This year’s NBA draft provided us with some exceptional talent, as well as a display of eccentric fashion sense. First, it was Wesley Johnson with his odd choice of red-checkered trousers.
Then Clippers draftee Al-Farouq Aminu showed his opinion that contacts are overrated by wearing a set of spectacles that would make Benjamin Franklin proud.
Apparently Geek Eyewear took notice, as the vision-correcting company has signed Aminu to an endorsement deal. It’s not Nike, but who looks at a 6’11 guy’s shoes anyway? It’s all about the business up front.
Now that Aminu is officially part of the ‘Geeks Got Game’ ad campaign, it’s fitting that he make a bold fashion statement right away.
Not sure I’ll take advice on his poolside attire, but the glasses do look pretty snazzy.
