Fashion in the NBA has gone from an arms race to become the league's biggest hipster a season ago, to being a race between certain players doing everything possible to blur gender-related notions when it comes to clothing. This time, it's Kevin Durant's turn.

After Dwyane Wade spent some time during the Eastern Conference Semifinals wearing some very confident capri pants, it seems that Durant got a bit jealous.

What other way is there to show off your calves when there's a bit of a chill going on outside?

Durant took a cue from Wade, as spotted a picture on Durant's Instagram page of the Oklahoma City superstar wearing a pair of camouflage capri pants on Tuesday afternoon.

I might actually be one of the few who hopes this trend not only continues, but gets even more extreme as the months go along.

Down the road, we need to get Russell Westbrook wearing a pair of subtle high heels, LeBron James putting on a lacy shirt and Carmelo Anthony donning a hoop skirt during the playoffs next season.

Nothing about what these guys are doing in terms of experimental clothing necessarily looks good. I'm just curious to see which one of them is going to take it the furthest.

There's no doubt that Westbrook is in it for the long haul, but don't underestimate the stubbornness of Wade; he's liable to wear a sundress to the championship parade if the Miami Heat go on to beat the San Antonio Spurs.

Of course, they all still have a long way to go before anybody comes close to rivaling Dennis Rodman in a wedding dress.
