These days the NBA has plenty examples of players making fashion statements, and Willie Cauley-Stein is definitely known as a guy that is interested in his style.

Tonight, he wore a pair of shoes that commemorated his time on the 2014-2015 Kentucky Wildcats team and they were ridiculously cool. I have to admit, sometimes Willie can get a little questionable with his wardrobe decisions, but these shoes looked great and were a special way to honor his former team during March Madness.

The scripting on the shoes read “Willie Cauley Stein 2014-2015 #15 #BBN #Brothers.

Cauley-Stein has established himself as solid NBA player on both ends of the floor. In 71 games played this season with the Sacramento Kings, he his averaging 12.2 points, 8.6 rebounds, and 2.5 assists.

If you follow the NBA at all you probably are used to seeing Cauley Stein’s spectacular highlights that were familiar from his time at Kentucky. His potential was always there, and it is great to see him developing at the next level.
