Nowadays when NBA players are on the sideline they are required to
wear suits. The coaches suits and ties. Personally I like the
professional look.

IIRC so did Bobbie Fisha; he had some v strong things to say regarding
correct attire when engaging in the 'high' game (can't find the quote)
mind you, he had some pretty strong things to say about other matters
too - meanwhile - here's a tad more on the topic of po-jama people
courtesy of Mr Zappa (his take on Catholic girls is a bit interesting

Some people's hot
Some people's cold
Some people's not very
Swift to behold
Some people do it
Some see right through it
Some wear pyjamas
If only they knew it

More lyrics:


Early in his career, Bobby dressed like the kid he was. T-shirts and
sweaters, jeans. See the discussion here (next to last paragraph):

Someone above mentioned power dressing. Dressing sloppily against a
competitor expensively attired puts you at a psychological
disadvantage. A power player can afford to dress in the best clothes.

Someone else above pointed out you can dress comfortably in fine
clothes. Sloppy dressers think nice clothes are uncomfortable because
they've only ever worn cheap, off-the-rack suits.
