Aminu Gets Steezy for His Clippers Debut

As expected in the Los Angeles Clippers 2010 debut all eyes would be focused on Blake Griffin, but not if rookie Al-Farouq Aminu had anything to do with it.

Aminu, who was the 8th pick in the 2010 draft by the Clippers, had a great freshmen year at Wake Forest before signing an agent in April and entering the draft. In what I am hoping was some sort of publicity stunt, Aminu showed up to his first game as an NBA player sportin' his team colors in a "Dumb and Dumber-esque" get up (as seen below).

Even though he didn't have the top hat to match, needless to say, Al-Farouq got some attention of his own. Unfortunately for him it was mostly fashion police rather than reporters seeking out interviews.

With that being said, I ask you this... What's worse? This suit (that clearly is neither functional nor fashionable) or that Aminu didn't play a minute of this game? Probably this suit... Better luck next time rookie. For now, just focus on your game and let your playing doing the talking, not your outfits.
