Apparently, the suit shorts LeBron James wore ahead of Game 1 of the NBA Finals was a one-time deal. Obviously, that decision didn’t work out, so the Cavaliers once again went back to a different, albeit a known strategy ahead of Game 2, as the players showed up wearing matching suits once again.
Unlike some of the other iterations of this recent trend, these suits appeared to be straight out of the movie “Men in Black.”

The only thing missing there are some holstered alien blasters and Neutralizers for each player.
Twitter had some funny reactions to this latest effort at team unity by the Cavaliers.
Sorry. This is the first time I’ve watched one of these videos. Why are they all wearing ear pieces? Is it like a team requirement or are they all just listening to their own thing?

Who keeps stealing the rest of their pants?

Poor @KyleKorver – Looks like tailor left his pants about 3 or 4 inches too short.

Some fans remembered that this trend hasn’t exactly led to success on a regular basis.
What’s our record when we wear suits again? What happened last game, because we wore suits?

Not these suits again

THE. L. IS. CONFIRMED.

Then there were a few fans who only cared about one thing.
Perhaps because of all that, it was pretty stunning when James himself wore yet another edition of his suit shorts outfit from Game 1.
