Courtside Chic: Anthony’s Ebony Cover, Luol Deng’s Cleveland Tee, Dwight Howard’s GF’s ‘Laker Hater’ Sweatshirt

Lala and Carmelo Grace the Cover of Ebony Magazine’s Hottest Couple Issue

It is no secret that Carmelo and Lala Anthony are a blazing hot NBA couple – they land in the Courtside Chic headlines every week. The gorgeous couple will grace the cover of February’s Ebony magazine issue as one of the ’10 Hottest Couples.’ Another cover will feature Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey.

“There were people coming in and out of my life, diagnosis and I didn’t really know whom to trust. She was one of the people who stood by my side through thick and thick. Even to this day, viagra she’s always right there, pharm ” The Knicks forward tells Ebony. Awww. he said “thick and thick!”

Well, it looks like Lala’s “thick and thick” support is effective, because the Knicks seem to have turned a new leaf in 2014. Melo scored 34 points in an 85-89 win to the Pistons last Tuesday. According to the small forward, the Knicks are having more fun out there and trusting one another. Hmm, it looks like the dynamics of a team can be compared to that of a relationship.

Oh…and did you happen to catch Spike Lee at the Game? The director (and die-hard Knicks fan) was decked out in orange and blue, cheering on his favorite team. He “did the right thing” by choosing to attend this victorious  game. I’m still waiting for the He Got Game sequel, Spike.

Luol Deng’s Cleveland Basketball T-Shirt

I am literally typing this story in tears right now. Okay, not really…but I’m sure that a few Bulls fans cried over the recent Luol Deng/Andrew Bynum trade. As hard as it will be for me to see the small forward in a Cavalier uniform, I know that it must be done in order for Chicago to rebuild the Bulls franchise. Deng was all-smiles on Instagram,  rocking a Cleveland Basketball tee with the caption: “New beginning #cavsnation. ” The 28 year-old practiced with the Cavaliers for the first time on Wednesday.

LeBron James Sports an IAMNAMELESS Sweatshirt

He could be on a court…or on a plane. Either way, LeBron James will showcase his impeccable style. King James recently sported an IAMNAMELESS sweatshirt and neon green sneakers. I, for one, appreciate a man who understands the essence of a POP of color. The “Hold up Hold my Phone” print references lyrics from Drake’s hit single ‘Worst Behavior.’ Well, LeBron was certainly on his ‘Worst Behavior,’ as he went into warrior mode  against the New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday night.  In true Heat fashion…they took a while to get revved up. “We were able to turn the game around pretty fast.”  James said after the game (Miami Herald). The Heat was ultimately able to snag a 107-88 win.

Nick Young’s Graphic Hoodie

We don’t call Nick Young ‘Swaggy P’ for nothing! The Los Angeles Lakers’ small forward/shooting guard was photographed wearing a geometric Christopher Kane Black Grid Face Graphis Hoodie.

This hoodie is definitely hot…but  things aren’t looking so hot for the Lakers after their loss to the Dallas Mavericks on Tuesday night. Young even compared the post-game  locker room to a “funeral” (Lakers Nation). His rationale seems appropriate because the Lakers have lost eight of their last  nine games. If that doesn’t deserve a moment of silence…I do not know what does. Let us pray.

Dwight Howard’s Girlfriend flaunts a ‘Laker Hater’ Sweatshirt on Instagram

Oh, the shade! Dwight Howard is pretty hush about his brief stint with the Los Angeles Lakers. It is pretty clear that he wants to forget about that aspect of his career. His girlfriend, on the other hand, doesn’t. Howard’s leading lady, Christine Vest, made her allegiance known to everyone at the Toyota Center (and you know…the world)  when she wore a ‘Laker Hater’ Sweatshirt to Wednesday night’s game *insert side-eye here*.

Luckily for Ms. Vest, the Houston Rockets were ultimately able to snag a 99 – 113 win against the Lakers and Dwight Howard was able to experience his first win against his former team.

That’s it for now, Divas…but you know what? There is more where that came from next week! As always, Courtside Chic will keep you fabulously posted on the hottest NBA news and fashion!
