I dressed and looked like the dudes from my hood that I grew up with.Iversons style was frequently cited as the reason the NBA instituted a dress code, and though players can no longer dress exactly like he did in his playing days, he sees himself as a style pioneer for players like Westbrook, who frequently push the boundaries in their own unique ways.The great feeling about it is all the young dudes now can be who they want to be and not be scared to dress and look the way they want to look, he said.
