeles Clipper Chris Douglas-Roberts alerted the media that he will not only sport the number 14, but that he will also revert back to the short shorts of his childhood idols.

Just imagine the 6-foot-7 Douglas-Roberts flying through the air and jamming down a Chris Paul pass in the basketball equivalent of Chubbies. Even better, picture him posterizing some chump with those shorts all up in the dude’s face. #KnobCity

With 210 NBA games already in his pocket, Douglas-Roberts’s career stat line looks much like a hand job from an ex-girlfriend: pretty subpar for the amount of time given.

Whether it rejuvenates his career or not, let’s hope this picks up steam and more players go with the retro look. Actually, let’s have the NBA revert back to everything the league was in the late ’80s and early ’90s: classic shorts, elbows to the dome if you dare drive down the lane, and Larry Legend. Those were the days.
