“Don’t mind my drip.”

The phrase is the now famous tagline of Los Angeles Clippers point guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, who was recently named to the NBA All-Drip first team by League Fits, a subsidiary of SLAM Magazine. The “award” is given to the players who best put their creativity on display and consistently stretched the imagination in terms of what is and isn’t hip in the fashion world.

During his rookie season, Gilgeous-Alexander was known for posting his unique style to his Instagram, usually associated with the hashtag #DontMindMyDrip. It has become not just a fashion statement, but an Internet sensation of sorts. Even during his time at Kentucky, SGA always showcased a sense for testing the limits of what he could and could get away with wearing. Remember his NBA Draft day suit? It’s the one at the top of this article.

This was the second season that League Fits named an All-Drip team and it’s only fitting that the Drip King makes the first team as a rookie. Joining him on the first team is Chris Paul, Russell Westbrook, Kelly Oubre, and PJ Tucker. Former Louisville guard Terry Rozier was named to the second team.

Here are some examples of Gilgeous-Alexander’s exorbitant taste.

    He was and always will be one of my favorites. He showed everyone how much hard work paid off. And, he does have lots of drip.

      As you get older, “don’t mind my drip” takes on a whole new meaning…
