David Beckham’s Courtside Clothes: Mad For Plaid
So far, the Lakers’ 2010 post-season campaign has seen DBeck’s love for beverages and plaid. In fact, he’s now so well-adjusted in America that he has quite a collection of colourful and patterned button-downs to show for his “dual” citizenship. We might even go out on a limb and say David passes for the average basketball fan. With a stellar side-eye stare/sneer to boot as well.
Of course, we don’t rely too heavily on scientific methodology. In fact, we only use photographic evidence. However, we offer you the wear-to-win ratio of to prove our plaid hypothesis:
- November 18, 2008: W, 116 – 109 over Chicago Bulls
- November 30, 2008: W, 112 – 99 over Toronto Raptors
- December 16, 2008, W 116 – 114 over New York Knicks
Just this week, boot-strapped Beckham went 2-for-2 in chequered choices and Lakers’ wins. Like we said, it isn’t scientific but Brooklyn and Cruz sure are cute. And that counts for something, right?
