Basketball Player Jaxson Hayes’ Best Looks So Far This Season
NEW ORLEANS, UNITED STATES — Professional basketball player Jaxson Hayes is having an incredible rookie season.
The former University of Texas college athlete and Big 12 Freshman of the Year made his NBA debut for the New Orleans Pelicans on October 10th, 2019, scoring 19 points on 8-of-11 shooting against the Golden State Warriors in an 11 point loss.
On June 20, 2019, the Atlanta Hawks selected Hayes with the 8th overall pick of the 2019 NBA draft and then had his draft rights traded to New Orleans Pelicans along with the draft rights to the No. 17 pick Nickeil Alexander-Walker and the draft rights to the No. 35 pick Marcos Louzada Silva along with a heavily protected 2020 first round pick for the draft rights to No. 4 overall pick De’Andre Hunter and veteran wing Solomon Hill. The trade was officially completed on July 7, 2019.
At the young age of 19, Hayes stats are pretty good. On December 5th, 2019, he scored 17 points and 5 blocks in a 139-132 loss to the Phoenix Suns, becoming the third youngest player in NBA history to record at least such statistics in a single game, behind only LeBron James and Andrew Bynum.
We put together the New Orleans Pelicans‘ Center best looks so far this season. Today, the NBA is more like a fashion show and players are arriving to arenas looking like models on the runways in Paris, Milan, London and New York. NBA players are the new style icons. They’re influencing fashion, sitting front row at fashion shows, featured in the best fashion publications and online, and they are definitely moving the culture forward.
On top of that, just about every fashion house and sneaker company wants to collaborate with basketball players.
As far as Hayes, I think he should brand himself off the court. His height, good skin, hair, size and unique style will take him far in the fashion / modeling industry. He should consider signing with Wilhelmina.
