2024 NBA Conference Finals: 8 Looks That Stood Out

So Fresh, So Clean: 8 Looks That Stood Out In The 2024 NBA Conference Finals

Despite relatively short NBA Conference Finals bouts, fans were still treated to some fresh outfits from the league’s brightest stars. 

After a total of nine games played, we’re through with the 2024 NBA Conference Finals, with the Boston Celtics and Dallas Mavericks setting up their first-ever NBA Finals matchup at the expense of the young Indiana Pacers and Minnesota Timberwolves.

However, that’s not to say we were deprived of eye-catching ‘fits from our favorite hoopers. So while we wait for Game 1 of the NBA Finals, let’s quickly revisit some of the cleanest looks from the 2024 NBA Conference Finals.

For Game 1 against the Indiana Pacers, Jayson Tatum put on a black knitted long-sleeved top, which was accentuated by his Boston Celtics’ iconic green and white. Simple and straightforward, but a great example of how team colors will always work for an outfit.

Dwight Powell has been one of the league’s sharpest dressers throughout this year’s postseason, often showing up in a variety of business casual looks. For the NBA Conference Finals, there’s this pink (or a very light purple) suit he wore in Game 3 against the Minnesota Timberwolves, which was stylishly paired with some rose-colored glasses.

To close out the Pacers, Jrue Holiday pulled up in this knitted sweater featuring none other than the GOAT Michael Jordan during his University of North Carolina days. A major statement piece for the two-way ace during the otherwise quick NBA Conference Finals if anything.

Despite losing against the Dallas Mavericks in Game 5, Mike Conley pulled up to the Target Center in this clean look featuring a boxy, cropped tee, and denim jeans with pinstripe-like patterns, which instantly elevates an otherwise straightforward look.

As high-maintenance as it is, an all-white look will always work — just look at Dallas rookie Dereck Lively II ahead of their series opener against Minnesota. The all-white look aside, the center also complements his top’s gold buttons with a matching bracelet and some chains, which result in subtle, but perfect complements to complete his look.

Ahead of Game 3 against the Celtics, Pacers center Myles Turner opted for this preppy look, built on a baby blue sweater with brown accents, wide-legged mustard trousers, and some trusty white sneakers.

Let’s take a moment to appreciate Nickeil Alexander-Walker’s Game 5 fit against Dallas, which is essentially a retro “Flying V” Vancouver Canucks jersey paired with camouflage shorts and a pair of Timberland boots.

And while Alexander-Walker is a Toronto native, we might have gotten an idea of which Canadian NHL team he actually supports through this clean outfit.

Understandably, Pascal Siakam’s Game 3 outfit versus the Celtics might come off as a “simple” look for some. However, a more critical look at his pieces shows us how properly complemented colors can and will always be effective when planning an outfit.

There’s his white shirt with yellow graphics, which is paired with light brown cargo pants, and off-white sneakers. Of course, how can we forget about his cream-colored beanie, and a light-toned gold chain too?
